In what may possible be the fashion world's most obvious -- yet previously unparalleled -- collaboration, some of the biggest names in fashion have teamed up with coffee giant Starbucks for the CFDA Designers for Starbucks collection.

Alexander Wang, Billy Reid and Sophie Theallet have each designed a unique t-shirt that features the Starbucks logo incorporated in some way.

Alexander Wang created a white t-shirt covered in what looks like a coffee stain, while Sophie Theallet channeled Starbucks' constant philanthropic nature with images of the continents adorning the shirt. Finally, Billy Reid went the simple route and added a subtle splatter of coffee on one shoulder of the shirt.

The CFDA Designers for Starbucks collection seems to be a long time coming, with the fusion of Starbucks and fashion a popular one, especially with the prominence of street style blogs that constantly feature photos of fashion's biggest names with a BlackBerry in one hand and a cup of Starbucks in the other.
