Tenue du jour / Outfit of the Day: Sith Lord

Hoods are comforting, I think. There’s something very reassuring about pulling up a cowl or some fabric around your ears and over your head. Some years back, I came across a design book which featured what clothing might look like in the near future, say 10 or 20 years down the line. Quite a number of the designs had hoods in them, in one form or another. It’s not hard to see why - we live, after all, in an age of increased uncertainty - whether it’s about the world’s weather or water levels or air safety. And, of course, there was *that* white hood, in the music video of Kylie’s ‘Can’t Get You Outta My Head’.

With this outfit, I’ve tried to do some sartorial crystal ball-gazing of my own. The hoodie’s from Defectiva, a shop by Disembodied Hand that stocks his t-shirts and skins. It’s a well-shaded hoodie with a nod to Star Wars (the emblem on the front is the insignia of the Empire, and there’s a stormtrooper-and-crossbones on the back). What makes it stand out from most, however, is Disembodied’s thoughtful inclusion of follicles - if only more designers would include hair options with their hats and caps! The pack includes a hood with hair, as well as hood and hair as separate pieces, which maximises its customizability.

I’ve accessoried with various items from 3 cyberpunk stores - the watch and eyes are from Juliet Ceres’ Bitter Thorns; the boots (’GongFo MoonBoots’ - how can you not love a name like that?), utility leg strap and lip piercing are from Mantis Oh’s Hybrid Productions, and the belt is from Neaky Larsson’s Paradox line. All 3 designers produce excellent work - Juliet’s Cybereyes, the items from Hybrid Productions and Neaky’s belt all come with animated textures - the MoonBoots, for instance, have a very subtle energy band effect under the top cuff. Mantis Oh’s mainstore is quite a visual treat in itself, too!

Speaking of visual treats, the outfit was shot against the backdrop of Nebulosus Severine’s ‘Null’ artwork, over at Arthole (a collaborative exhibition space shared by Nebulosus and Arahan Claveau.) Brilliant, thought-provoking art to be found there.

Tenue du Jour / Outfit of the Day : “Maitreya”, “Slanted Fox”…

Perry Proudhon | - Every Day Outfits, - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Friday, December 28th, 2007

Riki Yifu’s Winter Wage outfit comes with the pictured jacket, wash fade jeans, gloves, sculpty cuffs for both the jacket and the jeans, and a collar for the jacket. When wearing the sculpty jacket cuffs, it helps to adjust the texture, changing the horizontal (U) Repeats Per Face to 1.2, from the default 3.0. The texture matches up better with the texture on the sleeves then. Priced at 205L, it’s a reasonable amount of money for what you get.

Also shown are Onyx LeShelle’s Maitreya Man Desert Boots (in mud).

Nouveau chez / New releases at: “SF Design” by swaffette Firefly and “Jeepers Creepers” by Eponymous Trenchmouth

Perry Proudhon | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Dressy, Night, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

Swaffette Firefly’s new Patterned White Shirts come in three different patterns: Tribal, Oriental and Coat of Arms. Each shirt comes in an untucked jacket and tucked shirt version. Also included is a free flexi tie. Each shirt is decorated front and back, nicely detailed drawings with excellent fold, button and tag details.

These shirts pair nicely with Aitui’s new Reborn slacks, shown here in Hidden Forest. The relaxed fit and soft wool texture make these pants truly unique in SL.

Eponymous Trenchmouth continues to impress with beautifully done men’s shoes, this time the Scratch series, shown here in black canvas. Amazing detail, particularly in the flexi laces and the metal-accented soles. Great shoes for wearing with dressy or more casual pants.
