Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, July 5th, 2008

AIR Winx and rika Oyen are the two designers behind “Argrace.” They create cool stuff, and their last products are especially nicely done. I ‘m showing today “Holiday Surfer” by Air Winx and Baseball Cap with hair by rika Oyen.

Holiday surfer is a cool double shirt and tee-shirt combo. Each of the 8 available colors comes with 2 jacket layers (untucked, regular and with undershirt), a shortylayer and its underpants complement a tucked look fitting every pant’s cut, 2 presized collars, 2 presized pairs of cuffs. Everything is moddable and transfer. AIR offers 5 camo colors (1000 Lindens for a fat pack), and 3 regular colors (600 Lindens for a fat pack), each indivual color is sold for 250 Lindens.

“Baseball cap” comes in two versions, with shaggy hair and with curly hair. 6 hair colors are available. Caps pattern, color and size are moddable by menu. You can pick your favorite hair color for 250 lindens, or get them all in a fat pack for 1200 Lindens. Like every Argrace product, these baseball caps are transfer.

Also showing: Mhaiik Guillaume’s ring, Adam n Eve’s last skin, FNKY! sneakers, and very nice striped pants from Muism!

Enjoy!

Outfit of the day

Nuno McCullough | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Saturday, March 29th, 2008

Having bought my new motorcycle, I just needed to get the outfit, so I simply took out of my wardrobe my Argrace jeans and paired them with this nice 79 Cycle Jacket from Form which reminds me the movies from the 70s, and my strong-all-the-road Patagonia boots from Hoorenbeek. Today’s accessories are Inone’s Native necklace and Mhaijik’s Minimal in Montreal ring (a pack that includes 3 different rings)

Being ready, lets go for a ride…

I’ve seen and worn other beanies with hair on SL, but this is my favorite by far. I like the wispiness of the hair and the texture of the cap is perfect. I love the little Argrace tag! You can get the hair in different colors, as well as short and medium lengths (I’m showing medium length hair in black here). You change the color of the cap by clicking it and choosing your color from the menu that appears.

Here’s the lighter version of the tweed coat from Unknown I showed a month or so ago. Worn with the wine shirt underneath. Also from Unknown, the side line pants, dark with the dark stripe. Finishing off the outfit, the new Dublin shoes from JCS, in black.

Nuno McCullough | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Dressy | Monday, March 3rd, 2008

I’m wearing today a new release from Argrace: Leather Jacket Casual. It shows a good photo sourced texture that gives us the feeling of wearing RL leather. Leather Jacket Casual provides four different options: jacket alone, with blue tee-shirt, with checkered shirt and with open dark shirt; this last option should be done with a different color since we can hardly see the chosen one. This pack is good quality stuff, I wish a bit more of work on the collar, though! 300 Lindens, Moddable and Transferable.

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

This new down jacket from Argrace is a good example of photosourced clothing on SL. Sometimes the realism of photosourced clothing against the never as realistic avatar is a little jarring to me. Still, this jacket is well done, with good colors. I show all the color choices here except the Cloudy Gray (which looks like silver lame to me).
Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 3.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 2/5 - Price: 2/5 - Value for money: 2.5/5

Also new from Argrace is this “casket” — a knit cap with hair of which the cap is scripted to change color. (You know, I googled ‘casket’ for a definition and images, and could find nothing related to a cap. But…Argrace calls it a casket, so I’ll call it that, too.) You can change the cap color by clicking and holding for a moment or two (not really clear…Ben had to explain it to me). I do like this cap a lot, as well as the hair. I give it a 5 out of 5 for style and originality because I really haven’t seen anything like it on SL before.
Quality: 4.5/5 - Style-Originality: 5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): NA - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 3.5/5

I rounded out this outfit with the scripted changeable multi-scarf from FNKY!, Hoorenbeek’s All Stars, a pair of black jeans I’d picked up at Argrace this past Christmas, and a selection of jewelry from Mhaijik Guillaume.

Oh! A quick word about the pack of Bright Eyes at Flesh Peddlers. An amazing value, for 75 Lindens, you can choose from 28 colors of eyes, three sizes are provided in each color pack. Shown here in taffy.

Nouveau chez / New at “Argrace”, plus “Akeyo”, “Color Me Couture”, “The Good Life”, “Zada”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Friday, December 21st, 2007

Well, I swear it’s not an obsession, I’m showing today some more Japanese creations!
AIR Winx for “Argrace” offers us these brand new interesting hoodies plus complementary down jacket in two packs, “Black” and “Gray&White”, each including a tucked (shirt layer and underpants layer) and untucked version (jacket layer) of the hoodie, two presized hoods, and two versions of the down jacket on the jacket layer, alone and including the hoodie under it.
Everything is moddable and no copy-transfer. You will see on the second composite the many possibilities you have with each pack.
The jeans shown are a freebie you can get in the shop, with a cap and a sweater!
Soon more stuff from this promising designer!

To go along with this hoodie and jacket, I chose the very good “Akeyo” Sneakers from Arto Magneto and Akemi Yoshikawa, in their colored version this time, and some cool hair from Tag Mulligan for “Color Me Couture.” Enjoy!
