LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BIG NEWS! Following the success of ban.do's 2017 Asia Pacific collaboration, ban.do and Starbucks are teaming up on their first, limited edition collection for US and Canada* licensed store locations, which includes Starbucks stores inside select grocery stores, airports, hotels, and retailers.
This is the first time a ban.do + Starbucks collection will be available in US and Canada* — a response to demand that was sparked from regional fans of the brands on social media after the success of the launch in Asia Pacific.
"Our meaningful relationship with Starbucks has been so valuable to our brand trajectory," said Lana Hansen, ban.do's chief growth officer. "Collaborations are a major part of our growth strategy and we're thrilled to showcase ban.do within the Starbucks community. There's no better feeling than giving our loyal fans what they've been asking for!"
The collection will be available in all Starbucks US and Canada* licensed stores.The assortment features fall-inspired patterns with a signature ban.do twist on two 24 oz. Starbucks Cold Cups, two Starbucks Double Wall Travelers, a ceramic mug, two notebooks, and a pencil pouch.
The cozy icons design is ban.do's playful take on everything the brand loves about fall—rain boots, comfy sweaters, and a warm cup of coffee —with fun phrases on a soft pink background.
"Traditional fall weather is pretty limited in Los Angeles, so we feel really excited and nostalgic about fall things, like a road trip to the mountains or days chilly enough to wear a scarf," said Ali LaBelle, creative director at ban.do. "We wanted these pieces to bring a sense of fall fun wherever you are."
Following the past season's most popular floral pattern, ban.do delivers again with a signature floral for fall. Midnight floral, an exclusive design for Target stores, features bright flowers on a black background.
To celebrate the collection, ban.do will also run a giveaway. One grand prize winner will receive the entire collection and a $1,000 gift card to Target. For details and more information on the giveaway, visit www.bando.com/starbucksgiveaway
The ban.do + Starbucks fall collection will be available in select US and Canada* Starbucks licensed stores and Target beginning September 5th.
The Asia Pacific-exclusive collection in 2017 sold out 75% on the first day. At the same time, ban.do hosted a social giveaway for fans in the US, which yielded over 26,000 entries and over 1,300 uses of the collaboration hashtag #bandoxstarbucks.
