HESE ARE the thinking man’s version of the t-shirt and jeans ensemble: Isis Shirts and Classic Jeans from Zaara. There is, of course, a simplicity born of shallowness. But when you achieve simplicity through rich colour and intricacy of detail, you have arrived at intelligence. “Smart casual” indeed.
Zaara Kohime’s clothes and jewelry for women have always been full of grace, colour and hints of the exotic. The story goes that she created men’s versions of her hand drawn jeans after spotting males wandering the grid wearing the women’s version. Her small collection of men’s garments are very welcome. We can only hope that the range expands.
Zaara’s Classic Jeans with prim cuffs are available in indigo and black, the colours I’m wearing, or moss, ash or sky. They can be purchased individually for L$190 or in a fat pack for L$750. Permissions are copy ok, mod ok, no transfer for these as well.
Isis shirts are available individually for L$150, or in packs of 3 colours for L$400, or in a fat pack of all colours for L$1000. I’ve displayed the “Darks Pack” of forest green, blue and coffee. There is also a Neutrals Pack of white, cream and black, and a Colours Pack of leaf, turquoise and bright tan. The shirts come on all layers plus an underwear layer for low-waisted trousers. The jacket layer garment comes as a normal shirt or in a sheer version. Permissions are copy ok, mod ok, no transfer.
You’ll find the mainstore at Zaara (135, 132, 24). The men’s department is in a small side room.
