Starbucks Touch, Starbucks’ brand of wearables, is back in a new collaboration with fashion brand Beams with The Drip, a chic creation that makes buying coffee a snap.
While it looks and feels like a classic leather keychain, The Drip is a contactless IC card which allows coffee lovers to head out wallet-free to their local Starbucks. Based on the concept of wearable payment, the hybrid item combines the high technology of the Sony FeliCa chip with warm genuine leather carefully made with Japan’s leading craftsmanship. Strapped on your belt or attached to your keys, The Drip is the perfect accessory for your coffee-loving life.
Featuring drops of drip coffee as its motif, the latest Starbucks Touch wearable comes in five different colors, and can be purchased at Beam’s Harajuku, the following Starbucks stores, or on the Starbucks Online Store. The Drip goes for ¥3,000 (plus tax) and the minimum initial charge is ¥1,000.
Starbucks locations where The Drip can be purchased:
Omotesando, Kitasando, Yoyogi, Mejijingumae Metropia, Jingumae 6-Chome, Omotesando Jingumae 4-Chome, Tokyo Plaza
