Alice + Olivia Teams Up with Starbucks
After successful collaborations with Charlotte Ronson, Jonathan Adler,Christian Siriano and Rodarte, Starbucks Coffee Co. has teamed up with Alice + Olivia.
Stacey Bendet, the designer of Alice + Olivia, created limited-edition ceramic tumblers and a Bearista bear. The Alice + Olivia items will be available starting on Nov. 12 at participating locations , and in Canada, beginning Saturday. They will also be sold online starting Friday at starbucksstore.com.
"As a designer, most of my day is spent working on clothing, so it's always fun to work in a completely different realm," said Bendet. She added that her two little girls inspired her to make an Alice + Olivia teddy bear. When moms are getting coffee, the bear will appeal to their children. The bear looks like she walked straight out of an Alice + Olivia boutique in a black-and-white-striped dress with a black lacy crinoline, a black beret with red bow, red shoes and a pearl necklace. The tumbler features a black tutu.
The 12-oz. tumbler will sell for $19.95 in the U.S. and $21.95 in Canada, and the bear will retail for $19.95 in the U.S. and $21.45 in Canada.
"It's been incredible to work with Starbucks," said Bendet, who was introduced to the company through Stephen Kolb, chief executive officer of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
