The US coffee company has hired the New York City-based fashion designer to create two cool new limited edition objects.
Stacey Bendet has created a limited edition 'Bearista bear', as well as a ceramic tumbler which will go on sale in Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada from early November.
The designer was inspired by "a dancing Alice + Olivia bear! Properly caffeinated." "As for the tumbler, it is our signature stripe on a signature tutu," she added.
The double-walled 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. The fun products will also be available online at starbucksstore.com.
Previous Starbucks collaborations include last year's caffeine capsule collection with Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy as well as the illustrated ceramic tumbler created for the coffee house this June by fellow fashionista Charlotte Ronson.
