Starbucks' Pride 2023 Collection Includes Rare Metallic Tumblers and Iridescent Coffee Cups

May 12, 2023

The seasonal merchandise, which celebrates the start of Pride Month, is now in stores across the country.

If there's just one way to describe Starbucks' latest seasonal merchandise drop, it's glam glitter and show-stopping metallics. The chain's latest tumbler and coffee cup release has landed in most retail locations this week to the glee and cheer of diehard Starbucks fans, as this seasonal collection features design motifs that have seldom been used in recent collections.

Aimed at celebrating the start of Pride Month in the United States, Starbucks has partnered with Canada-based designer Tim Singleton to create stunning tumblers, water bottles and more in fabulous, vibrant motifs. The collection includes two Venti-sized (24oz) cold coffee tumblers that make use of an eye-popping color gradient rolled into groovy graphics that span the signature cup, starting at $19.95. It's all part of the work done by Starbucks' Artist Collaboration Program, the company says.

An additional Grande-sized (16oz) stainless steel tumbler (which can be used perfectly for water!) pays homage to Pride parades and other queer celebrations, according to Starbucks' press release.

There are upwards of three additional Singleton-designed pieces that are debuting at Target this week, with eagle-eyed social media users pointing out that some of the pieces landed in their local superstore earlier this month. These items continue to play up day-glow color schemes, vibrant designs and iridescent foils splayed out against Starbucks' signature acrylic tumblers, which fans simply can't get enough of.

There's also a wave of additional seasonal Summer 2023 merchandise that landed in stores this week alongside Starbucks' Pride capsule collection. These pieces include a two-tone pink grid cold cup in a Venti size (24oz), an ocean-blue spiral textured cold cup in a rare 18oz size, as well as a new Venti-sized floral soft touch tumbler in a similar blue shade.

While Starbucks has yet to confirm any additional launches, circulating social media posts indicate that even more themed merchandise may arrive in stores later this summer, including a third wave of merchandise in late June. That's all before the highly anticipated fall and Halloween merchandise drops, usually in August and September.

And if you're still on the hunt for the elusive limited-edition Starbucks x Stanley tumbler that was released earlier this month, be sure to visit Starbucks cafés within your nearest retailer ASAP. Rumor has it that some locations were restocked with this ultra-rare cup over the holiday weekend, making it an excellent time to take a peek at all of the new designs in your local store. Happy hunting!
