Beautiful Coral 1970s +BOHEMIAN GODDESS+ Summer Maxi Dress

 

For me the goddess is the female of God, She is powerful if different.
-Tina Turner

 

If you’ve had the chance to peruse our 2017 VINTAGE SUMMER LOOKBOOK perhaps you noticed this stunning 1970s coral maxi dress with sheer bell sleeves! 

It is such a phenomenal piece straight from the psychedelic 70s. If you haven’t noticed we’ve really been vibing for a psych rock summer, and this has all the appeal of a simpler, more beautiful, and compassionate time. 

We were lucky enough to have the beautiful and bold Raymona to show off its innate glory. 

 

And when we say Goddess – we don’t meant he domestic type. The E.O.F. +GODDESS+ is fearless and romantic- adventurous and educated. She loves the {PAST}, lives for the {PRESENT} moments and dreams for the {FUTURE}.

Most of all, she loves to have fun – and isn’t afraid to stand out in the crowd. In fact, she prefers it …and relishes in that very moment when everyone is asking – “who’s that stunning woman?” 

 

Luxury doesn’t have to come with a thousand dollar price tag. 

Luxury is the freedom to be you to the fullest, and the best expression of that is your style. 

Live out loud. Live free. We are stardust. We are golden (or in this case, maybe, coral)…

Remember friends . . .

What are the secrets locked deep in history that are haunting us each and everyday? Who are the makers of today, and who shall we become tomorrow?

The Original Roller Skater

The aspirations that seem to be engrained into our soul are to finally climb out of the epic pits of insanity that we collectively call humanity. Nothing ever seems to make sense. In fact, it is impossible not to feel in RAGE!!!

We’ve always been left simply searching…

Perhaps you search the aisles of the school library for some sign of truth, or perhaps you are wise enough to search the labyrinth of light in the sky for a pattern or sign to guide your every wake. The riddle of the sphinx, has it ever been solved? Or is it simply that it’s question has never even been asked . . . ?

What is it about the night? What do we achieve when we dream? This is a journey by man, a mystery that never ceases to delight. Deep in our dreams, we have found our very own {MASTER MASON} waiting patiently for our arrival. Waiting for us to say we’ll stay.

But that would be like laying awake in the shadows you can actually see at night.
We can go about our day to day and never once seek the layers beneath the fragile surface of time and our past . . .

In fact, it continues to live on and on forever, like something eternally true.

Go about your day to day. Seek the seekers in the shadows.

Lets find the {MASTER MASON} that’s within us all…

+Cum Lupis Ulula +
Howl with the Wolves…

The wind really picked up today, and the sky was just full of grey.

There is much planned. Our invocations are only just beginning! We will be conjuring many {traditions} from the past, and hope to inspire the {ritual} of dress.

So definitely be sure to check up with the {SHOP} for wicked deals and for all of our new arrivals!

+STYLE STAR+ ANDRE JUDD: PROPHET OF FASHION

If you’re a fan of Lookbook, or have ever had the chance to browse the online showcase of individual styles gathered to help foster the “collective fashion consciousness” that Lookbook is all about. While glancing past looks by a self proclaimed Mermaid from Neverland you are bound to stumble across this true one-of-a-kind Prophet of Fashion.

Just when you thought style couldn’t get more exciting or gloriously out-of-control you will meet Andre Judd. Andre treads the lines of dreaming and reality with a panache and attention to detail rivalling some of fashion’s greats. Time and time again, Andre has proved that the art of dressing is as much an art as any.

This type of talent is rare, and very few can achieve his bold unique punch of imagination, virtual reality, and pure abandon.  So, naturally we felt the need to connect with the Stylist, Designer, and Fashion Blogger Extraordinaire who answered a few of our questions on life, style, inspiration, and the unique fashion-forward fashion scene of Manila!

Most of all, we felt Andre was the perfect example of what we here at The Eye of Faith are always harping on about and that’s the courage to find inspiration and be your truest self to the highest extent.

“We see something new. Something exciting”

-Andre Judd.

EOF: There seems to be a lot of excitement and intrigue in the world of fashion in the Philippines. What would surprise or excite people most about the Filipino fashion scene?

AJ: Indeed. Every season we see new bright young talents emerge. These designers score high on the critics and fashion press because they have a refined focus on aesthetics as well being commercial.

I think what excites Filipinos about the fashion scene, is that every season it gets better and better. We see something new, something exciting.


EOF: Where would you say the epicentre of Filipino fashion is right now in the Philippines? Any favourite go-to spots?

AJ: Manila is considered the current fashion epicenter, drawing in designers from different parts of the country, as well as Filipino designers based abroad. There are a lot of cool retail shops and boutiques to check out in Manila. Top of my mind is Greenbelt 5, where a few concentrated stores are found selling current collections from my favourite local designers.

EOF: We love how many looks you create, and your undeniable knowledge for style. Who taught you these secrets? God, or deal with the Devil?

AJ: God. Definitely 🙂

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


AJ: Never say never. It’s my mantra ever since.

EOF: Creating so many complex and detailed looks must be quite the task. What is your secret to staying focused?

AJ: It’s not really hard. I wake up every morning with a strong idea on what I would wear.

EOF: You mix a lot of items one might typically prescribe as masculine or feminine, and it seems once they get the Andre Judd touch, it’s neither. Instead, it’s a whole new brand of cool. What do you call this?
AJ: Some call it non-conventional, others call it androgynous, but I call it post-modern and irreverent 🙂

“Fashion is about change”

-Andre Judd.

EOF: Interesting shapes, textures, and patterns are essential ingredients to your fashion magic. Do you have any tips on incorporating these ideas into one’s everyday style?
AJ: Try playing with shapes, textures, and patterns. For the novice, one can start with just one different detail. Like if you love black, why not play with colour – lets say fuchsia, and combine it with black. If you like wearing block colors, why not try a printed top? It’s the idea of adapting to new things. After all, fashion is about change. You don’t need to sacrifice your style, you just simply like it to evolve 🙂

EOF: 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?
AJ: Oh my, toughest question ever. I’d pick my accessories box. You can do wonders to your look just by adding a necklace or a brooch.

EOF: What is your favourite vintage find, and why do you think your devils approve?

AJ: Its my Gianni Versace bomber jacket from the 80s.  You wouldn’t believe how super cheap I got it. Its my number one treasured find because its real leather, it has chain mail, looks very contemporary,  the color of the leather goes with anything, and it gives an instant edge to any look.

EOF: We have received a lot of botched up advice on fashion in our lives, but we have always stayed pure to what is inside. What is the worst fashion advice you’ve ever been given?

AJ: Men shouldn’t wear women’s clothing.

EOF: For us, fashion is definitely an escape, and the style or look we wear is the story being told. You are an expert in storytelling, with a seemingly eternal well of inspiration. With almost 400 looks on LOOKBOOK, dark we ask – do you have a favourite?

AJ: Every new look I post is my favourite.

EOF: Here at The Eye of Faith, we like to think of ourselves as soldiers marching for a better tomorrow. Are there any causes or struggles in your life that you are fighting for?

AJ: I am a huge advocate of Filipino fashion so as much as I can I like to wear Filipino designers in my looks. That way I can help promote their names in the international scene via LOOKBOOK.

EOF: What sort of things can the readers of The Eye of Faith expect from Andre Judd in the future?

AJ: Expect the unexpected 🙂

A Rebel By Any Other Name Would Still Be As Sweet…


At THE EYE OF FAITH, we are always looking to reinvent the classics.  Looking to the past for our inspiration, we sought refuge in classic rebel gear.   We bring you a page from our LOOKBOOK to demonstrate our take on a classic.

James Dean’s iconic red jacket, jeans, and t-shirt combo was our immediate go-to, and we decided to give it a bit of an E.O.F. spin to bring it back to life for today.


We found this sick rebel red Member’s Only windbreaker which we aptly named “James” for the collection, and paired it with an +E.O.F. ORIGINAL+ design which many of our peers have noted looked uncannily like a view of the ocean seen from outer space- thus “Mystical Ocean Mystery” became its title! Cosmic ocean rebel, indeed!


A simple pair of vintage pleated trousers in royal blue brings it back to that classic 1950s all-American vibe we were drawing from in the first place.

And our look wouldn’t be complete without our Grateful Dead Converse kicks.  A cool tie-dye limited edition shoe to take that classic 1950s feel and make it ‘now’!


Definitely think we made a splash here! Really love the combination, and how easily an old classic can be completely redefined to fit in to today’s world, and no doubt, tomorrow’s as well!

It’s all about the spirit you bring to it, and we’re coming full force with number one original rebel attitude!

Voodoo Mambo Dandy


Having set up an account with LOOKBOOK to track down the world’s most stylish exhibitionist stylistas and fashion witches, we thought it was time to display our own fine feathers. These are some looks that we couldn’t include on the site, because of the three photo policy on LOOKBOOK (it’s just not enough!).

This look is all about shunning out your devils. Even on the sunniest days, the devil inside can tear you apart. Counter that evil mambo jumbo in your ear with a hard and heavy dose of style. It’s easy to feel a little lost in paradise. The shirt is a vintage Foster shirt, but our favourite piece is the 1980s Pierre Cardin Beach Jacket!

This is the kind of outfit that goes best with some 1960s tropicalia to really soothe those woes, so we got you just the thing!

If you’ve never checked out LOOKBOOK, give it a whirl. It’s an amazing platform for the world’s untapped style superstars to connect and show their stuff. The site has users “HYPING” each new look that tickles their fancy, so we hope ours can do just that! We’re also hoping to pick up some Fans, as well!

So enough talking, and more Hyping! Click here to visit us.

CHECK OUT OUR {SHOP} for these and MORE!
