Starbucks + Ban.do’s New Collaboration Has the Perfect Summer Vibe… But There’s a Catch
Starbucks has had us pretty preoccupied with the recent Frappuccino-based madness — you better believe we’re drooling over their Banana Split Frappuccino and Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino — but now, BAM! They’ve totally surprised us with a collab collection with Ban.do that is so perfectly summery, you’ll absolutely fall for every piece. But… there’s a catch.
Together, Starbucks + Ban.do want you to “dial up the sass” with the limited-edition, 10-piece collection of drink-ware and accessories that feature vibrant floral prints (think: your fave summer dress or Dad’s most fun Hawaiian shirt) and a “Good Times” slogan. So perfect for the beach or while sunning yourself poolside!
Featuring cold cups, double-walled travelers, notebooks, totes, luggage tags, passport holders, pencil pouches, and even drink coasters, the collection includes everything you need for those glorious summer days.
The only catch is that the Starbucks + Ban.do collection (which launches May 16) will only be available in Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Taiwan, South Korea, and China. *starts looking up cheap airfare*
But before you board a plane or start nagging your international friends to score you a piece or two, you may want to check out the Ban.do x Starbucks giveaway (don’t fret over the blank page… the contest goes live on May 16 and runs until June 16, so just keep your eyes open) — you’ll get a chance to win the entire collection. Good luck!
