Brandon Blackwood created the limited-edition sling bottle bags to celebrate the new ready-to-drink Starbucks Pink Drink and Starbucks Paradise Drink. The fashion designer says the sling bottle bags are the perfect way to carry the new beverages on-the-go.
Starbucks RTD beverages feature vibrant fruit flavors combined with coconut milk and refreshing fruit juice. Starbucks Pink Drink features bold fruit flavors of strawberry and acai combined with coconut milk and refreshing fruit juice. The Starbucks Paradise Drink features tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and passion fruit blended with coconut milk and refreshing fruit juice. These refreshing non-dairy beverages are available nationwide where groceries are sold.
Pink Drink was initially created by a fan and took social media by storm in 2016. It joined the Starbucks menu in 2017, followed by Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverage last summer. The fan-favorite beverage with its bright hues and refreshing taste is more than just drinks. It’s an expression of individual personality.
The new Brandon Blackwood + Starbucks Sip & Sling Collection features sling bottle bags in two gradient colors, a bold pink-hued design inspired by the fruit flavors of strawberry and acai in Starbucks Pink Drink, and an ombre design inspired by pineapple and passion fruit flavors in Starbucks Paradise Drink.
Blackwood likes giving people fun and bold ways to accessorize and individually express themselves. He described the partnership with Starbucks as a dream collaboration. “My designs are a reflection of my creativity and how my community inspires me, and I credit social media with not only helping me connect with them, but driving our popularity relatively quickly over the last few years.”
The design includes a space to carry a bottle and a compartment for items such as phones and cards.
