Coffee and fashion, could there be a more wonderful combination?

Starbucks has teamed up with CFDA designers Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet, and Billy Reid to create tee shirts in honor of the company’s 40 years of service dedicated to coffee and culture.

The three designers have each designed a tee shirt inspired by the coffee brand with each shirt incorporating the designer’s aesthetic.

Alexander Wang’s approach is literal as the unisex tee shirt’s design unmistakably has a coffee spill that drips down into a coffee formation on the logo.

Inspired by Starbuck’s humanitarian and global peace efforts, Sophie Theallet’s incorporated continents as a bold print into the design of her tee shirt.

Billy Reid has designed a women and men’s look. Taking on an aesthetic appeal, the woman’s tee has the iconic Siren logo splashed onto the arm of the shirt.

The men’s shirt, which has a “broken in” vintage vibe, features the logo and the number “71,” which is the year the company opened its first store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market.

The tee shirts, which  retail for $85 each, are currently on sale at Starbucks.com as well as in select Nordstrom stores and at Nordstrom.com.
