Anita Pallenberg: E.O.F. Divinity.

The Hollywood Actress may come and go; whether or not she leaves behind a handful of memorable performances, a Style Maven is iconic, and we see reflections of their taste decades after they’re gone. Beauty, class, and 1 of a kind style sensibility we find in Anita Pallenberg.

“I’d wear that [second-hand red fox fur coat] to modelling jobs with just my underwear, boots and a bag because you couldn’t leave your clothes lying around. The other models would steal them!” Anita Pallenberg

A model in the early 60s, Anita made her way into movies and rock and roll. Starring in such cult favourites as Barbarella, Performance, and Candy. We love her spin as the great tyrant in Barbarella, where her voice is dubbed yet her appeal cuts through the screen. This exotic alien villian is the perfect yin to Jane Fonda’s yang in the 1968 cult classic.

Style maven Anita Pallenberg’s influence over The Rolling Stones is clear. Being the mother of rock n’roller Keith Richards first 3 children, the two were never married. But, her influence during the Rolling Stones establishing days are evident up to this very day. Not only did she find partnership with Richards, but Pallenberg once courted the late founding member of the Stones, Brian Jones. Perhaps these men rubbed off on her, but we feel this gal held her own amongst these men. She charmed and captivated the boys and the world for years.

Whether yesterday or tomorrow we know the ‘look’ and ‘vibe’ of Anita Pallenberg will be appreciated forever, because an idols like this doesn’t come around just every day.

Sincerely,

The Iceman Cometh: Vivienne Westwood Fall/Winter 2012

If only everybody had their hearts and heads   with the now 70-year-old Fashion legend, Vivienne Westwood. The world would most definitely be a better place, there’s no question about it. Westwood is always promoting her politics and philosophies, and has made it a staple to her work and persona.

This time her collection featured defrosting models whose fake beards and slick comb overs received a dusting of ice and snow. Inspired by David Attenborough’s “Frozen Planet”, an opus to the frozen corners of the Globe, and the struggle it’s taking for the wildlife of these regions to survive their rapidly changing environment.

 “We live in this mad world. If politicians would only see climate change as a priority, we might have a chance…the financial crisis is a symptom of the climate change. We have to stop it or else we really are an endangered species. “

-Vivienne Westwood

Does the state of the planet really not matter that much to us, that the race to make a profit could outweigh our compassion or respect for to the world we live in? There’s going to be a point when the World must come together to work these issues out, but until that happens, these problems will never disappear.

Inspired by Arctic Expeditions, Cool Athleticism, and that signature Westwood twist, the collection foresees that ice man cometh to a city near you.  Westwood has created a modern adventurerer fearless of peril,  unbitten by the frost, and marching to the same geo-political drumbeat of Westwood’s imagination.

Are you ready to fight the cold? Having not been touched by snowfall for the most part of winter (Scary, right?), it really makes us wonder what’s next to come? Not to mention, plenty of reminiscing of the days of Winter when you could look out your window and see the yard freshly covered in snow.

“To hell with the truth! As the history of the world proves, the truth has no bearing on anything. It’s irrelevant and immaterial, as the lawyers say. The lie of a pipe dream is what gives life to the whole misbegotten mad lot of us, drunk or sober.”

Eugene O’Neil, The Iceman Cometh.

We pray those days haven’t yet passed. Till that day we’re just going to keep holding on! We’ll never let go!


Yours truly,

-The Eye x
