Hot or Not? Alexander Wang for Starbucks



To celebrate its fortieth birthday, Starbucks asked CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award winners Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet, and Billy Reid to design a line of limited-edition t-shirts. Priced at $85.00 each, Theallet and Reid designed fairly standard logo shirts, while Wang "designed" a t-shirt with a giant coffee stain on the front (above). If the price alone doesn't offend you, I'm sure the idea of paying that price for a pre-stained shirt will. (If you're a klutz like me, you could do that to any old shirt without even trying!) Still, I want to know...



S.S.W. Asks: Do you think Wang's design is clever or kitschy? Comment below or on our Facebook or Twitter pages.

Can't say I'm a fan of either the shirt or the silly price tag.

The idea was clever, but $85 for a ruined white tee? No thank you!

Haha, I actually think the design is quirky enough to contemplate buying it. :)

For $85 I'd make my own, in fact, I may have one lying around somewhere that cost a whole lot less :)

Ooooh, my gosh! That is the worst! I am so paranoid about stuff falling onto my top, I can't IMAGINE wearing a shirt with a stain on purpose!!!!

Yeah, the price alone would keep me from buying a stupid tee...but that doesn't even *look* good!!! I'm so disappointed in Vera, she usually nails it!
