Ice dancing champion Meryl Davis is all set to launch her scarf collection along with Vera Bradley. The 28-year-old has teamed up with the luggage and handbag company to design a collection of colourful and lightweight scarves. For the two-time Olympic champion along with her ice dance partner Charlie White, it is her debut designing endeavour.

In 2014, Davis was chosen as the brand ambassador of Vera Bradley. “I got to know the people from the company and we realized we had a lot of the same ideas and outlook on design. I’ve been working with them for roughly a year now, and it’s an incredible company with an incredible attitude all around,” she said talking to People.

Her new line is known as the Meryl Davis Vera Bradley Rosewood Scarf Collection, according to Vera Bradley website. Her debut line consists of three pieces with bright and bold designs. There is a multi-colour floral scarf, which is her favourite, a pink-and-purple polka dot and a purple-and-pink pinecone. The ice dancer said that while creating the scarves, she kept in mind the fact that it could be worn in all seasons, adding that pink and purple were her favourite colours.

The “Dancing With The Stars” Season 18 star talked about working with Vera Bradley and her beauty routine on and off the ice. Davis said that for her moving from the role of the company’s brand ambassador to a creative role was a relatively easy transition. She has been a fan of the brand since she was a teen.

Davis ventured into designing, just over a year after winning the Mirrorball Trophy for DWTS along with her pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The brunette beauty said that since she has grown up in the Midwest, Vera Bradley was always familiar to her. The dancer recounted her memory of a particular bag which she took to her grandparents’ place, which brought back memories of her family trips.

Talking about her love for scarves, Davis said that she wears scarves and hats all-round the year. She added that sometimes since she trains for around 10 hours in the rink, she ties them in creative ways — around her neck, around her head and even around her waist. Her pieces are available at
