Something's Brewing: Designers Create Starbucks-Inspired T-shirts

Posted on

Starbucks has been providing our sleep-deprived selves with a daily caffeine fix for decades, and now, it’s also providing us with a fashion fix! In honor of the company’s 40 years of coffee and culture, the brand is launching an iconic T-shirt collection, complete with coffee-colored hues.

The bean roasters tapped designers Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet and Billy Reid — recipients of the past three annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards — to create an exclusive line of tees inspired by the brand.

According to WWD, the three designers all took their own direction with the tees, with Wang’s design (middle) resembling a spilled cup of coffee, Theallet’s (top) featuring a fitted shape with grosgrain ribbon and Reid’s (bottom) looking preppy with a worn-in feel.

The limited-edition shirts are available while supplies last for $85 each at and select Nordstrom locations. Tell us: Will you buy a limited edition Starbucks tee?
