Logo t-shirts with matching boardies

Six SHIKI logo tanktops. Each design is decorated with the SHIKI logo but in different arrangements to make each one unique. Other features on the tanks are the letters TYO, which stands for Tokyo, where SHIKI is based and the address Nakano-ku, which is where the designer lives. The number 127 has meaning as well, but that's for you to guess. ;)

Women's shorts come in a skin-tight version. The men's shorts are a bit baggier to make it look more like boardies.

Each set comes with tanktop in shirt, jacket, undershirt and underwear layers. Boardie shorts come in pants layer.

SHIKI DEBUT grand opening party!

Thank you so much to the people who made the SHIKI grand opening party a success! Many people and long hours of hard work went into the event. I would also like to thank all our supporters who made it a point to come to the event. We were at our max of 80 avatars throughout the event and I'd like to apologize to those who had a hard time teleporting into the sim.

Our treasure hunt is still going on throughout the sim. As a hint, there are four treasure boxes that can be found inside the SHIKI shop and they are all on the first floor in easy to find places!
There are 23 boxes in all!!! Make sure you get your other freebies at our welcome center provided by all our talented designers at SHIKI.

For pictures of the party and the SHIKI sim, please look here!

We will be having special events throughout the year and if you'd like to stay abreast of what's happenning at SHIKI, make sure to join the SHIKI DESIGNS group at our SHIKI shop.

Once again, thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you soon at SHIKI!!!

SHIKI sim grand opening event! DEBUT!!!!!

*** SHIKI - All set for its big DEBUT ***

The SHIKI sim is a revolution in taste led by style gurus who are redefining SL craftsmanship in everything from fashion and furniture to flora and fauna. Some of the best sculpty artisans have set up shop here - including Tesla Miles, Jennifer Hana (Sculptmix), Jon Haskell (Sculpty Creations) and JubJub Forder (tranQuility). As a sim, SHIKI is about stylish surprise, a strenuous attention to detail, and cosmopolitan flair - qualities epitomised by the flagship Shiki brand as well as the Excelsis modelling agency, which has chosen to site its headquarters in the sim.

The designers on board span the globe - Spica, Massimo and Shiki hail from Japan, Baiastice from Italy, Freshwind from Spain, in addition to the Korean-American Millage Valenti, and stalwart American brands like Swafette Firefly's SF Designs, ZHAO Shoes, Role Optic, and Long Awkward Pose.

There are shops which are just sheer fun - the handheld fans of Digital Eyes, AvaUru's naughty-but-oh-so-nice cakes, and the quirky goods available in Cluster and Love Me Tender. Look out too for Niyanbar,our very own Japanese biker bar run by Niyanba Sidappan, and the SHIKI Showcase, a special area in the sim that honours the idiosyncratic vision of designers like 3Star Tyne and Annesa Stine's Kitsch *En Couture.

On Aug 9, the SHIKI sim opens its doors with DEBUT, a rainbowed, marvellous, friendly, wonderful Sim Opening Party. The ChangHigh Trinity Sisters will be kicking off festivities at 6 a.m. SLT with their mesmerizing mix of pyrotechnics, music and movement. Tuna Oddfellow then brings on his psychedelicious Odd Ball from 7 to 9 a.m. SLT, and the party will wind down to the chillout bossa nova sounds of Winston Ackland from 9 to 10 a.m. SLT. Throughout the 4 hours, there'll be a sim-wide katamari treasure hunt with katamaris galore for the finding and keeping, great freebies from the various designers, and a style competition with cash prizes every hour on the hour.

Celebrate the summer Japanese style with yukatas

Japanese yukatas for the summer season

Here in Japan, we either love or hate summertime. But we all agree on one thing. Summertime is the time to relax, go to the beach and visiting all the festivals going on around the country.
The traditional attire to these festivals, or anywhere for that matter, is the summer yukata. They are usually made of cotton and is meant to be comfortable during the hot summer months. Since there are no pockets to be found in the yukata itself, we carry a bag called kinchaku. The traditional geta sandals are a must to complete the ensemble.
