Neferia Abel is a well-known Second Life designer.  Her Ivalde store has been an important destination for lovers of retro, vintage and period designs for a long time.  But Neferia has always done current fashion as well.  Despite this, her success in the vintage areas has caused many to think of her and Ivalde as purely vintage fashions.  In order to combat this misconception, several months ago, Neferia decided to release her new modern clothing lines under a new name, L’Abel.  She is currently in the process of releasing her latest Autumn collection, several of which are presented below.  The L’Abel line of clothes is chic and sophisticated with clean lines and figure-flattering silhouettes.  This latest collection is wonderfully constructed with very detailed textures that are realistically highlighted.

Below are pictured five outfits from this collection.  The first form the left is the Vivvike  black glitter set.  the high waisted knee-length skirt is made of a beautiful sequined fabric.  The bodice is a shiny black satin with sulpted puff sleeves.  The scuplted black satin scarf is included.

Next is the gorgeouos black and gold Mellie gold, a short cocltail dress with hem of the multi-tiered skirt above the knee.  the texture is a nice organic brocade of golden leaves on black.  the shoulder cuffs are sculpted prims and the black satin gloves are included.

In the middle is the all black Arja, which combines a ruched satin bodice with a delicate tafetta knee-length skirt. the collar and shoulder cuffs are luxurious fur and black satin gloves are included.

How many of us have put on the “perfect dress” and then spent the next 20 minutes rummaging through  inventory, looking for jewelry that will complete the look?  I have some great jewelry but of course not everything I have is  going to match my ever growing wardrobe.  I guess it’s that time again… TIME TO SHOP!

Applonia Criss of CHANTKARE has been designing clothing in Second Life for less than a year and she has come a long way in such a short span of time.  As a designer, she brings us “modern hip” creations, fulfulling our cravings as fahionistas to stand out… to be one of a kind.  Her existing jewelery line is ever expanding and up-to-date with the season and trends, complimenting her clothing.  She makes pieces that work together to create a total image and balance what you are wearing.  Applonia’s designs will accomodate any one of your moods or tastes… from simply classy to edgy elegance.

The LONGLACE DAY DRESS is simply adorable!  The moment I put it on, I just knew that I was going to get a lot of use out of this dress.  This is the perfect dress for all occassions.  The lace detail is wonderful… the same texture is carried out through the entire dress and I like the way the bodice is sheer but not too sheer.  The skirt moves beautifully beacuse the underskirt is in two parts, each part moving independantly of the other.
