Entitled, Maybe - Edie Sedgwick Inspirations - The Eye of Faith Vintage

“Edie was spoiled materially, but starved and tortured emotionally. You can see that in her eyes. Oh, those sprightly, beautiful but also deeply sorrowful light brown eyes that I will never forget.”

– Andy Warhol

+Style Divinity+ Edie Sedgwick is one of those icons of style that cannot be denied. She also seems to represent a sort of decadent disheveledness that seems to have swept the upper classes of the 20th Century (for better or worse).

And for those in that world, it must have been most shocking to see a socialite like herself take off on a truly remarkable roller coaster ride through the world of Art & Fashion only to pitfall into a dark hole of abuse and addiction.

We admire her freedom. But like we always say – is freedom free?

After all, could she really have lived such a life if it weren’t for her entitled upbringing? Probably not. But, in all respects, we all wish we could have a piece of that entitlement, really, and there are those who are brought up with the same regard to status in society who live very successful and honourable lives.

In the end, it all comes down to choices.

What Life Must Have Looked Like For Her Most of the Time- Edie Sedgwick Inspirations - The Eye of Faith Vintage

You have to put up with the risk of being misunderstood if you are going to try to communicate. You have to put up with people projecting their own ideas, attitudes, misunderstanding you. But it’s worth being a public fool if that’s all you can be in order to communicate yourself.

-Edie Sedgwick

So in the end, what will you choose?

Our {MUSIC MINUTE} gives an ode to this Stylish Queen of Tragedy, and points to some of these ideas, and the world Edie inhabited, and looked toward.

It is a rare song from one of the most iconic bands of the post-punk/goth rock movement of the 1980s, led by the singularly iconic Ian Astbury whose mystical and almost enchanted rock persona still pushes the bounds of style for men (giant black hats, anyone?), so its not surprising that he also grew up in the same hometown as us here at The Eye of Faith!


Recorded in 1989, ” Edie (Ciao Baby)” is one their great songs, and seemed all too fitting to not feature!

We are also excited to announce that we have in possession a very rare tour t-shirt from the iconic Electric World Tour of The Cult back in 1987!! That in itself is quite unusual, but what makes the piece in our collection that much more unique is that it was from a run of shirts made in Canada featuring only the cities in Canada they performed at on the back.

Suddenly Sedgwick!

“You live alone, creating life as you.”

-Edie Sedgwick

Seems like the world is going to become even closer to Edie Sedgwick, Andy’s Warhol’s famous factory girl, and high priestess of hip, thanks to Marc Jacob‘s latest Spring/Summer 2013 presentation in New York City this month.

“If all I cared about was me, I could make a million. And that’s what they will never
 understand.”

-Edie Sedgwick


Sedgwick became an international sensation, embracing the life force that so radically inhabited her pretty prep school self. From her smudged eyes and leopard spots, to that undeniable charisma, Edie owned her persona A to Z, making it unbelievably hard not to fall in love with.

She had a bit of a tragic life, but who doesn’t? Far greater than her tragedy are the precedents of beauty, vitality, and ingenuity she possessed throughout her life, and the veiled mystery she still seems to portray. Sedgwick was also able to make a name for herself as an actress, playing versions of herself in art flicks directed by Warhol, among others.  Somehow, she was able to make her entire life a work of art, in a way, which is also tragic but also profound.

“Isn’t that sad! I’m so fragile! It’s tragic! Can you believe it? That’s so sad.”

-Edie Sedgwick

The collection is being lauded as one of the designer’s absolute best, so expect to see the scene come alive with these notions. “Young girls need to learn that sexiness isn’t about being naked” says the iconic designer, and who better than Edie Sedgwick to illustrate this.

The sexiest we see Edie isn’t naked, but when she is talking art and/or philosophy, or doing a dance in a shift dress. It’s her tightrope roping the sidewalks, or simply just having a laugh. What truly defines this appeal is her lack of inhibition and selfless expressionism….


Jacob’s collection captured the very essence of the iconic free bird of the New York City art scene of the 60s, and created a collection that is both classic and forward. There is no doubt, we will be seeing a lot more of Edie, and the inherent {TRADITIONS} she has been able to release into the wild….

I think something very weird‘s going on now, ’cause the power that is permitted to youth is quite extraordinary. And they are sort of run by that kind of power.”

-Edie Sedgwick

Sincerely,

{theEye}
