"Second Life" Virtual Fashion Lookbook

  • Uncategorised

For all the things I disliked about the ‘new look’ website Linden Lab deployed this Summer.. their fashion Lookbook is a very slick piece of work. The featured pieces were showcased during the online world’s Summer fashion extravaganza, and have been collected as an interactive catalogue. The pieces are sorted by designer, and are blown up from thumbnails to include a ‘buy now’ link and share tools, allowing us to shop directly from the woefully-named X-Street SL. Pretty and convenient.

Ironically, the Lookbook‘s a lot more convenient than visiting each designer’s own shop, for all the landmark-hunting and slow downloads that involves. Could this spell an end to my one pleasurable indulgence on that platform?
