CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese and Designer Coral Castillo put the “Mac” in Macramé with a new fashion collab

    This autumn, CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese is offering an opportunity to showcase your bold style not only on your dinner plate but also in your wardrobe. The CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese x Coral Castillo MAC’ramé Collection is an exceptional collaboration with the fashion designer, macramé artist, and creative director, Coral Castillo. The collection includes sneakers and a waist bag, combining the distinctive and bold flavor of CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese with Coral Castillo’s unique interpretation of macramé. This collection offers exclusive statement pieces to enhance your wardrobe with an individual touch.

    From the macramé designs reminiscent of its spiral noodles to the vibrant colorways, the MAC’ramé Collection highlights some of the qualities that make CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese a tasty and exciting choice over your typical mac and cheese. The fusion of CHEETOS’ flavor and Castillo’s dramatic aesthetic add an unexpected swagger to two staple pieces, while still being fun and functional.

    “Being in fashion requires you to be bold and break the rules a little, so it was refreshing to work with a brand like CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese that embraces that,” said Castillo. “I drew inspiration from the vibrant and bold brand flavors and gave them a macramé interpretation, which was both fun and challenging because this was my first time designing shoes. Luckily, I’m no stranger to fashion challenges and I was ready for this new adventure. I’m proud of this collaboration and can’t wait to see people wearing these pieces.”

    Bold right out of the box, the CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese x Coral Castillo MAC’ramé Collection items come in three colorways – orange, green and red – inspired by the CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese Bold & Cheesy, Cheesy Jalapeño, and FLAMIN’ HOT flavors.

    • The MAC-Top Sneakers: A fun twist on one of Chester Cheetah’s signature apparel pieces. The MAC-Tops are fitted with Castillo’s handmade macramé designs and lined with cheetah print on the insole and shoe tongue. Fans can show their love of CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese with every step they take in these sneakers, which include a custom orange outsole with the CHEETOS logo and spiral noodle shapes.
    • The Fanny MAC: Remember our CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese Fanny MAC from last summer? Well, we’ve brought it back with a MAC’ramé touch to add functional couture to your fit. With Castillo’s handmade macramé and CHEETOS’ bold flavor, it features a corkscrew noodle zipper, smooth cheetah print lining, and an adjustable faux leather strap with handmade macramé details. Best of all, the Fanny MAC is also designed to fit a 5.9 oz box of CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese to help you take your favorite Mac anywhere.

    “The CHEETOS Mac ‘N Cheese x Coral Castillo MAC’ramé Collection embodies how we would like to shake up this comfort category in a bold way that is distinctly CHEETOS,” said Kristin Kroepfl, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Quaker Foods North America at PepsiCo. “Whether it’s your mac and cheese or your personal style, this collaboration celebrates stepping outside of your comfort zone, and we could not have found a better creative partner than Coral to bring this to life.”
