eof snapshot- feb 28 2014- child star- vintage mens fashion inspiration- bad ass americana

CHILD STAR 

Look at this kid. What’s his deal? 

He was arrested on Valentine’s Day, of all days, also . . . 

California Boys are undeniable, after all. 

It’s all in the hair. Look at it go.

All slicked back, and such.

If this boy can get it done.

So can you!

I believe. Have faith also. 

Keeping your own personal eye of faith helps conjure your destiny. 

Believe it or not. You can do anything.

But best stick to being you.

STYLE {WISE} : Rebel Noir, and “Crime in the Streets” (1956)

eof style wise - vintage menswear supremo - crime in the streets 1956

This 1956 classic had movie star Sal Mineo playing a street wise gang member just a year after his Oscar nominated turn as a misunderstood teenager in the legendary “Rebel Without a Cause”.

The film also featured a young bad-ass John Cassavetes before he was pawning off Mia Farrow to Satan or directing his own killer films.

The look of the film is, what we like to call, Rebel Noir :

eof style wise - this is how we do it - rebel rebel - crime in the streets 1956

eof style wise - call of duty - street gang style - rebel wild - crime in the streets 1956

eof style wise- alley cat blues - classic street gang 1950s vintage menswear - crime in the streets 1956

“Crime in the Streets” promised to tell “the whole story of the Rock’n’Roll generation”, which seemed to be on everybody’s mind. Who were these outcast teens in their washed denim pants, flashy sports coats, and slicked back hair? I’m sure somewhere deep down inside there’s a reason behind the madness.

The film plays better than one might expect, and is definitely a classic of the 1950s street gang film genre. Definitely a must see for real players of vintage style reincarnation. All the time. Anytime.

{Music Minute} “Shaung Shaung Yan” by Den Bai Ying

Found my In the Mood for Love soundtrack lying around at home.

It’s been a while since I’ve listen to it. I had boughten it high school, enticed by the album cover and vaguely noting some Awards buzz that had been circulating on the internet at that time, I thought my disposable teenage income was worth the $25 I remember it costing. . .

To say the least, I was enthralled immediately by the solemn tone of the soundtrack mixed with eclectic vintage oldies that ranged from Nat King Cole to this cool Chinese track entitled “Shaung Shaung Yan” by Dan Bai Ying.

It brings me to a place. I like that place. It conjures up images from the film which are as haunting as every Wong Kar Wai film always is.

He always brings a stylistic edge that is so cinematic, but simple, and absolutely graceful in its visual prose and chemistry in action. The film is a menagerie of mood through colour, and watch how drastically and dramatically colour plays a role in his movies.

This matched with the cuts and characters of the clothing chosen for each scene, and you have a virtual vortex of vintage inspiration before your eyes. . .

I like to conjure this film when I want to feel cool and relaxed but sophisticated and worldly.

Slick suits, hair, graphic ties, and sun glasses at night for the boys; and for the ladies, try some Asian inspiration with a glamorous 1960s edge that always gives off the ultimate sense of cool. Give everything a tropical edge to make it true.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Meeting Olive from “BULLETS OVER BROADWAY”

Bullets Over Broadway

Bullets Over Broadway was a great film from 1994, which garnered a second Academy Award for Dianne Wiest, as well as six other nominations including Best Director for Woody Allen. The cast also includes veteran actors such as Tracey Ullman, Jim Broadbent, Chazz Palminteri, and Mary-Louise Parker.

Starring John Cussack as a neurotic playwright in the 1920s, the film follows the follies of making a work of art, and the many pains of compromises of getting a respectable work of art produced. If the title isn’t indication enough, things quickly fall out of whack as the play gets more and more involved with a mobster and his gang.

The film is undoubtedly one of Allen’s best, and if you enjoyed the 1920s period recreation done in Midnight in Paris, you will be sure to love the scenery here – New York, flappers, the 1920s, Art Deco  (everything in swing with the design trends of today, in fact) – and if nothing else, as you will see from this clip, Jennifer Tilly really goes out of her way to steal the show as Olive, the naive and talkative dancer turned Broadway actress.

Bullets Over Broadway (1994)

Some of her lines are the very best. And it is no surprise she got nominated for an Oscar, too, for the crazy kooky character she developed here. Cussack is also great as the Allen-type character, making all the wools, tweeds, vests, ties, messy hair, and academic looks of a playwright come right to life.

If you are a style savant, comedy aficionado, oscar follower, or simply the bored lonely type, then Bullets Over Broadway is the film for you!

Check it out! Hope you enjoy!

Most sincerely,

{theEye}
