+STYLE STAR+ El Principe Gitano, JJ Reyes !

style star jj reyes 3

The stars in the sky will shine bright tonight knowing that we pay tribute to one of their brightest young consorts. As we are always expressing here at The Eye of Faith, style is about the attitude, and bringing a truly individual edge that will set you apart from the rest, and the +STYLE STAR+ we have chosen this week invokes all these attributes and more.

JJ Reyes is a talented style savant from Seville, Spain, showcasing his passion for things fashion on his personal style blog El Principe Gitano. On top of JJ’s ultra rad and sophisticated take on style, his site is a beautiful escape to some of Spain’s most iconic and beautiful landmarks.

This handsome Gypsy Prince took the time to let us pick his brain on his unique style, the things he loves most, and the future seen through his most exceptional and unique eye!

First, a bit of an introduction to yourself. What is your name, and what do you do?

My name is JJ Reyes, I am studying Advertising & PR in Seville (Spain), where I live. I have a fashion blog titled ‘The Gypsy Prince’ (http://www.elprincipegitano.com) that I opened a year ago. It has more than 50.000 visits, with the intention of sharing a virtual space to show my ambitions, concerns, places, pleasures and even the people who usually are next to me.

I am in love with everything about fashion and trends, a passion I show weekly on the blog through my different looks. I am also working as a DJ and model.

What would be your earliest fashion memory, and has it played a part in leading you to your fashion future?

I don’t think I will ever give an answer to this question, since I have no clear memory of fashion in my childhood. However, I can assure you it wasn’t until 14 years old when I began to focus my attention on fashion, which led me to an evident change of style in my early teen years.

When you wake up in the morning, what thoughts go through your mind while picking out your outfit for the day?

I always have in mind a specific garment that I want to wear, just that one. The other garments that go with it appears in my mind while I am standing in front of the closet. Obviously, the weather is an important element when I am choosing what I’m going to wear.

Do you have any go-to inspirations or style idols you look up to in your own style?

I don’t. I just want to have something from these three groups: 90s, Bloggers and Disney. I want the camera equipment of Chiara Ferragni, I want Pocahontas’ black long hair and I also want to make love to 90’s Kate Moss and Johnny Depp couple. I really think that my own style is the mix of random elements that apparently have no sense together to create the perfect look.

What has been your most important lesson in life when it comes to your own personal brand of style?

Biggest lesson in fashion life is undoubtedly swimming at the middle. The best thing is to stay there, between austerity and excess.

Where are your favourite go-to spots to go for killer fashion and style?

I am a big fan of Spanish brand ZARA. It gets to you every single huge prèt-a-porter trend from the catwalk to their worldwide stores.


You’re walking down the street and stumble upon a time portal that will take you anywhere you want to go in the history of time. Where do you decide to take it, and why?

90s. I want to make love to Kate Moss and Johnny Deep couple.

Here’s a fun one. You’ve accidentally conjured up an angry spirit who won’t get the hell out of your closet. You want to call the cops, but you know they won’t believe you so you pull out your exorcism kit and go to work. What is the one thing you are hoping to save from your wardrobe?

Doc Martens boots, I can’t live without them.

What is the worst fashion advice you’ve ever heard or been given?

The worst fashion advice is when your friend is tired of shopping with you and put on her “It’s okay, it fits you well’’ face when you are trying some clothes, because all that she wants is you to buy those fucking jeans so she can leave the store.

Any thoughts of the future of mens fashion and/or fashion in general, through the eyes of J.J. ?

Skirts. A Texas conservative man wearing a Givenchy skirt, that could be a great accomplishment for men’s fashion industry in the future.

Liz Taylor, in the {plaster} FLESH!

Scents Memory is a fantastic blog we frequent, and is completely one-of-a-kind in it’s story. At Scents Memory you will find eloquent and dream-like fantasy descriptions of the world’s most luxurious and fantastic fragrances for men – a topic that is becoming more and more popular on the front of the men’s fashion scene these days.

If you’re wondering what kind of cologne might suit you, visit Scents Memory and indulge in tales of movie stars, travels, legends, and memory. {theEye} has it’s eye set on a bottle of KNIZE 10 – the favourite cologne to stars like James Dean and Marlene Dietrich for its unique qualities.

“This old school classic is anything but old. It is vibrant and modern in the most wonderful and unique way. And it is a pro at projecting with fine silage that garners some attention.  Mature is the order of the day with Knize 10, it is not for little boys to pay with matches like these. They could start a fire that is too hot to handle.”

{Lanier Smith, Scents Memory}

You might remember one of our latest E.O.F. Snapshots of the Day featuring Angie Dickinson against a fantastical wall of plaster life masks of some of Hollywood’s biggest legends.

One legend in particular caught the eye of Lanier Smith, the man behind the words at Scents Memory – that of the iconic Liz Taylor. Lanier was kind enough to share with us the photos he has of his copy of the exact same life mask seen in this photo!

The Eye of Faith is proud to share them with you here!

“When people say, ‘She’s got everything’, I’ve got one answer – I haven’t had tomorrow.”

+Elizabeth Taylor+

What a fine and rare treasure, indeed. The plaster cast was painted gold for an ultra decadent and glamorous touch. She look so peaceful in that moment…

This is just a small taste of what Lanier Smith has to offer, and by the word of {theEye}, you will not regret taking a visit to Scents Memory. Like we said, it is a truly one-of-a-kind experience on the web; a sensitive and thoughtful look at what the world has to offer a man, and the journeys he can take simply through the scent of his cologne.

Pretty simple, but pretty profound. Thanks Lanier and Scents Memory for sharing!

Sincerely,

{theEye}
