To celebrate the recent release of Ready-to-Drink (RTD) Starbucks Pink Drink and Starbucks Paradise Drink, two new bottled beverages inspired by the beverages at Starbucks cafés, fashion designer, Brandon Blackwood, has created limited-edition sling bottle bags to carry the new beverages on-the-go. Blackwood took inspiration from the colors, flavors and textures of the beverages to design the accessory.   

Pink Drink first took social media by storm in 2016 as a beverage created by a fan, and it officially joined Starbucks’ menu in 2017 followed by Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverage last summer.  

The Brandon Blackwood x 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 açaí in Starbucks Pink Drink, and an ombre design inspired by pineapple and passionfruit flavors in Starbucks Paradise Drink.

“This is a dream collaboration for me,” says Blackwood. “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. I like giving people fun and bold ways to accessorize and individually express themselves and I like how these drinks were fan-inspired. Which is the reason why this collaboration with Starbucks and creating a bag for the new RTD Pink Drink and Starbucks Paradise Drink makes so much sense.”
