P/A. Tell us about Anna Temple Links, how did the idea come about, the desire to launch your brand?
Nathalie Labarthe. 4 years ago, I co-founded the brand @aimelestore, an online concept store offering selections of handmade decorative objects, clothes, fashion accessories. Very quickly, I wanted to offer our customers jewelry that I wanted to wear myself, but had trouble finding. It was the Covid period, I had time and I started braiding and knotting beads, pendants, very quickly my clients loved it. Two years later, I wanted to formalize my brand Anna Temple Links and today, I am at the beginning of the adventure.
How would you describe your jewelry?
My jewelry looks like me, I like simplicity and authenticity. I like the idea that by looking at my wrist, I can travel, imagine myself elsewhere, that’s also why I’m inspired by destinations that make me happy just thinking about it. I am a big dreamer.
You are finalizing a capsule collection inspired by Greece. Tell us about this collection dedicated to the country.
I am very attracted by this culture, the colors, the light. It’s a rejuvenating and soothing country, conducive to meditation. It also inspires me with the precious moments with my family, my children, my friends, the beautiful memories that nourish us with happiness. So I imagined a capsule collection of simple and authentic jewelry, enamelled ceramic with raw shapes, shades of blue, flowers, all braided on golden cotton ties. The first Links of the collection is called HYDRA, I love to give names of places that I like to my jewels to better fantasize them.
