When Howard Schultz said Starbucks will expand into new categories, he apparently meant fashion. The Mermaid asked designers Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet, and Billy Reid to each create a special T-shirt featuring the logo of everyone's favorite Seattle-based local coffee shop. Fellow Seattle-based company Nordstrom is the exclusive retailer.
The cost of a designer T-shirt featuring an fashion-y iteration the new wordless mermaid: $85. One version even comes with artful faux-coffee splashes. Thanks to Sprudge for bringing this new fashion must-have to our attention.
