Biden and Harris Tap Top Fashion Designers Like Tory Burch and Vera Wang for Their 2020 Merch
Each piece was union-made in the U.S.
The official merchandise for the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris 2020 campaign is here and it's, well...capital "F" fashion. The democratic candidates for President and Vice President tapped top American fashion designers to create styles that include hats, jewelry, totes, and, of course, T-shirts. According to the campaign, the collection was also made entirely by union workers in the U.S.
Those looking to show support will now be able to choose from designs created by Joseph Altuzarra, Thom Browne, Tory Burch, Jonathan Cohen, Carly Cushnie, Kathryn and Lizzie Fortunato, Victor Glemaud, Prabal Gurung, Gabriela Hearst, Lazaro Hernandez, and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler, Brett Heyman of Edie Parker, Aurora James of Brother Vellies, Thakoon Panichgul, Monique Péan, Joe Perez, Vera Wang, and Jason Wu.
Most of the pieces from the "Believe in Better" collection cost between $20 - $60, and sizes range from small to 3XL. The styles are also relatively diverse, including classic pins and sweatshirts but also bolder tie-dye tops and bucket hats.
“I am thrilled to be supporting the Biden-Harris ticket," Lizzie Fortunato said in an email via the campaign to InStyle. "As a native of Wilmington, Delaware (Uncle Joe’s hometown!) and a small business owner who’s passionate about social justice, our environment, and the success of other independent businesses, I am eager to see leaders with integrity and compassion who will champion these issues enter the White House. And to contribute to this campaign with our Joe Charm Necklace is such an honor!"
"With my bucket hat design, I want to appeal to a younger voter," Victor Glemaud added. "Engaged voter turnout is critical for a Biden/Harris win that embodies the diverse spirit of America."
In the past, Donald Trump has launched attacks on Biden, claiming on his website that Biden will send jobs overseas, citing things like his vote on the North American Free Trade Agreement. This new union-made in the U.S. collection seems to be a subtle response to those claims.
