Nouveau chez / new at: “Hoorenbeek” & “SF Designs” & “Stellar Designs”

• New at SF Design: Knitted Jacket. They come in three colors: blue, my very favorite (shown), grey, and maroon. In each color pack, you get 2 versions of the jacket, with high collar or open collar, 2 sizes of prim collar to wear with the high collar jacket, sculpted cuffs. I noticed with pleasure that the sculpted addition perfectly fit the jacket layer, the prim work as well as the texture. Great job Swaffette Firefly!
You can pick your favorite color for 120 lindens. Like every item you can buy from good and fair makers, the knitted jacket is fully moddable.

Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack…): 3/5 - Price: 4/5 - Value for money: 5/5

• I show also brand new sneakers from Hoorenbeek. Those “All Stars” are another great sculpty work. I’m not sure sculpty shoes are such a breakthrough for dress shoes, knowing the level of perfection reached by some items from JCS for example, but I have to admit that, for casual and sporty shoes, sculpties are a bliss.

These sneakers come in four sizes per color, in ten colors. I personally find the difference between each size a bit too high. The “large” ones are especially big, and even tested with a very tall and big avatar, looked really big. On the other hand, I’m not sure the xsmall are small enough for the interested ladies or particularly small avatars.

These “All Stars” from Hoorenbeek are, for now, and in my humble opinion, the best “converse like” shoes on the grid. I just wish for some more subtle colors, those offered being a bit too basic for my taste. Some are really great though, like the white shown today, the camos (will be shown in a few days by Nuno McCullough), the sand, red and black ones. Perry Proudhon will show you some other colors in a few days, too.

Such good work has a price, and, at 480 lindens, they are certainly not given. Anyway, the guys from Hoorenbeek did a great job and the “All Stars” sneakers will probably be a hit, until the next talented competitors show off! As usual at Hoorenbeek, you can choose from copy-no transfer and no copy-transfer versions. It’s good to have a choice!

• I won’t forget to say a few words on the last jeans from Stellar Designs. These “Burnin Love Destroyed and Ink’d Jeans” bring a little something more in the universe of jeans we can find on the grid. They are torn, very used and show a hand drawn sketch on the right thigh. This way, Lexi Morgan succeeds in renewing a bit these old good jeans.
They come in four colors, from light to dark blue, plus silver, available for 130 Lindens for one color, 400 for all four. Copy-no transfer and obviously moddable.

  3. The “Monogrind” are not bad, not sure they are better than the “Hoorenbeek”, though.
    They are cheaper, good point, but the “dirty” finish keep them in the alternative gears category :-)
    I would be happy to show them though, if I had the occasion.
