Starbucks + Alexander Wang… Really?
Are the coffee chain’s commissioned limited edition tees by Alexander Wang, Billy Reid and Sophie Theallet a must-have?
If you crave designer duds with your morning cup of Joe, look no further than mega-chain Starbucks for your fix.
For its big 4-0, the coffee company has released three themed tees from Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet, and Billy Reid.
The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners each created a limited edition t-shirt for the collaboration. While Alexander Wang smartly replicated the iconic logo out of coffee stains, Theallet looked to the globe for inspiration in her world map shirt. Reid kept his design minimal –simply a Starbucks logo on the side of one sleeve –but with a vintage, worn in feel.
Though the chain has teamed up with musicians, this will mark its first fashion initiative. If you absolutely must get your jittery hands on these designs, be prepared to pony up –each tee sells for $85 online and at select Nordstrom locations.
