Starbucks marks its fifth designer mug collaboration partnering with Band of Outsiders for a collection of two limited edition ceramic mugs. Sleek and modern The 12 oz. mugs feature either black or multicoloured paint drips, dripping down the container, tribute to Band of Outsiders’s founder Scott Sternberg’s favorite slang attributed to coffee, “drip.” Speaking on the origins of the collaboration, Sternberg said, “You get these phone calls from Steven (Steven Kolb, chief executive officer of the Council of Fashion Designers of America) a couple of times a year and he usually prefaces it ‘You’re going to say no,’ but I sort of surprised him and instinctually and immediately jumped on it.”
The Band of Outsiders for Starbucks Limited Edition Designer Ceramic Mugs will be available online at StarbucksStore on June 10, 2014 and in participating Starbucks retail locations in the U.S. and Canada on June 24, 2014. Each mug will retail for $14.95.
