Gertie Vos, Visual Branding:

“Summum Woman komt tot leven in inspirerende magazines, geweldige fotografie, lekker webdesign en verleidelijke social media. Het is de beleving van het merk.”

Marieke Tiel, Designer:

“We guard the Summum Woman handwriting not only by our designs, but also when choosing our color cards.”

Ilja van Hoeve, Head of production:

“Every design needs to be translated from a hand drawn sketch into a wearable and comfortable piece of clothing.”

Jorien Wijker, Creative Director:

“Every item will pass me and only if I would wear a piece with great pleasure, will it end up in the collection.”

Maurits van Lier, Marketing manager:

“We still are very proud when we see our clothing in the magazines and on television. Not only in the Netherlands, but certainly also in other countries in Europe.”


The cool Amsterdam look with international appeal: a clear vision has positioned Summum Woman firmly on the European fashion market. When Jos and Jorien Wijker started the Amsterdam fashion label in 1998, they had strong conviction and focus: they would beat their own path in the fashion world. And that’s exactly what Summum Woman does!


Summum has experienced impressive growth every year since it was set up in 1998. A secret formula? Yes and no. Summum is adept at subtly translating its Dutch character into international trends, thereby addressing the ‘woman of the world’. The modern woman who knows what she wants and how to make active choices. Naturally, a woman with a lot of style. The Summum collection - now complete with jewellery, jackets, scarves and other accessories - represents a total lifestyle choice for this woman.

Summum is also increasing its distribution outlets. There are currently 700 selling points worldwide. Full-on expansion, but one thing remains unchanged: the Summum stylists continue to do their own thing. From day one, Summum has combined diverse styles, fabrics and colours and this daring fusion forms the label’s DNA: cool with a romantic twist, sweet with an edgy finish. But always with a recognisable signature. Top to toe femininity and - not to be ignored - the Dutch Touch. This is the success formula for Summum Woman.
