It was about time! JesseAitui Petion (Aitui) recently released a new collection, after too long a hiatus! Lets face it. If you want original and stylish casuals in sl, if you aren’t into “post cataclysmic” or other alternative looks, you really don’t have a lot of sources.
Some of the best casuals designers with a true creativity have been sucked in by this big money-machine company and work for it now (company especially tailored to provide to avatars in need of social recognition a lot of rl “copied” casuals, done with skills, without any creativity but at high prices, under a flattering name “inspired” by the name of a famous RL luxury Prêt à porter name). Emma Gilmour, I miss your coloring talent! Dakota Buck, I miss your style! Fortunately, JesseAitui and a few others are still here and their creative juice is still ready to express in their designs!
I’m showing you today an outfit done with two items of the masterpiece of that new Aitui collection: the Tokyo range. For this spring-summer look, I’m using capris and a short jacket and shirt combo. I will show you in a few weeks a fall-winter look built with the same range.
No need to tell you the items are perfectly designed. Jesse knows his work, and being the first one selling tats with no seams is the insurance of aligned textures and precise drawing of them. The “fabrics” are so well rendered that you can actually “feel” them. He offers his items in four dark color tones, from coal to brown. The jacket comes in two versions, with and without a long shirt underneath. They are offered with a matching sculpted collar coming in two attachment point options (not shown).
Like with other items with a personality, these pieces won’t please everyone. But you can’t deny the casual elegance they bring to an avatar. They give you a look halfway between what RL Japanse designers offer in terms of creativity and style, and the comfort and easygoing feel of casual classics. If you don’t feel like going formal or official and need to show style and originality, you definitely have to explore this new range, which offers many other great pieces I will show you as soon as possible!
I’m wearing Jesse’s items with my favorite hair of the season, Rabi by Little Heaven, the most well finished flip-flops ever, obviously sculpted, from Detour, and the last collection of men’s jewelry by Mhaijik Guillaume, always masculine and precious at the same time.
