Fashion of the stars

- +

For fashion label Sretsis — which is “sisters” spelled backwards — profound spirituality and natural wonders have always been championed. The three sisters who founded the brand are known for their cheeky, ultra-feminine touch, and seem to genuinely believe in magical healing powers and supernatural connections to Earth. The “Children of the Stars” S/S 14 collection drives their faith in humanity and higher beings even further. 

The collection is inspired by the sisters’ Bali retreat, where a guru instructed them to concentrate on universal interconnectivity and energy flow from one organism to the next. Binding together under the same sky, Sretsis would like us to believe we are all related, since we are all children of the stars.

The collection heavily leans on astrology, especially its signs and symbols that have been expertly reinterpreted onto prints by premier illustrator and regular brand collaborator Terawat Teankaprasith. The main print is also named “Children of the Stars”, and uses astrologically correct star signs. But each symbol has been twisted — Scorpio, for example, doesn’t appear insectile, but rather as a noble lady with a long, flowing braid made to look like a scorpion’s tail.
