Vlieger & Vandam是來自荷蘭鹿特丹的獨立設計品牌，由Hein Van Dam與Carolien Vlieger兩人於2004年正式成立。該品牌特別之處在於運用早期生產紳士帽的製帽技術開發的3D壓模，而設計出讓該品牌一舉成名的【武裝天使】系列。該系列必須利用模具在高度精準的製程和完美的時機才能讓成品有完美的立體浮雕，壓出沒有絲毫誤差的立體刀、槍、手銬等形狀。
Vlieger & Vandam於2006年時受邀參加當代美術館MOMA的 ”safe, Design Takes On Risk”，而其手槍包被MOMA列為永久收藏品。
每一款Vlieger & Vandam的手拿包皆是在荷蘭製作完成，並需要至少3個月的製程，如此用心的品質使他成為許多時尚部落客及時尚雜誌的寵兒。
The story behind new generation luxury label VLIEGER & VANDAM is a story about interdisciplinary design, about the relation between art and fashion, and about innovative craftsmanship.
Carolien Vlieger and Hein van Dam, trained as graphic designer and industrial designer, respectively, started the VLIEGER & VANDAM label in 2004 in response to the overwhelming success of their collaboration in 2002. This collaboration named ‘The Guardian Angel Handbag’ was a comment from both designers on all the media attention to street violence in the city of Rotterdam, the place where they had just settled. Those early Guardian Angels were assembled with parts from second hand handbags and new brightly coloured felt embossed with a distinct profile of a large kitchen knife or handgun. A handbag turned out to be the perfect vehicle for an international widely felt and far from salon fähig sentiment. In 2005 the Guardian Angel Handbags were featured in the exhibition SAFE: Design Takes on Risk at MoMA in New York, where they have been part of the collection ever since.
Fashion statement or functional objet d’art, the Guardian Angel Handbags – by now translated into a vast number of styles for men and women and made in the most luxurious leather qualities in stead of felt – are a genuine design classic. They have been spotted on the arms of stars like Rihanna and Rita Ora as well as architects and fellow designers such as Zaha Hadid and Fabio Novembre, and they are featured in numerous exhibitions and design collections.
