Vagabond Shoemarkers enters clothing for first time

Jan 27, 2022

Sweden’s Vagabond has entered the apparel segment for the first time in its 25-year history. This month it has added a leather jacket to its line-up, based on its “vast experience in handling such a complex and multifaceted material such as leather”.


The Varberg-based business said the new women’s jacket stays “true to the Vagabond philosophy of creating high-quality pieces, always with sustainable quality and style in focus”. 

The garment has been manufactured in Portugal, as a “very limited” edition.

Called The Jacket, it’s “a piece full of the typical Vagabond DNA – timeless but still with that raw edge and oversized silhouette, made to be worn again and again”.

Founder and creative director Marie Nilsson Peterzén said: “When developing The Jacket, it was a given that we would work in leather. Since this is a material that we have been using for decades and eventually have become experts at, it felt like the natural step to create a leather jacket.”
