The Venus pendant was inspired in one of the oldest prehistoric sculptures, the sculpture of Venus by Willendorf, which dates back to approximately 30,000 BC. Due to the size and fullness rounded shape, it is suggested that this sculpture was actually an amulet for fertility that has the power to give birth. This figure is incorporated into the collection as a question to the current beauty canons. Although charming, the form is distinctly divergent from the understanding of the current beautiful female body. Thus, this jewelry aims to familiarize our look to a new aesthetic and question this cultural concept.

The 5th Collection was conceived in a moment of individual, social, and environmental revaluation. As we are Isolated, we had to rethink ourselves as individuals and as a society. The internal anxiety, previously dormant by the daily frenzy, is currently latent and no longer is satisfied with the same old thing. Same patterns, same attitudes and the same social paradigms. In this scenario, POES also goes through its own questions. After all, what really matters? How to inspire and stay inspired? The answer lies in the dilemma itself:beauty.
Therefore, “Omorphia” – μορφιά,beauty in Greek, is the starting point of the collection.
Beauty, for the brand, is understood not only by the aesthetical perception. It goes further. Beauty is a fundamental value capable of making individual transcend the individual’s self to reach the collective, such as a beautiful landscape that brings the sense of belonging and immensity. Beauty is essential to overcome difficulties and rekindle values.
In Ancient Greece it was said that was only possible to create something truly beautiful by the bless of the muses.
In this collection, beauty comes as the gift of the nine muses of the arts of Greek mythology. They are the inspiration of our pieces and they shall inspire those who wear them. We wish that you not only drink water but also fill the grail, likewise our creative process for this collection.
As the moment calls, the aesthetics of the pieces also undergo a disruption. The feminine beauty is a canon that changes according to the historical period. This phenomenon is seen mainly in the representation of the ideal female beauty in art. Studies of these different periods of art attempting to understand this cultural phenomenon and question it borrowed new forms and ways of seeing the ideal of female beauty. This new way is brought to contemporary jewelry bringing beauty a new look.
We hope that the pieces bring beauty and inspire the beautiful.
μπορεί η ομορφιά να είναι μαζί σου – may the beauty be with you.
