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!).

The Mysterious Case of the Handsome Time Travelling Hipster Dude . . .

Can you spot the fashion time traveler in this photograph taken in 1941 at the re-opening of the South Forks Bridge in Gold Bridge, British Columbia?

You wouldn’t be the only who spotted the tall dude on the right sporting an edgy pair of shades, and some sort of graphic-T. In fact, the debate is still on as to whether we have a real life time traveler, sophisticated photo manipulation, or just pure fashion forward realness!

The photo was part of the Official Virtual Museum of Canada, which showcases and exhibits thousands of photographs of everyday life throughout the history of Canada. Featured in the exhibit Their Past Lives Here, the photograph has rallied millions of believers, and was featured as a case study in viral Internet phenomenon at the Museums and the Web 2011 conference.

Further research has confirmed the gentleman’s “graphic T” as a sweater with a sewn-on emblem worn in sports, and the “futuristic” sun glasses would actually be seen only several years later on Barbara Stanwyck in the iconic film-noir – Double Indemnity.

Seems like the town’s quarterback maybe jumped practice to check out the new bridge. It says a lot that this gentleman has become such a phenomenon, really. Whether time traveling or not, either way you look at it, the Time Traveler really goes to show the power of style on our perception.

Time is but a rigid system of organization, and really doesn’t condemn a time period to a strict set of rules as most Costume and Clothing History likes to dictate. Whether 1941 or 2012, the Time Traveler in this photo has stood out so much for his unique one-of-a-kind sensibility and ability to stand out in a crowd. The mainstream moves in one direction, but there will always be individuals doing it their own way.

Here at The Eye of Faith we’re always looking to the past and searching  all over for great vintage finds. The power of style is that it is absolutely timeless, so whenever we feel like going back in time we can dress the part.

You can too! Be your own Fashion Time Traveler, and don’t let your perception of time hold you down. Everyone loves a good story, and who knows, maybe in 70 years you will be going viral too!

Let’s transcend time!

Know of any other fashion time travellers?
