Designer Coffee Sleeves

In elementary school there was this enormous (or what seemed enormous at the time) trash compactor in the cafeteria that we had to dump our garbage into.  At the end of each lunch, a child inevitably tossed his or her lunch money, medication, or worse (and far more costly) – their retainer – and the compactor had to be shut down.  Moms and Dads had to come by the school to help sort through the trash, searching for the $3,000 mouth guard.  I threw caution to the wind and often lost my whole lunchbox (seriously – giant trash chomping machine here, people); eventually my mom got wise and she learned to brown-paper-bag-it.

Fast forward many many years, and a handful of my favorite luxury designers are creating couture substitutes for the coffee sleeve.  Take that, Starbucks!  I don’t care how much I spent (in my imaginary world where I buy things like couture coffee sleeves), I’d toss that sleeve right into the trash – cup, crocodile, and all.  Operator fail or fashion fail?  You tell me.

  1. hahahah!
    For the longest time my mom could not figure out where all our silver spoons were. Turns out my little brother was taking them to school everyday for lunch and throwing them away.

    Love the blue Hermes!

    Check of my first ever giveaway if you have the chance!


  2. Those are fun! There is literally no item that someone will not make a designer version of! Lol.

  3. Ha! Totally. Interesting product, is there user demand!? Couture coffee cozies LOL! Maybe a green effort, if the snakeskins are faux? I’m perplexed but intrigued!

    I agree, I’d probably accidentally toss my designer sleeve too. Or I would forget to pack it in my purse to have with me when I visited Starbucks.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. I’m so glad to have new readers visit.

  6. I am having a bit of difficulty accessing your site at the moment so I hope this has already been mentioned… but I can’t help but think of The Devil Wears Prada! how appropriate would these Hermes ones have been in the writing of that book! Love it!

    Love & Lollies… Jessa
