Starbucks has recruited a trio of American fashion designers to create a range of T-shirts for its 40th anniversary.

The designers - Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet and Billy Reid - were selected as past winners of the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund (CVFF), which gives away grants to new and emerging American fashion designers.

Wang's T-shirt is a fun play on the coffee stain, with a milky coffee splotch splattered across the right side that tapers into the Starbucks logo, Siren.

Theallet, who has worked for Jean Paul Gaultier, captured the brand's ubiquity with a stylized map of the world, while Reid, who hails from the South, used a worn, broken-in tee as his canvas and placed the Siren logo on the shoulder.

The limited edition shirts are available at select Nordstrom stores across the US for $85 (€61) and will be sold at the online store http://www.starbucksstore.com/.

Meanwhile, last month, Krispy Kreme in the UK launched two donuts - strawberry and orange glaze - for London Fashion Week, and French luxury tea house Ladurée debuted its newest macaron gift box designed by British designer Matthew Williamson.
