MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Doritos® is a brand that ignites people to experiment and try new things. By looking at the world through a different lens, Doritos continues to Try Another Angle by approaching snacking from a unique perspective, delivering bold flavours and unexpected takes on classics. This summer is no exception. Enter: Doritos® Tangy All Dressed flavoured tortilla chips.
And just like this new twist on a Canadian classic, Doritos is adding its own spin on a ‘merch drop’ by doing the unexpected … dropping a collection exclusively for NPCs. Introducing the Doritos x MRKNTN Tangy All Dressed Drop, a limited-edition collab that hits different. Designed in partnership with Montreal-based skate couture designer, Markantoine Lynch-Boisvert, who is known for bringing a new angle to skate wear while creating unique, modern, and elevated pieces in the space.
The drop takes an unexpected angle that only Doritos can, to give usually unnoticed NPCs a chance to boldly stand out. Featuring five custom looks inspired by the new flavour, each item in the collection tries another angle on skate wear and integrates the iconic Doritos Triangle throughout in unexpected ways. From a Doritos-exclusive triangle tartan pattern that redefines plaid, to a cone-spiked vest with quilted triangular details, each element is designed to make heads turn in the digital world.
“Doritos has a legacy for bringing the unexpected from snacking experiences to how the brand shows up in culture,” said Lisa Allie, Senior Marketing Director of PepsiCo Foods Canada. “To launch the Doritos twist on the Canadian classic of All Dressed, the brand is trying another angle on a merch drop to launch a first-of-its-kind drop exclusively within gaming that our fans didn’t see coming.”
