CheerNo Deuil Winter Collection

For men's fashion in Second Life, none are as alternative as CheerNo. He does not draw within the lines. He likes to get messy and it all comes together in a creative explosion of in your face style.

"Montage", his fall line released last month, brought forth colorful pieces woven through with childhood whimsy like lollipops, legos and cotton candy. The old adage real men wear pink has been redefined to include bright and vibrant yellows and stunning purples and blues.

With the release of his "Deuil" winter collection, which means "Mourning" in French. (Thank you Aris :D) A more somber line. Given its name this makes sense. However the boldness of the outfits cannot be missed. It gave me the impression of someone mourning but not at all ashamed to experience those emotions and let it be known. With a palette of silvers, whites and deep blacks, the clothes are fierce. Mixing in elements of popular icons such as Marilyn Monroe and even a bit of Glam Rock ala David Bowie.

Mortifera, a fearlessly sexy ensemble that includes a see thru black shirt with Marilyn Manson's image emblazoned on the chest and torso, bondage style bracelets and armbands, was a crowd pleaser. The HOMME Venus Dark skins created just for this show, added the finishing touch.

As always, CheerNo's pieces are perfect for mixing and matching. The black padded half jackets with hoods and ski pants, yes ski pants. Wool blazers, sequin patterned pants along with cleverly sculpted attachments truly enhance and deliver a real feel to the line.
