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:

Jaunty for Men, an SL magazine for men’s fashion, presents the 49 Linden Sale for Dudes, running from June 20-26. All items in the sale/hunt will be L$ 49, well below their normal selling price.
HAVANA is proud to be part of this event. The item we are offering you is the Lazy Nights Black-to-Red tank. It normally sells for L$ 100, so here’s your change to get it at a 50% savings.
We will have two vendors available for you to purchase this item from, one at each entrance to our HAVANA On the Docks location. Vendors for this sale can be identified by the Dude Arrow:

(UPDATE on Aug. 31, 2009: We released the new Starry Night Jeans, you can check it here: https://havanainsl.wordpress.com/2009/08/29/new-stary-night-jeans/)
OK, so you have those cool mid-rise jeans and a nice tank to wear with them, but… oh, that tank requires some traditional cut jeans and yours are only mid-rise ones. Well, people in that party won’t mind if you go bare-chested – that’s what some of the guys there do. But then, hum, why not wear some low-rise jeans? Oh, no, yours are only mid-rise ones.
HAVANA’s release this week is aimed at solving that problem. We now have some basic denim pants in 3 different cuts each: low-rise, mid-rise and traditional cut. You can buy them individually or, even better, in discounted packs! Do you want more? Sure, buy one of our discounted packs and get an Essential White Tank FOR FREE!!!
Did I say “basic jeans”? Well, we have the basic black and navy ones, but at some point our designer went crazy and decided also to make a psycho-retro version of them. They are all in the pics.
– Antigua Jeans – L$ 125 each (color options: black, navy or psycho-retro; size options: low-rise, mid-rise or traditional cut)
– Antigua Multi-Size Pack – L$ 285 (each pack comes with 3 versions on the same color: low-rise, mid-rise and traditional cut; color options: black, navy or psycho-retro; buy the pack and recive an Essential White Tank FOR FREE)
– Essential White Tank – L$ 75
You can check the new jeans, the discounted packs and the white tank at our stores:

Note: If you are interested in details about the pants, maybe you would like to know that they are completely hand-made – I mean, I didn’t use photo-based textures in any part of the process. I have nothing against those textures, and Iknow that people have been achieving amazing results with them. Nonetheless, I chose to make my textures without resorting to pics. It’s the way I like to work.
The Havana experiences with colors and textures go on, this time in a collection called Lazy Nights. I’ve created a tank and a lace shirt that come in different colors – as usual – and in discounted color packs.
The tanks are in gradient colors and, because of the variation, they can go from deep tones to light ones. This characteristic gives them freshness and vigor at the same time.
The lace shirts resulted from an attempt to create a “real” lace texture – not just a partially-transparent colored layer, but a texture that could display the net of lace work. I was in doubt as to whether I would offer them in a wide range of colors. I finally decided to do so, though the main focus is the pattern itself and not so much the tones applied to them.
