POPTART Lilliehook

Greetings and welcome to our summer edition of the new-look Fashion Directory. To celebrate the transformation we’ve invited none other than the illustrious Minnu Palen to our new cover. Thanks Minnu for a stunning image. But the changes don’t stop there, each page of the magazine has been meticulously redesigned by Graphic Dix and we hope that you like the fresh and innovative layout as much as we do. We are excited to announce that the list of designers who have confirmed participation in Modavia Fashion Week 2011 (8 -15 September), is ready for release and what a lineup it is.... We are planning 50 shows this year so it’s shaping up to be even bigger and better than last year’s iconic event. The full list of labels that will present their new autumn collections appears directly after this column. Look out for a detailed schedule which will be published towards the end of August. Bloggers and members of the press who would like to apply for inclusion in the media event please contact me directly. The summer season is well underway in-world with several fabulous collections making their debut. Amidst all the colourful options it is hard to single out any one design of particular note but a few of my personal favourites include the beautifully textured Cabaha dresses from Baiastice, LeLutka’s belted Safari and Soho shorts and

the cool and elegant blouses and chinos from Maitreya (featured in our COLLECTIONS section). The first millinery range from Bliss Couture is also worth mentioning. Apparently Amutey wasn’t sure that she could make hats.. well we’re happy to report that she definitely can.. We welcome no less than 3 new columnists to this edition: blackLiquid Tokyoska, who brings her exotic style and eye for detail to the Directory, Umberto Giano with his wealth of experience as a commentator on menswear in SL and James Schwarz, justly famous for his atmospheric images and unique look. They join Dahlia Joubert, Queen Watanabe, Galliano Boucher, July Raymaker and our newest stylist, Kayma India in creating some of the very best fashion editorial in Second Life. The featured artist this month is Radio Signals whose monochrome Scribble sim has delighted SL residents for some time. The sim has now sadly closed but her intricate and expressive art lives on in real life and we’re happy to say, in our pages. Have a great summer x

Say so long to this spring’s preppy geek chic and hello to the boys of summer. It’s a flash morph as we move into the more tailored lines of GQ style. Still trending are chinos for men. In Second Life, popular chinos can be found at Arai, and at Adjunct look for the slim fit style in a range of colors including kelly green for the more daring. Mon Tissu’s horizon twill trousers are an excellent option for rolled chinos while NSD has the top alternative for those who prefer to wear their pants unrolled with a break. Affirming the chino’s status as a summer essential, Naith Smit of NSD notes, “Chinos are what most people are using as a standard to base their look and style around. NSD chinos are designed to fit with most looks and are available in colors that reflect that. They are this summer’s day-today item you can use all the time.” So ditch those jeans and don of a pair of neutral chinos or tailored shorts paired with v-neck tops, polo shirts and light sweaters in eye-popping combinations of complimentary colors. Think yellow hues with blue, or brown topped by blues and violet. Get ready for the gingham, stripes and madras prints. They are sure to top the list of summer favorites - paired in subtle, varying scaled combinations or with contrasting solids, you can’t

go wrong. You are sure to be noticed in gingham shorts by Shiki, sold in brick, navy and olive. Top these with a navy blazer, neutral sweater, bright-colored pullover or a simple v-neck tee. Meticulous in his detail work, Shinichi Mathy of Shiki, ensures all his seams match up and is a master of color and texture, making his summer collection one of this season’s break-out hits. Not convinced that this is the right look for the yacht party? Try pairing your favorite basics with a blazer in classic navy or moody black. Teamed up with white or pastel hues and boat shoes - no socks, of course -- you will be a nautical sensation. Mon Tissu’s Rockaby blazer is a blog favorite at the moment and Redgrave’s El Ganso blazer is a chameleon that reads black or navy depending on what colors are styled with it. Both are perfect to church up your tailored shorts or rolled trousers without going too formal. The heat is on and men are losing those full beards and shaggy locks opting instead for a more stylish close-cropped cut. COLORS has an assortment of short hair for men like their 39A and 43 that are styled high for a clean look and cool feel. And if you aren’t afraid of wearing a female hair, Elikatira’s Escape hair can be modified and worn as a stylish pompadour. Accessories to remember: tortoise shell glasses and aviator shades; colored, white and braided

belts; shoes (without socks); ‘tough-looking’ rings and watches in stainless steel. 2g’s Bekkou tortoise shell shades are well-textured and easily modifiable to a more streamline shape. They are just the right touch to gentrify your look. However, LeLutka’s Circacia aviators are a more appropriate, classic option for men driven by testosterone. The aviator shade’s shape brings out the masculine lines and frame of a man’s face. Step outside of the box when shopping for jewelry and check out some unorthodox sources for accessories. 19 Motorcycle, a purveyor of motorcycles and biker attire, is a surprising source for tough looking jewelry for men: the chain bracelet and my favorite, the iron cross ring. Menno Ophelia’s shop of curiosities, Kari, offers some great looking accessories for men such as their triple strap watch and padlock watch. There is no shortage of choices this summer to look and feel cool - especially with some of the lesser known, unexpected design houses. Have fun with your styling and don’t forget some of those old favorites, like Artilleri’s Jed shirt, which are collecting dust in your inventory. They will strike the perfect balance with new purchases. You don’t have to break the bank to look good and stylish in Second Life. | FD | 217
