Nouveau chez / New at: “Dutch Touch” by Iki Ikarus

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual | Friday, October 12th, 2007

Some guys have asked me recently to show more “straight looks” on slmen.com. Well, I’m not really aware of what that means; it’s somewhat different from one culture to another. These demands were really surprising to me, as I try to show really various styles on the blog, but if more than one person asked the same, it must be for a reason. You can imagine that this is an utterly difficult exercise for me, being Gay and French! :-D

Anyway, thanks to Iki Ikarus, designer for Dutch Touch, I think I found exactly what these guys asked for! This very good camo outfit is totally mannish, don’t you think? The texture is very good and the cut done for action and all war roleplays.
The pants are moddable, so you will be able to make them more baggy, so perfect to be more “straight” in some countries, I was told. :-)

The gloves from Eiri McMillan add the touch of credibility you need to perfect the look, as well as the serious shoes by Jackal Ennui for Lassitude Ennui.

Fortunately, as it’s really masculine, the outfit is still sexy as hell, especially with the hair from Aemilia Case for Philotic Energy, very nicely designed, and the magnetic eyes from Zada Zenovka. All you need to make your avie very shaggable! Well, saying that, I just ruined all my efforts, I realize… sorry guys! ;-)

Nouveau Créateur / New designer: Adam Soler for “Lookr”

Ben Vanguard | - Tenue/Outfit, Automne-Hiver/Fall-Winter, Casual, Printemps-Eté / Spring-Summer | Sunday, October 7th, 2007

Adam Soler is a new designer in world. He has started with a few basics in many colors, and recently enlarged the range of his products under the brand “Lookr.”

They are a change compared to the usual stuff we could find these last months in sl, as they are mostly hand drawn (99%, Adam told me). Let me tell you that I don’t really care how items are created, and I will certainly not enter the polemic between photosourcing fanatics and hand drawn lovers. This is absolutely without interest in my humble opinion, and we can find the same creativity (or lack of it) in both ways of designing. But I’m forced to admit that nowadays a lot of designs include a good amount of photographic sources, and it’s becoming boring to me. Adam goes against the trend and makes us rediscover the freshness and originality of handdrawn items, and it’s good for the diversity of SL creations!

Today I’m showing you three outfits put together with items from his collection. It’s a breakthrough after so many more or less photosourced items, but after a while the charm is obvious. You can appreciate the subtle colors and poetic details on the outfits shown. The garments are nicely designed, the graphic inspiration is very thoughtful, including Christian messages on some items.

The prices are low, count 60 Lindens for a pair of pants or a shirt/jacket/tee, 100 Lindens for a pack including top and pants, 150 for a pack including 2 tops and 2 pairs of pants; the pack of 5 rings is at 50 Lindens, the 6 dogtags too. The hoodies, with sculpted prim attachments, are sold for 100 Lindens. All the tops come in both jacket layer and shirt/underpant layers, all is “Modify” for a perfect fitting and “Copy No-Transfer.”

For sure, some of Adam’s items for “Lookr” in your inventory could be a breath of fresh air in your wardrobe! Go take a look at his underwater shop and grab at least the free T-Shirt he offers. And bring your lady friend with you, there are girl’s things too!
