The AGNESKOVACS’ sophisticated elegance is realised by the purity of shape, omitting all unnecessary details. This puritan luxury is immediately noticeable due to the innovative design details. The geometric lines are always matched with subtle colour tones suggesting moderation. Hence its aesthetics is timeless and yet modern. The easily recognizable character of these bags and accessories are determined by the balance of Scandinavian minimalism, French chic, Japanese precision of proportions and the richness of the Italian leather. The design process launches by inspiration coming from the urban surroundings, the modern design and natural structures that is ultimately embodied in stylish pieces crafted with great care.
The distinctive character of the bags is created by a technique which has been developed and constantly redesigned by Agnes; the bags are made of one single piece of leather by folding and bending then fixed by stitching that raises the value and the durability of the products. Only selected, high-quality Italian leathers are used to make the handbags and the accessories. The brand also constantly explores alternative natural materials of similar structure such as wool felt. The handcrafted, premium quality bags and accessories are produced in local workshops.
Agnes Kovacs has founded her brand while still studying at Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design responding to the interest manifested towards her bags. Her works since have been honoured several times in Hungary, she received the prize of the Best Newcomer Accessories at the Re-think/Re-button design competition of Central European Fashion Week in 2013 while in 2015 won the Kozma Lajos Scholarship. Her bags are also becoming more and more recognised internationally, they appeared in magazines such as Marie Claire Russia or L’Officiel Homme NL. For Agnes – who was born in the small native village of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy – passion for leather is a tradition brought from home as several generations worked with leather in her family. This legacy still defines her way of designing.
