Popeyes' fashion line is based on the chain's employee uniforms.

The limited-edition collection features 10 items ranging from hats costing roughly $10 to hooded jackets for upward of $40. The relaxed-fit style is created with the brand's iconic color scheme, orange and maroon.

Popeyes has been immersed in the chicken sandwich wars with rivals Chick-fil-A, McDonald's and KFC after the Miami, Florida-based company released its version of a chicken sandwich last August. The fried piece of poultry sparked an outcry among fast-food fans when it sold out, but the shortage only increased demand and hype on social media.

Popeyes' version of the chicken sandwich was so popular, it sold out merely two weeks after its debut. What's more, sales were still 17 percent higher than the average two weeks after it sold out, according to analytics firm Second Measure.

Twitter users drew a resemblance between the Popeyes brand and Beyonce's sold-out Ivy Park collaboration with Adidas, both of which feature yellow, burgundy and orange hues.
