Kal Rau

Gentlemen… I take my hat off to you (it’s a cute fushia leather hat from Maitreya… heehee).  I never really realized how limited you are when it comes to shopping for a wardrobe.  Men’s fashion has developed at a much slower pace than womenswear but there is a fair amount of quality clothing out there that folks may not be aware of.  There are good designers and then there are GREAT designers.  Kal Rau falls into GREAT!

Kal Rau knows what looks good on a man and designs a line of very easy going and sporty clothing.  The versatility is great… you can mix and match his designs and add a few accessories to boot.  The craftsmanship of the clothing is incredible and the textures are so real.  You walk away looking like a million bucks without spending it.

How many times have you walked into a clothing store and picked up some promotional (freebie) clothing just to get home, try it on and delete it?  I know I’ve done it so often I can’t keep track.  You would think you would learn by now, right?  But you just can’t pass up a freebie and I’m happy Brett didn’t either.  This is what freebies should look like.  The Kal Rau Sport Shorts and White Long Sleeve Promotional Shirt are perfect . 


Temperance Moonites already wrote about the changes Neferia Abel is going through and showed some of her new spring collection. It made me anxious, I know Neferia as a lady who always has idea’s and is willing to try new things, so I visited the official opening of her new store and launch of her new brand, L’Abel to see for myself. I love her new modern style, the designs are more trendy than her brand Ivalde was, you can still see some inspiration from the early days. Which makes her designs standing out instead of being just a go with the fashion flow.

Neferia surprised me with a nice present, a start for my spring wardrobe. I show you here the grey outfits, because they are my personal favorit. But don’t worry, if you like more colorful outfits, you absolutly will find them also at L’Abel!

Neferia, thanks for the sweet gift and good luck with your personal spring, a new beginning. The place looks great and I can see you put many hours of work in it, all fits to make the trendy, modern, stylish look complete. Complements!

Go take a look at L’Abel now and experience the spring! And you like presents too? You can find 2 special opening gifts from Neferia in the L’Abel store.

It can be very expensive to stay ahead of the fashion trends in Second Life™. Most month’s I spend around $5000 Linden or more on skin, hair, shoes, clothing, and accessories. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love a wonderful store freebie, group gift, or hunt find. Those freebies can spruce up your wardrobe when your wallet has nothing but lint in it.
