Outfit of the day, Furniture of the day: Sleek Funiture, Muism, JCS…

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Night | Saturday, April 5th, 2008

For a change, I used a prop for this post. A special prop: the re-creation by Hummer Corleone for Sleek Furniture of the “Living Tower” designed by Verner Panton in 1969. Living Tower is the epitome of furniture design in the early seventies. A total new way of sitting and lounging, in the most casual way you could imagine. The original piece is more than 78 inches wide and 78 inches high. Hummer recreated it in a slightly higher scale, but respected almost perfectly the complex form of this revolutionary 3D sofa.
It’s one of the pleasures of our favorite metaverse to be lucky to “live” with items that aren’t reachable, too expensive (RL living tower is sold for more than 12,000 USD) or not fitting our homes. More, here you can change totally your interior design every month for the price of a hamburger! All that is possible thanks to our talented builders and texturers.
You can get the Living Tower from Hummer Corleone for a mere 400 Lindens at Sleek Furniture @ SLeek (84,67,22).

I chose a silky shirt from Muism for my outfit of the day, with good details and many layers, allowing tucked and untucked wearing even with low-rise pants, thanks to the complement on the underpants layer. Like most of Muism items, this shirt is moddable. I wear it on vibrant orange pants by Emma Gilmour (talented designer and owner of Sand Shack Surf Co., here under the name of Hudsen Armidi). I love Emma’s work for men. She is one of the very few who think that men have the right to wear bright colors too! These low-rise chinos come in many colors, mostly more classic than the “Flame” I’m showing today. Sculpty pant cuffs are provided (not shown).

I chose also the great “Dublin” shoes by Eponymous Trenchmouth for JCS, my favorite hair of the moment, “Sensei” from Truth, super neat glasses from Primoptic, and uber cool retro-flowered headphones from Boon.
Enjoy the seventies flair!

  9. I love the layout of this post…that piece of furniture is so cool. I’d love to have something like that in real life, but I’d be tempted to try sleeping on the highest perch. Ha!
