Vera Bradley joins forces with Sword & Plough for Veterans Day capsule
today Nov 12, 2019
American bag and accessories brands Vera Bradley and Sword & Plough have teamed up for a limited-edition mini-collection commemorating the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day.
The two-piece collection fuses Vera Bradley’s colorful patterned stylings with veteran-owned Sword & Plough’s military-inspired look for a contrasting aesthetic and features a backpack and a zippered pouch.
The backpack pairs Sword & Plough’s signature olive green in durable cotton canvas and military surplus twill with an interior and exterior trim in “Java Navy”, a recolor of Vera Bradley’s best-selling “Java Blue” floral print. The zippered pouch features a Java Navy cotton exterior and a cotton canvas interior.
Both of the items are U.S.-made and support Sword & Plough’s work with U.S. veteran-owned manufacturers. The backpack is priced at $165, the pouch at $55.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Sword & Plough, a company we greatly admire, both for its mission and for its fantastic products,” commented Vera Bradley CEO Rob Wallstrom in a release. “I know Vera Bradley and Sword & Plough fans will love both the backpack and zippered pouch – they are a great combination of fashion, function, and fun.”
The creative partnership is the latest in a diverse range of collaborations undertaken by Vera Bradley in recent months with brands including Starbucks Asia, Gillette and Crocs.
As part of its latest collaboration, Vera Bradley has also pledged a $10,000 donation to The Mission Continues Women Veterans Leadership Summit, a national initiative seeking to empower female veterans to lead efforts towards community change and equality.
The Vera Bradley x Sword & Plough collection is available exclusively on the brands’ e-commerce websites.
