I cringe over the thought of paying $5 for a cup of coffee, so it’s no surprise that my mind is a little blown over the fact that they now make high end accessories for your already overpriced cup of jo. Not saying I don’t think all of the below designer coffee sleeves are pretty cute, but I just don’t see myself ever paying more than nothing (since they are free at Starbucks) for a zarf. Speaking of which, did you know that the formal name of a coffee sleeve is a zarf? Just a little fun fact for the day….
What do you guys think? Would you break the bank to dress up your latte? Personally, I would much rather make my own, and now that I think of it- I may very well do just that.
- At $180, Jimmy Choo’s crocodile leather sleeves are actually a steal compared to what you will see from Hermes. They also come in a variety of different finishes and colors.
- BCBG also came out with their own leather studded mug hugger, which retailed for $68…. before they all sold out.
- Hermes, as stated above, also hopped on the coffee sleeve train, and they definitely upped the ante by using real leather and charging people $250 a pop! If that’s not completely crazy, I don’t know what is!!
- You KNOW Starbucks had to get involved in this upcoming trend. They paired up with Rodarte to create a whole collection, which includes: mugs, bags, coffee sleeves, and even giftcards. The prices are much more wallet friendly starting at $6 (for a sleeve), but still…. I prefer the one they give you behind the counter for free-ninety nine.
