Who isn’t Christian Siriano working with these days? He’s inked deals with Puma, Fierce Mamas maternity wear, Payless Shoes, Victoria’s Secret, and now…Starbucks.
No, the season four ‘Project Runway’ winner won’t be slinging coffee or wearing a barista apron anytime soon, but he is reportedly working on a “holiday collaboration” with the coffee giant. According to Examiner.com, Siriano was set to unveil the concept for his promotion sometime this week, though New York Magazine’s The Cut, says news outlets won’t be able to report it until November 17th.
What a tease! This actually isn’t the first team-up between Starbucks and ‘Project Runway’; season three finalist Mychael Knight worked with the chain in 2007 on a line of customized T-shirts.
Still, we’re inclined to believe Siriano is working on a something much more “fabulous” than just a simple T-shirt. And we’ve got several months to speculate as to what it could be; an avant gard new look for employees? A haute couture cup? Or better yet, fierce new merchandise just in time for the holiday gift giving season?
What would you like to see Siriano sell at Starbucks?
