Los Angeles-based lifestyle brand ban.do teamed up with Starbucks for a new summer-ready collection. Known for its love of bright colors, bold patterns and quirky sayings, ban.do is bringing its signature playful style to the line. This is the latest in a string of collaborations for the coffee giant, which has previously worked with brands like Lilly Pulitzer and Anna Sui.
The collection will feature the obvious staples, like tumblers and to-go mugs, but will also include various accessories ranging from luggage tags to tote bags and pencil cases. The line comes in two designs, Tropical Floral and Good Times, both inspired by LA. And of course, there’s plenty of millennial pink.
But before you start planning a complete overhaul of your summer accessories, there’s one slight hiccup that may derail your plans: As of right now, the collection is only available internationally.
“All the designs were based off of the idea that we’d bring a little slice of L.A. sunshine and fun to the other side of the world,” ban.do founder and chief creative officer Jen Gotch told Teen Vogue. “We wanted to give our international fans—both old and new—something really special that they couldn’t get anywhere else.”
Starting May 16th, anyone in Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Taiwan, South Korea, and China will be able to purchase the ban.do x Starbucks collection for a limited time.
If your travel plans won’t take you to any of those countries, there may still be a way to get your hands on this fun summer collection: To celebrate the launch, ban.do is hosting a giveaway on their site beginning on May 16th. The brands also plan to launch a second collection sometime in July. Stay tuned.
