THE CHAYKA COLLECTION
During 2020 SKUA Studio created the Chayka Collection, inspired by the Space Age woman. They were specifically drawn to the colors and form language used within this time. Every shoe has it’s own space age character.
The Chayka collection all started with Valentina Teresjkova, who was the first (Russian) woman who went to space. Her codename was Chayka, meaning seagull in russian, relating to the funfact that SKUA is also known as a type of seagull. This all came together in a strange but wonderful way. As Valentina was the first woman in space she really had to set a goal and go for it. No giving up, always keep your goal in sight! Dare to show who you are and what you have to offer. The Chayka collection will be the first handmade locally produced production of SKUA Studio.
