Pop Feel

cyam Amat is a new Japanese designer who opened her store Pop Feel a few days ago. Her clothes are fresh and cute but have a sophisticated, almost European edge. I'm really excited about the work of many of the new designers from Japan, and the influence they are exerting on Second Life fashion in general. cyam's work is impressive for a new designer, and the prices are right too. This post was a little rushed, that's what I get for shopping right before the Lindens kick everyone out of the pool.

The Chidori Knit Dress (130L) is a simple woolen dress with houndstooth pattern, comfy knitted collar and contrasting red ribbed tights. The Odeka Lace Shoes are from Feather, which is located right next door to Pop Feel, and are a steal at 80L a pair.

The Retro Jacket and Black Knit (195L) continues the houndstooth theme. I will point out that the texturing on the jacket could be better, it's a little blurry, but it's otherwise a well made piece with a great flexi waist and prim cuffs and collar. I wasn't disappointed with my purchase and will definitely wear the jacket. The shoes, which as best as I could tell are called pan-bered, are also from Feather for 80L.

Retro Green Jacket Set (150L) is a shorts and jacket set. Again, a well made flexi waist and cute cuffs and collar. The shorts appear to use quite a bit of photosourcing, probably not something I would normally wear but they do look great with the jacket.

Most of the items shown above are available in other colours, and there's a fair bit more in the store as well. Pop Feel is well worth a look, and I can't wait to see more from this new designer.
