Lapointe & Bastchild at Fashion for Life

18 03 2011

The love story of Paul Lapointe and BastChild Lotus is almost as romantic as their clothing. Married last fall in real life, the two originally met in SL and reached around the world to be with each other. Their love and romance imbues everything they create—you can go from dark gothic to sexy casual to pure beautiful to tall, dark and handsome when you shop at L&B, all with their cojoined style.

Dark gothic is Lapointe & Bastchild’s bread and butter. Somehow the energy created between the two individuals brings out a dark romantic vision that is deliciously intriguing and sexy. Paul and BastChild agreed the New Orleans-influenced Irving Penn sim, built by Syngen Sohmers, was an ideal home for their store. New Orleans holds many fond memories for the newlyweds.

Both creators have honed their skills and provide more and more creative work, serving all moods of their customers. For example, this sexy punky little outfit (shown with their versatile color-changing boots that include a hud—FFL Exclusive!) highlights how they can go from dramatic romanticism to sexy grunge in one turn.

Even casual is no problem for L&B, as shown by this darling little outfit with its cropped hoodie sweater, distressed jeans and funky sculpty belt. Paul and BastChild’s talents contribute so much to SL and it’s an honor to have them sponsor a sim at Fashion for Life.

And they also make men’s wear. This iconic tuxedo will make any man stand tall and handsome and take him around the grid in style. They also offer the incredibly-styled shoes shown (and honestly, there are only a handful of really great men’s shoe makers in SL).

Paul and BastChild have participated in Fashion for Life for several years because they know how important the work the American Cancer Society is. In 2007, cancer was the cause of death of 13% of the people worldwide (7.9 million). It killed 700,030 people in North America in 2007; 2,326,515 in Eastern Asia in one year; more than 50,000 in Australia that year; and 521,303 in Western Europe in 2007.  It’s a global disaster, much more expensive and tragic than any other disaster you might see on TV or in newspapers right now. Relief for this is needed year round, year after year. Paul and BastChild’s generous donation adds a small bit to this. They also know, despite the “American” in the Society’s name, their donation will help globally.
