Rodarte x Starbucks: The Best $12 You'll Spend On A Gift This Year

November 13, 2012 by Justine Schwartz

The word “mainstream” doesn’t exactly come to mind when you think of Rodarte, but sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy have just taken a major merchandising step that puts the brand in every mall – and on every corner – near you. Rodarte’s limited edition collection for Starbucks, which just dropped today, features small gifts like cups and gift cards in a “pixelated” grey, silver and neon yellow design, a color palette borrowed from their SS13 collection (above). For those of you in the market for stylish stocking stuffers (say, for a fashion obsessed niece? or yourself?), there’s a tote bag ($12.95), canvas cup sleeve ($4.95) and travel mug ($12.95).

While Rodarte has already teamed up with mass retailer Target, this is the coffee chain’s first-ever fashion collaboration. Kate and Laura told Racked:

What was really exciting was working with a brand that has such a signature visual identity and culture. Everyone recognizes the Starbucks logo. Laura and I immediately immersed ourselves in trying to find a way to play with that visual culture and reinterpreting it. It was interesting to start from something that was very iconic and known—and with products, not clothing. As a clothing designer, you think about what you’re making, not what you’re putting on it. We had to have a concept that we could build product out of instead of just saying well, we have an idea for a collection and this color represents that and playing with silhouettes. You have to get your point across on top of a card.

While some in the industry are calling the collaboration “unlikely,” we think it’s a perfect fit. Aren’t some of the most stylish people on the planet caught with a coffee cup on hand almost daily (ahem, Olsen twins) — to the point that it’s become almost a fashion accessory? And aren’t you always struggling at the last minute to fine quality gifts under $20? Well, here you go!
