It’s Starbucks in your area y’all! Or more accurately, Starbucks x BLACKPINK in your area. The special collaboration has just been announced and it will be available across 9 countries in Asia – including Malaysia – beginning 25th July till the end of August.
Since yesterday, social media has been blowing up with fans (particularly Blinks) going gaga over the limited edition merchandise; even our local influencers are obsessed with the new Starbucks x BLACKPINK collab. If this is any indication, we predict these black and pink items will be selling like hot cakes the minute it launches. In fact, pre-orders have already started.
Aptly themed #TurnUpYourSummer, Blinks and Starbucks lovers can expect a brighter, bolder, and more exciting summer with a bevy of vibrant offerings embodying the endearing spirit and inimitable style of K-pop’s biggest girl group. For the first time ever, you can experience the new BLACKPINK Strawberry Choco Cream Frappuccino Blended beverage that is inspired by the group’s chic and edgy “Born Pink” album.
Priced from RM20.50, the BLACKPINK Strawberry Choco Cream Frappuccino Blended drink consists of the stunning black and pink-hued beverage blends strawberry syrup and dark chocolate sauce with feel-good oat milk and chocolate curls, topped with light pink whipped cream and a symbolic heart-shaped chocolate. The colourful beverage is bound to uplift this summer season.
As for the Starbucks x BLACKPINK merchandise, there are 11 types of drinkware and six lifestyle accessories featuring a signature contrasting pink and black colour palette and funky graffiti motifs. Each of these items embodies the girl group’s playful vibes and dynamic energy. From Starbucks reusable cups, mugs and tumblers in signature BLACKPINK hues, to reusable tote bags, passport holders, and key chains, you can purchase them at selected Starbucks stores across Malaysia.
Luckily for all you Malaysian Blinks, Starbucks is offering a pre-sale opened on 21st July for the first 190 customers. For RM2818, you can purchase the entire Starbucks x BLACKPINK collection through a Google form via Starbucks Malaysia’s IG stories. Here’s an idea of what you’ll get:
