Vlieger & Vandam – rocking the cool and chic
The highly original and innovative fashion accessory brand Vlieger & Vandam (pronounced as flee-ger & Van-dam) was established in 2004 by 2 Dutch design couple Carolien Vlieger and Hein van Dam. Known for their use of unusual techniques combined with fine craftsmanship and luxury materials, Vlieger & Vandam have developed a unique process for embossing their now famous three-dimensional shapes into different leather designs. Their benchmark ‘Guardian Angel’ bag (as seen below) is the epitome of their distinctive expertise.
Born in 2002 The Guardian Angel bag is an instant media hit and in 2005 the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art in New York) includes it in their ‘Safe Design Takes On Risk’ exhibition. Vlieger & Vandam bags are exhibited worldwide! International stars Rihanna and Rita Ora are fans of Vlieger & Vandam bags too!
I couldn’t resist and bought myself a classic too! This bag is so gorgeous you’ll be sure to leave an impression everywhere you go. Bang!
For Spring-Summer 2013, the Guardian Angel series is released in three timeless colors: warm sand, a classic brown and fashionable dark green. But if you want to give your outfit a color accent, choose shocking pink or bright orange.
I am eyeing the hot pink studded sling bag but have decided to get the plain unisex bag in embossed handcuffs design. This bag has enough space for a 13 inch laptop and if you removed the shoulder strap, you can also use it as an oversized clutch! I’ll come back one day and take you home Hot Pink, wait for me.
