We joined our forces with SAIJA which entered an exclusive partnership. Together we designed a brand new bag and shoe collection for male and female go-getters who are always on the go. Each model is handmade, limited and numbered to guarantee exclusivity.
''Products that makes you feel that someone has worked with a lot of love and attention on it."
The four-piece bag series consists of a backpack, document holder, clutch and shopper. To complement the cooperation we also designed matching shoes. Both bags and shoes are launched at COLLAB STORE in Rotterdam. The products are now available in our store and through the webshop.
The styles of the bags refer to earlier SAIJA collections and the Erasmus Bridge can be seen in the robust details of the collection. For us, the bridge is not only an icon but also a symbol of connection and big inspiration incorporated into our earlier collections.
''Symbol of connection and big inspiration''
Charissa Saija, founder of SAIJA STORE: "This is the first time that I'm working with a shoe label. I got inspired by their story and I notice that I am getting a lot of energy from converting ideas into fully functioning exclusive products. Products that make you feel that someone has worked with a lot of love and attention on it. "
Also, co-founder Wesley dos Santos of DIVERSITÉ FOOTWEAR is proud of the end result. "I believe in the power of connection because it shows that incidental meetings can lead to collaborations with an inspiring and innovative process as a result. We met each other by coincidence and in no-time we had a positive click. Our entrepreneurial journey and brand story are very similar. Moreover, we are all from Rotterdam and Saija's bags are fantastic. "
"From the moment we spoke to Charissa about the collaboration, I was fascinated by her drive and vision. What we have designed together are timeless products with a story that you want to wear forever, "says Adilson Araújo, co-founder of DIVERSITÉ FOOTWEAR.
