Sneak Peek: Fall 2018
VB Originals Collection

Our history defines us and continues to inspire us even 36 years after our first bag was made. We know our fans love a good throwback, which is why we’re bringing back a few fan-favorite patterns of the past for a limited time. VB Originals, a limited-edition collection first introduced last spring with the return of favorites including Java Blue, is back again this fall with three oldies-but-goodies.


Arriving online and in stores on Thursday, September 13, Piccadilly Plum, Animal Kingdom and Nantucket Navy are just as fresh and on-trend today as when they were first released. Offered in classic styles, like our All in One Crossbody, Triple Zip Hipster, and a more recent favorite, the Carson Shoulder Bag, these patterns will fit perfectly into your fall wardrobe. This limited edition assortment won’t last for long, so you won’t want to wait!


piccadilly plum

In luxe jewel tones formed into intricate twirling paisleys, Piccadilly Plum is the perfect pattern for fall. This free-flowing paisley will look just as cute with a sweater dress and over the knee boots as it will with jeans and a cozy turtleneck. We’d say this is a must for any fall lover’s wardrobe.

animal kingdom

If the song, Africa, by Toto was embodied into a pattern, Animal Kingdom would be that pattern. All right, we kid, but Animal Kingdom does have some serious safari vibes with an entire zoo of animals frolicking along. In lush shades of blue and green, this bold pattern still manages to feel neutral enough to work across your different fall looks.

nantucket navy

Can we just all agree that navy is a neutral? Nantucket Navy is what we call a no-print print — a pattern that subtle enough to go with everything, but has just enough personality to still feel special. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an outfit that this pattern doesn’t go with, making it universal year-round.

    Yay! Had Nantucket Navy in On the Go years ago! My first pattern! Went to the Midwest on a trip with me and also to Philadelphia. I’m in Ca. Will these have the original patterned lining or the black?

    I am madly in love with Animal Kingdom. I bless the rains down in Africa, and I bless Vera Bradley for bringing back this delight!

    I visited the Vera Bradley store in Columbia, md to purchase the Carson bag in animal kingdom. I was told they only received 1 bag in that pattern and didn’t know when or if they would receive more. Why would you advertise and only send one of these bags. Very disappointed in Vera Bradley!!
