Agmes makes jewelry that we can hang onto for future generations.
Living in a world run by fast fashion is exhausting. Constantly bombarded with advertising images of new stuff we must have, I often catch myself rolling my eyes when a brand announces their debut collection, but Agmes feels different. First, the lasting nature of well-made jewelry often helps new accessory brands feel instantly grounded (Sophie Buhai, J. Hannah and Charlotte Chesnais all come to mind). Secondly, Agmes understated imagery (shot by Dan McMahon) is particularly captivating and speaks to the sisters’ (Morgan and Jaclyn Solomon) understanding of brand cohesion (always helps). Like Alfred Stieglitz’s photos of Georgia O’Keefe, the lookbooks feel classic, quiet and intimate. And then, of course, their jewelry is beautiful: sculptural, special and considered. The shapes are the everyday pieces the woman with taste wants, like jewelry inherited from her grandmother. These are pieces we can all hang onto for future generations.
