Haute Coffee!

11 Oct


The amazingly talented indie design duo Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte announced  that they have collaborated with mega-coffee chain Starbucks. This means everyone can buy a little piece of Rodarte without breaking the bank!  The collaboration will include  four limited-edition items that are set to go on sale at select Starbucks locations  and online  November 13th, 2012.  A modern pixelated checkerboard print that is aimed to appeal to both men and women will be featured on a tumbler ($13.95), reusable cup sleeve ($5.45), tote bag ($13.95) and a limited-edition gift card as well. For the design duo, it’s a chance to put their name — and their edgy conceptual style — out to a new audience. Their designs are not exactly in line with mass-market taste.   “Our clothing is specialized,” Laura Mulleavy recently said in an interview “and when we are thinking of Rodarte, we choose things that say who we are as designers, but we’re not limited to that. We like the idea of collaborations and putting our thought process somewhere else.”
