Remix takes over this new inner-city hotspot with a high fashion twist

Every issue, we strive to step out of the box, and away from the mainstream to produce shoots that inspire, elevate and set Remix apart from the rest.

Last week, we did exactly that.

Team Remix took over a newly minted KFC store to spice things up, the fashionable way. Fusing high fashion and hot chicken, we styled our latest editorial in the dynamic new KFC space in Auckland’s CBD.

Sitting proudly in the middle of Fort Street, we recruited a team of creatives to shoot a high fashion editorial that sought to break boundaries and shift perception. Style is objective, after all.

The result? #Flawless. Check out every delicious-looking pic, here.

More info on the store…

The freshly opened urban-style KFC store is set to become the brand's debut for its new 'fast casual' concept. Located in the heart of Auckland City on Fort Street, KFC is now accessible to city-siders, after Restaurant Brands Group CEO Russel Creedy says that KFC has been missing from the CBD for too long - that we can agree on. 

Fort Street's KFC is like no other and will offer table service as well as let customers order their meal directly via kiosks. Date night at KFC will never be the same.

The store has also extended its trading hours to 2am on Thursdays-Saturdays so we'll never experience the disappointment of our favourite store being closed for service.  

“We knew we had to offer something new and different to complement the existing landscape and appeal to the local crowd, so we’ve come up with a fresh new urban concept that brings together the best of KFC," says Creedy. 

“From open-plan seating to the kiosks and the mural of Colonel Sanders, the Original Celebrity Chef by artist Mr. G, we’re inviting all of our fans to come and experience this new KFC – day or night.”

The best part though is the self-serve chip seasoning. KFC’s famous chip seasoning will be available on tables so customers can add more of the finger-lickin' flavour themselves.
