+THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH+

Leave it to a band called “Garbage” to style one of the most iconic Bond songs ever made.

We’ve profiled Adele’s stunning take on the Bond song with “Skyfall” back in 2012, and still agree that it is one of the best, as well as a masterful encapsulation of the {PAST}, {PRESENT}, and {FUTURE}.

Garbage - The World is Not Enough- Style Wise- The Eye of Faith Vintage

Garbage did the same thing, only 15 years ago, which in our world makes it certifiably vintage!

That makes it all the more fun to revisit now and marvel at the power of Shirley Manson’s voice and the seductive lyrical quality that only a GREAT Bond song can provide.

We still think Shirley Manson is a timeless style icon whose fashions are mesmerizing menageries of things {PAST}, {PRESENT} and {FUTURE} which in our {EYE} makes her the BOMB-DIGGIDY.

That’s why we made this special {MUSIC MINUTE} a {STYLE WISE} edition, as well, to keep feeding some Shirley Manson realness to the forefront of our popular culture!

{STYLE-WISE} Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc

Google_Doodle_Eug_ne_Emmanuel_Viollet_le_Duc_200th_Birthday

Yesterday, French architect and theorist Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc {27 January 1814 – 17 September 1879} was celebrated by the Google Doodle for his renowned work in the advancement of his field, and his forethought in celebrating Medieval architecture in the modern day. His work was the antithesis of the popular style of the time period, and continued to be an inspiration long after his death in 1879 to many architects including Frank Lloyd Wright.

Using advanced technology unavailable to the masons and engineers of the time, Viollet-le-Duc implemented Industrial Age techniques to reinforce and celebrate the many marvels of his homeland including Chartres Cathedral and the iconic Notre Dame de Paris.

Eugene_viollet_le_duc

We always say the {past} influences the {present} in a way that shapes the {future}, and Viollet-Le-Duc seems to have definitely gotten the memo. For those who can take on board this eternal wisdom, be prepared for a far richer experience of the everyday than if you boldly ignore this blatantly evident truth.

And while the physical restorations themselves are a sight to behold, his meticulous hand-renderings are among the most wildly beautiful exhibits of man’s inherent genius and promise.

{STYLE STORY} E.O.F. Presents “DAZE OF BEING WILD”

Enjoy this {STYLE STORY} offering  from THE EYE OF FAITH!

A journey that started at night, this is a tale of wandering; wandering thoughts, wandering hearts, and wandering souls.

The city can bring together strangers, while it can also tear those closest apart. Amongst the storefronts, sidewalks, lane ways, and hidden passages – you are bound to find that sacred recluse you have been seeking to find.

Inspiration was taken from wild nights had late at night on the street, rebel gang boys and bad girls of the 1950s, “Rebel Without a Cause“, and the work of film master Wong Kar Wai. We threw it all together  for one hell of a wild ride on the neon streets and shadows of the Junction.

As promised, we decided to preview some of our women’s collection in this shoot so all our faithful lady friends definitely have something to look forward to! We will be photographing and adding our women’s wear over the next few weeks, so keep your {EYE}s open on our {SHOP}.

We were also lucky enough to have our good friend Lydia join us for a shoot, which was more than a pleasure! She is a fantastic model with amazing abilities, so it was pure magic to have her with us on set. Lots of love, Lydia! Lots of love!

So enough messing around, please take part and check  it all out! After all, we made this for you!

Let E.O.F. take you to the “DAZE OF BEING WILD“.

Hope you all enjoy!

Would love to hear your feedback on the photos and looks, so please leave your comments below. Make sure to let your friends know what they are missing!

<FACEBOOK yet, please do! >>

Also, thanks so much for all the support! It really means a lot.

Sincerely,

+ Every man that hath seen me forgetteth me never, and I appear oftentimes in the coals of the fire, and upon the smooth white skin of woman, and in the constancy of the waterfall, and in the emptiness of deserts and marshes, and upon great cliffs that look seaward; and in many strange places, where men seek me not. And many thousand times he beholdeth me not. And at last I smite myself into him as a vision smiteth into a stone, and whom I call must follow. . . +

Today I Woke Up, And Saw Cranes . . .

There were boats, and cranes, and storage containers….

Today I woke up and saw cranes. Been seeing them a lot lately. Sprung out of the Earth, fresh from the soil. They build things for the city.

As the city grows, the cranes move along their way building more things for the city. Paths for trains to the city.

Yet here we are, amongst the cranes basking in our own private industrial oasis.

Sinking ships and railway cars just simply do not compare.
