We think of them as the Rodarte sisters of jewelry — but a bit more hip. Like Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte, with their rare custom-made pieces that every truly chic woman on the planet has to have, sister-duo Mackenzie Burdick and Rachael Mann, founders of the relatively new label LITTER, have become so widely sought after that there is now a waiting period for their one-of-a-kind pieces.
The surprisingly affordable San Francisco based line is made up of playful, unique items that are totally irresistible. It’s the kind of stuff that, when you wear it, will have people stopping you to ask where it came from.
Designers Mackenzie and Rachael are their own best models for the line, with that sexy New York-California-hybrid look (relaxed yet sophisticated) that’s always so hip and influential (think of the Traina sisters, the Swanson sisters, Rachel Lena Esterline, Alexandra Tyndall, Pamela Skaist-Levy, Pamela Byers Donahue, etc..)
The pieces reflect the different styles of the two women — some of them are very sweet and feminine whereas others are a bit harsh — which creates a really exciting tension, and keeps the line full of surprises. Here are some of our favorites (these pieces and more, if still available, may be purchased at www.littersf.com and www.moxsie.com):
