When the Zebra Meets the Moth

If you look at enough RL catwalks online, you will see a lot of juxtaposition of styles as designers try to create an aesthetic frisson.

When the Zebra Meets the Moth

Applonia Criss has done this with her Spring collection, combining textures and styles to create a set of clothing that reflects tropical and natural themes, from rainforest to water to animals. It’s a great approach Applonia took, deciding to hone to a specific theme in designing her collection. I chose this from the set offered to me because I liked the contrast of the black and white zebra with the shimmering tropical print. The dress has a great system piece striped across the bodice with slit sleeves. The skirt could have been assembled with more care (I found a prim in a very odd spot and it bunches towards the front of the avatar), but I am guessing this was assembled in a manner so as to get the visual achieved on the front.

I show the dress with these amazing boots from Krystal Silverweb, suitable for men or women. I top it with a sleek haircut from Fhaya Denimore, both gamine and sexy.

Finally, I feature the new skin from Lorac Farella. Lorac is again testing her new equipment, this time coming out with a skin that is cleaner than her most recent have been. This skin is for the avatar who wants a more painterly look. There is no photosourcing—this is all hand drawn, a wearable piece of art from top to bottom. Set this artistry in motion by wearing it yourself.

The more, the more
The more that I appear
