Talk about haute coffee.

Starbucks has teamed up with hot clothing designer Alexander Wang for an $85 T-shirt that looks as though you've been splashed with hot java.

Along with the spilled design, the brand's logo appears in the tossed latte design.

Wang, the 27-year-old New York City-based designer created the unisex cotton knit T-shirt and logo for the Seattle-based coffee company's 40th anniversary.

"When Starbucks and the CFDA approached us with this project, the first thing we thought of is what everyone tries to avoid — spilled coffee on a T-shirt,” he said. "This turned into the design, hoping people would have fun with it."

The coffee chain is also selling other high-priced T-shirts to celebrate its anniversary: A coffee bean-colored shirt with a mocha splash design by designer Billy Reid as well as a faux bleach-splashed design by Sophie Theallet.

The T-shirts, as well as a significantly cheaper $25 version that also features the brand's sea siren icon, is available at Nordstrom, Starbucks locations and online.
