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.

Spécial créateur : Robin Sojourner

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

I’m almost ashamed to have waited so long before showing you some of Robin Sojourner’s creations. Skilled, experienced and talented 3D artist, she does the best plaid shirts you can find in SL. Walking in her shop is like walking in a chidren’s book. She represents for me all the best of SL : sharing, poetry and creativity. She brings a lot to the community, including her tutorials and her famous templates for clothes used by so many designers.

I chose to show you today one of her very very good shirts and a pair of her jeans.

The plaid shirts come in many colors, each color costs 100 lindens, and for that price you get 4 untucked versions on the jacket layer (open, close, rolled sleeves or cuffed sleeves), 4 tucked versions (shirt and undershirt layer, rolled and cuffed), nothing less! Just because i’m very fussy, I would say I miss a complement of the tucked version on the underpant layer, to allow low-rise pants.

Textures, shadowing and seams are exceptionally done. Some of the designers new in world, including a so called “guru,” should learn from Robin, instead of being obsessed with their business…

The jeans come in many options and colors, with each single pair a low 50 Lindens. They are not low rise, well tailored, and I advise you to pick at least a pair of these normal-rise, high quality jeans; there are not so many in world!
