About the brand
AMANDA PEARL is a New York based artisanal accessories collection that offers striking, sculptural, modern jewelry and meticulously handmade-in-Italy evening bags. Inspired by the resolute perfection of geometry and the beautiful imperfection of the organic form, AMANDA PEARL’s designs are imbued with her distinct sense of modern luxury.
Founded and designed by Seattle born and bred Amanda Pearl Brotman, the collection is inspired by her Pacific Northwest roots, with nods to the shaping influences that she continues to reference – nature, science, music, and the visual and performing arts.
Amanda’s evening bag designs are framed by crisp geometry that gives way to sumptuous choices in materials – whether hand painted satins or luxe embossed leathers – creating a sharp glamour that has become a favorite of inspiring women of influence from the worlds of art, film and beyond. Her bags have been seen on the likes of Lupita Nyong’o, Carrie Brownstein and Chloë Sevigny, in publications such as Vogue, Bazaar, InStyle and WWD, and awarded the Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for Accessories.
Brotman’s relaunch of the AMANDA PEARL brand brings the addition of luxury jewelry – pieces with the same modern glamour as her evening bags, but that can be taken into the day, as elegant armor, sophisticated talismans – pieces that mix into a woman’s jewelry collection and reiterate her individuality.
