Coffee and Cats = perfect Starbucks combination

It seems Starbucks is not yet done toying with my emotions. After almost not surviving the pastel collection (thankfully M got me the pastel pink for our 4th month) here they now come with something I am almost sure to be unable to resist.

Our go-to coffeehouse is collaborating with French fashion house, Paul & Joe, to bring a touch of Parisian chic to our tropical shores. The merchandise features the fashion line’s founder Sophie Méchaly’s beloved pet cat Gipsy who’s sure to get you through even your laziest Monday mornings! Paul & Joe has always been known for its fun and vibrant aesthetic with a tinge of vintage and this partnership yields that same artistic movement into these delightful pieces. The collection includes a double-walled mug, a tumbler, a tote bag, a Starbucks Bearista dressed in Gipsy-inspired outfit, and a Starbucks card.

Since I am not overflowing with cash, here are the ones that I really, really want to get my hands on.

A double walled ceramic mug featuring Gipsy, the iconic Paul & Joe kitten sitting with his newly hatched chick friend in glossy full wrap decal. Its pastel green acrylic lid complements the clear glaze mug body. Comes in a collector box.

This limited-edition tumbler has a spill-proof double wall stainless steel body featuring the iconic Paul & Joe cat, Gipsy. Joining this feline is his cute newly hatched chick friend. A flip-style lid in pastel green color beautifully complements the blue color of the tumbler with Paul & Joe + Starbucks logo.

The other part of the collection is a tote bag and a bearista which I know my Mom will like but I'll need to pass for now. Heartbreak. 

Along with this overly endearing collection is the launch of Starbucks X, a platform where customers can participate in the journey of discovery through a series of clues that will reveal the next sought-after designer collaboration.  The Paul & Joe + Starbucks collection will be available starting today, May 15, at select Starbucks stores in the Philippines.
