Starbucks is giving usthe opportunity to add a little swag to ourfrapp order, and were certainly grateful.
None of this would be possible withoutJen Gotch, and we owe her a venti-sized amount of credit (x 100).
When the chief creative officer of ban.do the lifestyle brand chock-full of colorful accessories we all love headed toTokyo and Kyoto fora weeklong vacation, she intended it to be for pleasure. However, Gotchstime in Asia ultimately resulted in the fusion of two of our favorite brands.
Shereceived a call from Starbucksto partner on a collection, and thats when her inspiration from Asia came to fruition.
Now, of course, we are reaping the beautiful benefits with the perfect floral mug for our coffee. Who wouldnt want to carry theirmorning cup of joe in that beauty?
Thank goodness Gotch wanted to take a trip, huh?
From the culture to the five-story art stores, floral-shaped cotton candy, rich history and traditions, it was everything I thought it would be and more, she said in a Starbucks press release. I knew that I would come back someday to explore other countries in Asia.
The exploration led to the ever-so convenient coasters.
They makefor a perfect accessory when our Midnight Mint MochaFrapp starts to drip.
A clean kitchentable? Why yes, thats a good time to me.
We all know that Starbucks is a go-to hangout for creative types, right?
So what better way to channel that creativity than with these notebooks? Ill take both, thanks.
Dont forget your pencils!
Make sure you carry everything in this super-cute tote.
Though you probably have your wallet ready to purchase the merchandiseduringyour next coffee run, there is a catch.
This was an Asian-inspired project, and unfortunately, the limited-edition collectionis only available in Asia.
But before you give your barista an earful if youre not in Asia, make sure you enter the ban.do contest for your chance to win some swag.
Good luck, coffee fans!
