As you know, Ricco retired from the clothes design business, but now he’s undertaken a new creative endeavor: Second Sighting. His new blog is all about the marvel of people’s ingenuity in a virtual world, so he will be traveling the up and down the grid, taking pictures and recording his impressions of sims that highlight the creator’s inventiveness and originality.
Please join Ricco on Second Sighting and follow his journey as he explores the world of Second Life. – Keebo
Dear friends and customers,
For a variety of reasons, Havana menswear is closing. Nonetheless, since designing in SL and keeping the store allthis time has allowed us to have fun, meet great people and make some new friends, we would like to show you our gratitude by having a last sale: 50% off for all of Havana’s products until Oct. 10, but only at the store. After that date, our items will be available only on the marketplace (no discount there) – and probably there will be no new items. So, hurry up to the store: HAVANA’s main store
Keebo and Ricco
After a period of hard work, we are finally proud to announce HAVANA’s new collection for male avatars in SL. Our customers have already had a small preview of our new items, which coincided with the past 49 L Sale For Dudes and the Menstuff Hunt – and now the whole collection arrives together with our participation in the Menswear Fashion Week 2011 and the 5th 49 L Sale (both events have started yesterday, March 18, and will continue until next Friday, March 25).
This time, HAVANA brings to you a series of bikini briefs with sculpted front, tanks, flexi jackets, shorts (which can be transformed into pants as well) with prim cuffs and prim waist bands and loose flexi ties which can be combined with our casual outfits as a fancy accessory. We also decided to develop an additional camo version of selected items, in order to give our customers even more options along with the colorful alternatives already identified with HAVANA. If you are interested in seeing some of our new stuff on the runway, along with other outfits we have developed since the past Fashion Week, do not miss the shows during the Menswear Fashion Week 2011. Our first participation will be today, March 19, at 4 P.M. SL Time, during the SL Boy’s Night Out (Casual Group Show), at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/San%20Francisco%20Marina/125/210/41. Also, our 49 L Sale item, which you can buy both at HAVANA’s main store and at HAVANA’s store at the Fashion Week sim, is one of our new releases: the Camo Boy Shorts, in its Sky Camo version. So, here’s what you’ll find in our new collection:
So, do not forget:
