The Jewelry Line Every Design Lover Should Be Wearing Now
We get a ton of pitches from jewelry designers who draw inspiration from architecture — there was a time last year when we had to sigh every time we saw yet another collection based on simple structured geometries. Not that they were bad — just that we rarely felt they transcended a mere aesthetic exercise into the realm of the truly, truly chic. But AGMES, the brand new line by New York designer Morgan Solomon, is a pretty exciting exception: Not only does Solomon name-check the likes of Cini Boeri and Bertrand Goldberg when talking about her inspirations, but her pieces have such a strong, sculptural presence that you could picture passing them on to your children someday. (The fact that she’s managed to sneak a High Gloss teapot into her lookbook shoot doesn’t hurt, either.) Solomon spent her childhood sketching imaginary jewelry after taking a class at summer camp, but ended up going to business school and working as a fashion buyer before deciding to jump ship last year and return to her formative love.
