It’s a typical day on Twitter when you see people poking fun at things they can’t afford. The grapes are, indeed, sour.
This time, however, they’re bitter and sweet, thanks to a never-before-seen collaboration between ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee and renowned coffee brand Starbucks. You didn’t see it brewing, did you?
The announcement displays the legendary designer sipping coffee from a specially crafted cup with prints and the names ‘Sabyasachi + Starbucks.’
Does this imply that Sabyasachi will finally have at least one affordable item or is it gonna make unaffordable coffee way more unaffordable? Desi Twitter has got a lot to say:
Sabyasachi x Starbucks. Ab kya coffee bhi designer banegi? For 1000 bucks! https://t.co/g0dfu3uTZm— kushal (@kushchronicle21) April 6, 2022
How to make Starbucks more expensive – print Sabyasachi’s name also on their mugs 😂— vandana (@neipodiroast) April 7, 2022
The prints also look disappointing in this picture, I expected atleast Bengal tiger pics next to Starbucks lady symbol, not some phone cover marble print pic.twitter.com/jgjjUnPgAp

Handloom filtered cold brew????????
When I see people dressed in clothing from the Sabyasachi + H&M collab, I can’t not find it amusing. If this comes to SA, we might see body guards fighting over Sabya mugs at Starbucks 🤦🏽♀️ https://t.co/gxkxIRdV9F— Hasmita (@HasmitaAmtha) April 6, 2022
