Alice + Olivia's Stacey Bendet Teams With Starbucks

The designer has created limited-edition ceramic tumblers and a Bearista bear, which will be available at participating locations in the U.S. beginning Nov. 12.

COFFEE BREAK: Following collaborations with Charlotte Ronson, Jonathan Adler, Christian Siriano and Rodarte, Starbucks Coffee Co. has now turned its attention to Alice + Olivia. Stacey Bendet, designer of Alice + Olivia, has created limited-edition ceramic tumblers and a Bearista bear, which will be available at participating Starbucks in the U.S., beginning Nov. 12, and in Canada, beginning Saturday. It will also be sold online starting Friday at starbucksstore.com.

The items feature the designer’s signature black-and-white palette and hand-painted metallic accents.

“As a designer, most of my day is spent working on clothing, so it’s always fun to work in a completely different realm,” said Bendet. She said that having two little girls inspired her to make an Alice + Olivia teddy bear, so when moms are getting coffee, the bear will appeal to their children. The bear is very stylishly dressed in a black-and-white-striped dress with a black lacy crinoline, a black beret with red bow, red shoes and a pearl necklace. The tumbler has a black tutu.

The 12-oz. tumbler will sell for $19.95 in the U.S. and $21.95 in Canada, and the bear will retail for $19.95 in the U.S. and $21.45 in Canada.

“It’s been incredible to work with Starbucks,” said Bendet, who was introduced to the company through Stephen Kolb, chief executive officer of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
