Nouveau Chez / New at: “MUWU” and “Style Starts Here”

Perry Proudhon | Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Punky | Friday, August 15th, 2008

MUWU’s new “Taste of Harajuku” set comes in five colors: red, black, purple, blue and pink. The pants come in versions with and without zips. I chose the version with zips to show here. The main fabric of the pants is nice, a punk plaid, but the zippers are blurry. The main idea gets across, and the effect is good, but I tend to like clearer textures.

The jacket, on both shirt and jacket layers, features sculpty attachments: fur cuffs (’bracers’) and sculpty sleeves which seem a bit redundant (not shown here). I have to say, the fur texture is beautiful, very soft in appearance, almost tactile. The shading on the jacket is nice, especially around the top of the front, where the fabric is visibly ’stretched.’ It almost has a lycra look and feel to it, which is a little different than the wool appearance of the back of the jacket.

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

These new stomper engineer boots from Style Starts Here are nicely hand drawn, with good detail and texture. They’re not comically large like some stompers, and are able to be easily resized by script (I love this option, and am glad people are using it more).

Rounding off this outfit, the Bon75 hair from boon in jet black.
