Autumn has finally arrived (definitely not in Malaysia, though)! This means that various outlets especially food and beverages outlets would be coming out with their autumn-themed products for the perusal of their fellow customers. If there was one place that everyone looks forward to when it comes to seasonal promotions, it would definitely be Starbucks with their unique drinks and distinctive collection of tumblers and coffee mugs.
Well, this autumn, Starbucks is once again bringing us their best creations. This time around, under a collaboration with Stacey Bendet, CEO and Creative Director of top fashion house alice + olivia to offer a stylish designer merchandise collection, available for a limited time at select Starbucks stores across Malaysia.
Isn’t this exciting? Well, with Stacey’s fun and sophisticated eye for design, this collection would showcase two whimsical designs. This includes the iconic, “Stace Face” and a modern interpretation of the “Stace Face” with a colourful twist. This, interesting twist features a vibrant assortment of drinkware and lifestyle accessories. Designed to empower women and as an ode to femininity, the collection indeed rings women empowerment!
Erin Silvoy, Vice President, Product and Marketing of Starbucks Asia Pacific says, “Starbucks and Stacey Bendet are united by their aspiration to create unique and delightful experiences. Since our very first collaboration with alice + olivia, our customers have kept asking for more. Now, we’re excited to launch a new Starbucks® X alice + olivia collection with bold, yet chic designs fit for everyday occasions, to encourage our customers to embrace self-expression and give them confidence to live a life in style. Both Starbucks and alice + olivia love creating unique and empowering experiences. With our rainbow Stace Face designs, we hope to bring some colourful fun to the world!”
Now, let’s have a look at the collection itself which consists of a small tote, a bearista bear, a 12oz ceramic mug, 16oz Stainless Steel Tumbler and 16oz Ceramic Double Wall Traveler. Here’s a breakdown of the products:
This tote has a timeless look, reimagined with a modern interpretation of the ‘Stace Face’ with a colourful and stunning twist. There’s an interior pocket too so, there’s more places to store tiny trinkets. With it being lightweight, one could carry it with ease.
This soft, plush toy is a reinterpretation of the Bearista Bear wearing a custom sweater designed in the renowned alice + olivia style, matched by the embroidered alice + olivia shoes.
12oz Ceramic Mug
Now, this is a glossy clear-glazed stoneware that gives a special character to the mug. It’s hand-painted and the mug body is available in 2 different designs — one with a colourful spectrum of the “Rainbow Stace Squad” and one of the “Iconic Stace Face”.
16oz Stainless Steel Tumbler
This tumbler would be a perfect and fashionable addition to keep your beverage in a perfect temperature whether it’s hot or cold. This is due to the fact that this tumbler comes with a thermo 3D Double Wall vacuum insulation technology, as well as the medical grade stainless steel so that there is not transfer of flavours or metal after taste. This is also available in 2 designs — the “Rainbow Stace Squad” and “Iconic Stace Face”.
16oz Ceramic Double Wall Traveler
This is double-wall constructed with flat-white paint and an opaque black lid which uses a slide open/close function for convenient usage, in two designs to choose from, the “Rainbow Stace Squad” and “Iconic Stace Face”.
From RM98 onwards, get your hands on this amazing collection beginning 28th September 2021. However, it should be noted that this is only going to be available at select Starbucks® stores across Malaysia, while supplies last.
