    When it comes to fashion, there several things we commit to: a lifelong investment purchase, a go-to styling trick, or, simply, designer names and collections that you can't help but commit to memory. However, it's commitment to ethical practices that we most admire — and VPL is no stranger to the nobel deed.

    The label that has changed the way we think about underwear has announced its latest collaboration that will do the same for the way we think about handbags. Teaming with Fleabags — the purveyor of eco-friendly and ethically made carryalls — VPL will be releasing a collection of vegan-leather shoppers, backpacks, totes, and clutches for spring '13.

    Following closely behind the announcement of the brand's green nail-polish collab with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, VPL offers a way to slide your just-lacquered digits around the supple straps of these new designs and fully commit to style that's safer and kinder than ever before. Available in a mixture of soft lilacs and grays, as well as bolder tangerines and greens, the bags will be made available this spring. Preview all the good designs in the slides ahead.
