Starbucks is teaming up with Band of Outsiders.
LA based ‘Band of Outsiders’ is creating a limited and exclusive collection of ceramic bugs for world famous coffee tycoon Starbucks.
The mugs are designed as a tribute to ‘drip’ , the slang word for coffee, often used by founder and creative director Scott Sternberg.
Responsible for initiating the deal was Steven Kolb, CEO at the CFDA. “You get these phone calls from Steven a couple of times a year and he usually prefaces it ‘I think you’re going to say no…’ but I sort of surprised him – and instinctually and immediately jumped on it”. Scot Stenberg stated.
Starbuck had previous collaborations, in the past they teamed up with Jonathan Adler, Stacey Bendet and Rodarte, to name a few.
The exclusive mugs will be available, starting this week.
