I’ve had a few things from Damien Fate for awhile now, but in the last few months it seems like the FATE label has been jump started with a fire and passion for kick-ass mesh clothing in a way that you don’t see very often in SL.
This jacket and tie come in the whole range of FATE’s signature color scheme that are deep and muted on the sunscale. I want to steer clear of the dreaded ‘earthtones’ word because that isn’t it either but it has the richness I’m looking for- the exception being the red, or Volcano, hue in his repetroire. The shirt is also available with each of the colored jacket/tie combos. Individually or in his FATEPack, you can have a pretty diverse combination of colors. Finally, the coat has two styles- open and closed- and the tie/shirt combos match whether the jacket is open or not.
Besides the shape- besides the shading and colors- besides the fit and tailored look- the two things I love the most about FATE’s sets are that one, you wear the same size in everything he does and two, the alpha layers are always just perfect. And speaking of sizing, I’ve noticed I can put the larger sizes on and not look odd- I just look like I’m wearing a jacket that’s too big. Its one thing I’ve noticed about sizing in some other designer’s work- if you wear something to big you suddenly have a pinhead and look like a footballer whereas with FATE- it looks like a big jacket. Kinda neato.
Since I dont use a Materials ready viewer (I can’t STAND the default SL Viewer and the last time I tried had disasterous results and I lost thousands of inventory items), I can’t see the materials on the outfit so you’re just going to have to go see for yourself. And buy it!
So sayeth your Queen.
