Going Dutch

I’m in love.

It started out innocently enough with a post from Ben Vanguard at SL Man, blogging this purple leather jacket by Iki Ikarus. Wow! A quick hop, skip and teleport later I was completely broke and in possession of several new-but-old-and-comfy-looking pieces from Dutch Touch, including the purple leather jacket. In fact, I loved it so much, I talked Phoenix into buying one too (Okay, so the truth is he bought mine for me, and then I made him buy himself one…we vowed to stay together through richer and poorer, and he’s richer while I’m poorer <grin>).

I found some amazing great stuff there, ladies. The whole build is fantastic, very warehouse-grunge. It kind of reminds me of FORM both in the style of the build and the style of the clothing, but there is lots more for girls at Dutch Touch. What I loved the most is this color of red that you don’t see very often in SL, a very deep crimson color that is the perfect contrast with the rest of the clothing which is mostly in shades of gray, brown and olive green.

I also found a sweet plaid sweater paired with an unbuttoned, button-down white shirt underneath, and 3/4 length dark denim cuffed shorts. Believe me, I didn’t buy everything, but I wanted to. Prices are a little bit up there, but the quality and layering/separates options are there. A mix of hand-drawn/photosource, the artistry is apparent here. Iki Ikarus has a lot to be proud of with this great collection!
