There aren't many options for the kitchen savvy outside of gadgets, decor, and cookware. Pyknic is changing that this holiday season with food themed clothing for chefs down to the common food lover.
Online PR News – 19-November-2012 – Philadelphia, PA – "Young & Hungry" lifestyle streetwear brand, Pyknic, is making the holiday season a little easier for friend and family members of chefs, culinary students, foodies, and food lovers. Their unique food-themed prints on soft goods: t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hats, are helping the aforementioned continue their lifestyle in comfort outside of the kitchens and restaurants.
The streetwear clothing line's "young and hungry" mantra resonates with their worldwide supporters (also known as "crEATures") of all backgrounds as inspiration to seek out dreams with hard work rather than becoming a product of society's expectations.
Pyknic has been worn by the likes of Top Chef 6 winner Michael Voltaggio and Roble Ali of Bravo’s Chef Roble & Co. Pyknic has also been featured in “The Source” Magazine and was named to Bloomberg Businessweek’s America’s Best Young Entrepreneurs 2010.
"It's hard shopping during the Holidays,” says Stephen Thompson, 26, a DeSales University '09 (Center Valley, PA) graduate, "shoppers aren't usually familiar with the different kitchen gadgets out there. In a market crowded with hardware, food product, aprons, and chef wear, our Pyknic garments are a unique gift."
Thompson created the lifestyle brand as an outlet for his culture of food, sport, friends, and music. Pyknic's premium t-shirts are illustrated with food concepts in mind, retailing between $20-$22 on their website (www.pyknic.com).
