The Sukhahuta sisters are the trio behind the label Sretsis (sisters spelled backwards, natch!). Matina, the youngest of the bunch, has been designated accessories-maker for Stresis since she was a junior at Parsons and launched her own line of jewelry Matina Amanita last year. We stumbled across her cocktail rings a couple of seasons ago--crazily gorgeous chunks of gold and silver moulded in the shape of her favorite global landmarks like the Bondi Beach ring, our pick of the season as featured in issue #52. Sometime between Bangkok fashion week and a recent sejour in Paris, this well-traveled fashion lady emailed me a sneak peek of next season's collection--The Totem collection-- quite literally a masterpiece of Transformer proportions. What starts out as a 10-ring homage to forest dwelling creatures ends up as one glittering totem pole of awesomeness, with each stunning piece staking perfectly atop the other. The new collection doesn't drop until next season, which gives us approximately six months to get our mani-game in check.
