La Kaiser is the first brand to feature on Collective & Co, and is the brainchild of contemporary jewellery designer, Cindy Kaiser.
Born in Zimbabwe to Swiss parents, Kaiser went on to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Arts, specialising in Creative Jewellery & Metal Design at the University of Stellenbosch.
After graduating with her Honours, Kaiser went on to study fashion design at FIDM in Los Angeles, before returning to jewellery design and founding La Kaiser in 2010.
The La Kaiser brand is now based out of Chicago, Illinois, where it continues to gain traction as one of the brands to watch in the United States. Kaiser designs all pieces, and her jewellery retails across North America and Europe. She has designed for the likes of Madonna, Rhianna, Kelly Roland and the Black Eyed Peas.
With her roots in Africa, Kaiser is passionate about giving back where she can make a difference, citing the Animal Anti Cruelty Society as her charity of choice.
