As Tanabata approaches, Converse Japan has teamed with Starbucks Reserve Roastery to release festival-inspired items. Tanabata is a Japanese festival that celebrates the legend of two lovers, Orihime and Hikoboshi, who can only meet on July 7 of every year through the starry sky.
Spanning from kitchen goods, outerwear and accessories, the collaboration includes coffee mugs, glasses, vases, bucket bags, bandanas, T-shirts and earrings – all with starry motifs as both Starbucks and Converse have stars in their logos. Dressed in a glossy milk color, the Converse-shaped vase mimics the glow of the milky way while dual branding arrives on the tongue and midsole. The collaboration also comes with accessories like the two-way earrings where you can either wear them on its starry side or on its copper-ball stud side. One noteworthy item is the galaxy-esque T-shirts offered in light blue and black where the logos of the companies are transformed into the stars representing Orihime and Hikoboshi.
Priced between $23 and $119 USD, the Converse Japan x Starbucks collection is now available at Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo.
