{MUSIC MINUTE} Rainbow Melody: Joni Mitchell, Mama Cass and Mary Travers.

 

We are so excited to announce that we will be costuming “HAIR” at Hamilton Theatre Inc. this May, and for the first time in ages your boys at The Eye of Faith will be gracing the stage as peace-loving, flower-wearing, fringe-flinging New York City hippies during the Summer of Love!

So to celebrate the news, we thought we’d bring back this {MUSIC MINUTE} that we originally posted back in 2012!

We love this performance from the 6.26.1969 episode of “The Mama Cass Show”! Like, the fact that a celebrity like Mama Cass existed and went as far to hosting her own T.V. show is so flipping cool! This performance features Mama Cass herself, Canadian Lady of the Canyon Joni Mitchell and Peter, Paul & Mary’s own Mary Travers. It’s a beautiful song, and they all look beyond great!

Its a great way to kick-off our dive into the rabbit-hole of 60s psychedelic glory, and we can’t wait! We will be posting more inspirations in the days and months to come!

Also in the spirit of The Eye of Faith and our union of the {past},{present}, and {future} check out how remarkable of a parallel it is between the fashion donned by especially Mama Cass and Joni Mitchell align with Chloe’s latest S/S 16 showcase in Paris!

What’s more is that the Claire Waight Keller’s Chloe collection is actual ly an ode to the 90s (after all, 60s bohemian fashions had a bit of a revival in the 90s), so we are actually being treated to quite the smoothie of fashion style, going to show how important it is, and empowering it is to have all eyes open, and take in all we can to create a richer, and ultimately more beautiful life!

+PARES CUM PARIBUS+ VINTAGE FASHION VIDEO from The Eye of Faith

Greetings followers, friends, and I don’t know you, but Greetings anyway!

As you know, we absolutely love a sense of mystery, a glimpse in the dark at what may or may not have been , and we wanted to combine this unique E.O.F. sensibility in a one-of-a-kind fashion video experience.

We aptly titled it +PARES CUM PARIBUS+ , meaning “Let birds of a feather flock together” in Latin; very apropos for us here at The Eye of Faith, because every day it seems we are growing in strength with our numbers.

So in spirit of our eternal goal +PARES CUM PARIBUS+ was made.

We were inspired by a classic; the ever stylish and silicious Ms. Audrey Horne of a town called Twin Peaks. Knowing that bad girls do it well, we took our favorite model Lydia, and placed her in a dreamy netherworld close to our own, but far enough away that unusual things might start to happen.

And like most cases, we just can’t be sure if The Young Lady could perhaps be but a lonesome ghostly memory permeating through the Universe’s frequencies…

Close enough to home, but far enough away that you could forget about it all together – that’s what The Eye of Faith is about, and that’s where we always aim.

Let us know what you think, and if you share our same feathers please share it in your circles and lets let this vision soar!

So, with that said, please enjoy the show!

E.O.F. Snapshot of the Day {January 7, 2013}

hunter s thompson 1960s
Hunter S. Thompson {circa 1960s} at his typewriter with pipe and wicked graphic surf shorts!

Greetings friends, fans, and followers . . .

The holiday season has come and gone, and we are back to the writing desk, much like our good friend Hunter S. Thompson up there. We thought this was a great image to welcome ourselves back on, as it reminds us all that style is something we take everywhere we go; It is a reflection, a representation, of one’s own unique persona.

Even putting himself up to the grind and working away, a man like Hunter S. Thompson (and like so many other great writers) only needs to rely on his supernatural sensibility of self to carry him through the long hours of the day. While I’m sure he never envisioned himself as a style guru of any sort, this man is looked at time and time again for his bad ass All-American jamboree of pattern and real casual cool.

Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proff to those who need it that the tyranny of “the rat race” is not yet final.

-Hunter S. Thompson

All it takes is letting go a little . . .

We hope to help you with these, and other dilemmas and mysteries of style and self in the coming New Year! Just keep it cool, OK?!

This year we hope to divulge in more rebel realities, playboy prophecies, magic America, gothic nuances, and many more vintage memories and musings informing and quickly building tomorrow’s fashion landscape . . .

With the help of {theEye} there’s no going wrong (and no going back, for that matter)!

See you shortly. . .

Most Sincerely,

{theEye}

Johan Renck Brings 1960s French Sci-Fi Cool to Latest Ad for Perrier

Something about this new ad for Perrier really brings me back in time. The french brand has impressed us before with a series of videos featuring legendary style icon Dita Von Teese taking us on a glamorously risque tour of her body and the elusively decadent Perrier Mansion.

Entitled “The Drop“, this latest film continues on the blazing train of creative ingenuity, with this brilliant bend of 1960s French Sci-Fi aesthetic glory. The auteur helming the creative vision is Johan Renck, a director of Breaking Bad, and Walking Dead.

We love the gold space suit and artful editing – it’s just a scorching hot day on Earth, and and only one woman who can cool us down…We also love the India Inspiration!

The visuals immediately reminded us of Roman Copolla‘s 2001 film “CQ” that featured supermodel Angela Lindvall as Dragonfly in a fake French 1960s Sci-Fi film. The film was hardly a blimp on the radar, which is a shame, because it features some great design, a wicked soundtrack, and really fun and playful acting (especially Lindvall).

What’s better than bringing the idea of a low-budget French Sci-Fi film in 1969 Paris to life??! Can’t think of anything else at the moment…

Perrier‘s latest campaign,”The Drop“, takes the 1960s sci-fi aesthetic to a whole new level, reinventing it for 2012, but staying clearly reminiscent. With an artist like Renck involved, it’s hard to go wrong. But it really is an artful eye that makes this such a captivating and clever little film.

Until next time,

“The Last Night of the World” by Ray Bradbury for Esquire Magazine {Feb. 1951}

[photo courtesy of Esquire Magazine]

“What would you do if you knew this was the last night of the world?”

“What would I do; you mean, seriously?”

“Yes, seriously.”

“I don’t know — I hadn’t thought. She turned the handle of the silver coffeepot toward him and placed the two cups in their saucers.

He poured some coffee. In the background, the two small girls were playing blocks on the parlor rug in the light of the green hurricane lamps. There was an easy, clean aroma of brewed coffee in the evening air.

“Well, better start thinking about it,” he said.

“You don’t mean it?” said his wife.

He nodded.

And so begins this tantalizingly provocative and cognitively delicious short story by the great Ray Bradbury. Originally published for Esquire Magazine in the February 1951 edition of the magazine, the story has recently been posted on the magazine’s website in honor of his June 5th passing.

The author wrote 12 stories in total for the magazine; this one in particular, entitled “The Last Night of the World“, couldn’t be more appropriate for our current social climate. Bradbury always had a way with words, and since  early childhood, his works have always inspired and pushed the boundaries of the imagination.

The “Midwest Surrealist” pushed the boundaries of Science Fiction and Fantasy beyond the borders of the genre into the world of timeless classics by referencing mythology in his work:

First of all, I don’t write science fiction. I’ve only done one science fiction book and that’s Fahrenheit 451, based on reality. It was named so to represent the temperature at which paper ignites. Science fiction is a depiction of the real. Fantasy is a depiction of the unreal. So “Martian Chronicles” is not science fiction, it’s fantasy. It couldn’t happen, you see? That’s the reason it’s going to be around a long time — because it’s a Greek myth, and myths have staying power.

[SOURCE]

Some of our all-time favorites works include “The Halloween Tree“, “Something Wicked This Way Comes“, and “The Martian Chronicles“- without either, The Eye of Faith may not have even existed! {Now thats scary!}

We are deeply saddened by the loss of this one-of-a-kind talent, but please enjoy the rest of the story, “The Last Night of the World”, in his honor courtesy of Esquire.
