Design is not for philosophy it's for life. ~Issey Miyake
I love Issey Miyake, he is a real life designer with a creative flare for the artistic. So much of his designs are like wearable sculptures and I love the concept that you can wear any old dress to an art exhibit or you can be the centerpiece work of art at the art show. We are lucky in Second Life, because we can be the centerpiece work of art affordably. Where in real life I can only look at the pictures and admire something Miyake has done, in Second Life, I can make pictures of myself wearing the items Yula has made.
In the first picture, I am wearing part of Finemith’s “Love” series in my choice of the “Love doesn’t grow on trees” face ornament. It is one of the most incredibly sensual works of art I have ever worn. Love doesn’t grow on trees is a very 3 dimensional piece of art, symbolizing the tree of life and how love is the center piece of the tree. The flowering limb, whose center is the heart shows that love will grow, if only we learn to love, honestly and openly. Another exceptionally beautiful 3-dimensional work of art is the “I Love to Love” necklace and bracelet. This is another gorgeous set with its mild calming pastels. The heart is encrusted with a botanical garden of beauty with the sacred Calla Lily, a symbol of magnificent beauty in many cultures, featured throughout the piece, weaving its way softly up the chain, gently framing the face lovingly. The bracelet is a continuation of the petals of the necklace and includes a gorgeous chain of beading.
In the picture below, I am wearing one of Finesmith’s newest and hottest items, the “Aesthetic Value” which includes a ring, bracelet, necklace and earrings. This is a gorgeous set in that it is substantial and heavy so it won’t get lost while you are on the runway or at an event where what you wear is as important as who you are. It is available in gold, silver, blue, Earth, fusion and wooden so it is versatile enough to fit from sheer elegance to a more free-spirited BOHO,whatever your style of the day is. Check it out! I know Finesmith has something for everyone’s tastes, from extravagant to demure. <3
