Starbucks is pairing world class coffee and luxury design.
SEATTLE, 2015-12-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — To celebrate the holidays, Starbucks and renowned fashion designer Anna Sui created limited-edition merchandise. Designed exclusively for Starbucks, this chic collection is now featured at select Starbucks® stores in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
“At Starbucks, we have a history of innovative relationships with leading designers. Through our collaboration with Anna Sui, we are excited to offer our customers this exclusive and fashionable merchandise in our stores,” said Brady Brewer, senior vice president of Category Brand Management for Starbucks China and Asia Pacific Region.
“I drew inspiration for the collection from my New York boutique,” said Anna Sui, founder and designer of Anna Sui. “This is where my passions come to life, so I wanted to represent it in my designs for Starbucks.”
Sui’s penchant for design began at age four, when she started making her own clothes. Before the end of her senior year in high school, she was accepted to Parsons School of Design in New York City. In 1981, after only two years at Parsons, Sui launched her first design collection. Eleven years later, she opened her first flagship store and today, has more than 50 boutiques in eight countries and her collection is sold in 300 stores in more than 30 countries.
