Nouveau chez / New release at: “Jeepers Creepers” and “Savvy?”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, June 30th, 2007

<> Eponymous Trenchmouth (Jeepers Creepers) just revamped her clogs. Yes, clogs can be cute, and hers are! They come in many finishes (white, brown, black, camo and a special “tech” version). They are sold for 300 Lindens a pair.

• What makes me happy: Left and right foot are designed differently (look at your sl shoes, it’s pretty rare! they are usually the same for both feet). That adds a big touch of realism. I’m happy to have an alternative to sandals. I love sandals, but the feet in sl don’t look so good… and like Epy said very cleverly herself “You cant wear boots at the beach or on the boardwalk.” Lol!

• What I wish: I won’t deprive myself to ask for more colors! :-)

<> New release at Savvy (Dakota Buck), with the unisexy “Lucas pants”, Dakota offers men short pants in four colors. They are sold for 90 Lindens each, and 300 for the fat pack.

• What makes me happy: the originality of the cut and the texture, the intense colors.

• What I wish: well, more, more, more versions! Shorter and a bit longer for example! :-)

Nouveau chez Casa del Shai / New release at Casa del Shai: Amorsolo Suit

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Dressy, Official | Friday, June 29th, 2007

Madame Delacroix spoils us these days! After the exceptional “Barong Tagalog”, these are the derivatives. Today, I chose to show you the Amorsolo suit. It comes with 2 ties and a Barong shirt, under an embroidered grey jacket with a flexi tail attachment. A matching pair of pants comes to finish the outfit.
“Amorsolo” is sold for 650 Lindens.

• What makes me happy: obviously, the style. The clever usage of the barong shirt for a more classic official outfit. The very actual flair of a real designer’s suit. Also the beautiful embroidered texture of the jacket, the modifiable shirt which allows you to give a little volume to the jacket’s sleeves (YAY! Thank you Shai Delacroix, to have considered my last wish!)

• What I wish: maybe a flexi tail easier to adjust, but I know that attachments are always especially tricky to adjust ;-)

Nouveau chez Savvy / New release at Savvy (Dakota Buck)

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Dressy | Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

The young and talented Dakota Buck just released her first men’s pieces! YAY! It’s always a pleasure to try first attempts (especially when they are without skulls and questionable stains :-D). I can’t wait to see what follows! :-)

“Robin” is a set composed of a shirt and a jacket, on many layers options. It comes in 4 colors.
Each color set is offered for 150 Lindens, the fat pack of all 4 colors for 500 Lindens.

• What makes me happy: the style, fun and fresh, the bright colors, the originality of the cut; the HUGE amount of variations on all the layers you can dream of, including lower parts on underpant layers to complete the always too short shirt layer, and combos shirt/jacket on the same layer, if you need free layers. You could really associate the Robin sets with other garment pieces quite easily (wear them under a coat for example). This is totally respectful of the customers, and way too rare!

• What I wish: more colors! and especially more subdued and classic tones, for a more versatile use of Robin; maybe a little better finish, especially the seams between the lower and upper part of the jacket.

My favorite color set is named “Silver,” shown on the main picture.

Nouveau chez Casa del Shai / New release at Casa del Shai: The Barong Tagalog

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Dressy, Formal, Official, Semi-Casual | Sunday, June 24th, 2007

A few words from Shai, found on her blog:
“Centuries of Spanish colonial period refined the distinct artistry of the Barong Tagalog, the Philippine National Costume for men. When the Spanish ruling dictated a demarcation against the lowly Indio, Filipinos were made to wear their shirts not tucked under the waistbands.

To add to that, Barongs were fashioned out of sheer fabric and with no pockets, appeasing the Spaniards’ fear that Filipinos are not out to attack them with hidden bolos and other weapons. As a result, the people focused their skills into defining their clothing as a symbol of resistance. Each shirt is handcrafted and embroidered with the distinctive piña cloth (fiber from pineapple leaves) or Jusi fabric made from abaca or banana silk. Despite its seeming flimsiness, the Barong Tagalog stood proudly against a revolutionary canvas of freedom uproars and rebellion.”

• What I like: A tribute to diversity and multiculturalism; As always, the style, so unique ; Many ways of wearing each color pack, and so many outfit combinations: sheer shirt alone (as shown on themain photo-composite), sheer shirt on undershirt (as shown on the second photo-composite), undershirt only, which is a cool henley. The black dress pants which come with each color pack are also totally versatile and could get along with many outfits.
• What i dislike: the “no-modify” top pieces, and especially those on the shirt layer, which avoid to fight the “tight-sleeves-syndrome” on jackets. Yes, I’m perfectly aware it’s my obsession of the moment :-)
• Each color set is offered for 500 Lindens.
