Is Alexander Wang considered “downtown” anymore? He lives in a giant loft in TriBeCa, regularly dresses supermodels/movie stars, stocks his runway with exclusively A-list mannequins and… just designed a shirt for Starbucks. …Even Kim Kardashian is a fan.
Anyway, Wang, along with Sophie Theallet and Billy Reid, created a limited edition t-shirt for the mega-chain. While Theallet was inspired by the world map and Reid embellished the shoulder, Wang cleverly replicated the logo in coffee stains. It is still, however, a Starbucks branded shirt.
The shirts are available online and at select Nordstrom locations for $85 a pop.
