Screen-Shot-2014-06-12-at-11.16.33-AM-1024x618-830x501

The Juno Awards are back in Hamilton this year, and its definitely brought a huge slew of exciting things to do in the city this weekend.

For our international audience, The Juno Awards are the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards with huge artists like Bryan Adams, Kiesza, Magic!, Drake, Leonard Cohen, Chromeo, and Alanis Morisette (to name a few) being honoured with nominations this year.

Tonight on James St. N the Juno’s will be taking over James St. North’s monthly Art Crawl for a Juno Crawl that will integrate the already slam packed night with over 30 music venues up and down the strip for a one-of-a-kind night of music, art, and of course, FASHION!

The Eye of Faith will be open all night to take in the festivities and serve our loyal style-wise clients with exuberant and timeless pieces from the {past} to bring alive in the {present} and invoke the {future}!!!

We will also be open all weekend, including Sunday, in case you can’t make it for Friday and Saturday (or in case, Alanis Morissette needs say, a dress, or anything else of the sort!).

{MUSIC MINUTE} “EDIE (CIAO BABY)” by The Cult + A Wicked Rare Tour T That Gives You The Body Electric!

 

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.

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.
