#1 CRUSH : THE EYE OF FAITH in the City!

We had the honour of shooting with Style Group for The City of Hamilton in a feature focusing on Hamilton’s burgeoning fashion scene.

Hamilton has always been known as a city of grit and steel, which is often why it ends up the backdrop for so many Hollywood flicks ( ie. Guillermo Del Toro’s Oscar winning picture The Shape of Water is literally littered in Hamilton, and there are so many more!), so its not exactly the first city you think of in Canada when it comes to fashion.

But, according to Statistics Canada, Hamilton is in fact in the top 5 hubs of fashion in Canada – so that’s pretty “eye” opening! We are lucky enough to be one of the city’s featured designers in a short video featuring some of Hamilton’s top designers including yours truly, The Eye of Faith!

Here’s a clip they made of especially for our designs! We were really inspired by a 90s Romeo & Juliet essence with this one and wanted to showcase two head turning looks that were from different worlds, but intrinsically connected. Our models Geoffrey William and Danielle Brandino capture the mood gloriously!

On top of this wicked video, photographer Derrick Van Der Kolk took so many awesome shots that capture the vibrancy of downtown Hamilton, and the unique energy we hope to exude with our designs!

I would die for you
I would die for you
I’ve been dying just to feel you by my side
To know that you’re mine

– Garbage, “#1 Crush”

Here’s a taste . . .

 

 

“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”

-William Shakespeare, “Romeo & Juliet”

Thanks for watching!

Until next time,

THE EYE OF FAITH on GWG TV!!!

THE EYE OF FAITH ON TV- Vintage Photo of Family Watching Television - 1958

Check it out friends and followers!!!! We’re on the TV!!! GWG TV to be exact . . .

You know, its interesting because Paul and myself (Aaron) were talking just a few weeks ago about how cool it would be if some cool bloggers and/or stylistas would find us and record us for an interview, and as it goes, you put it out there. . . and sure enough, it was only a few days before we got an email from the radical Felicia Mancini of Girls with Gunz asking us whether we’d like to be featured in an interview for their website.

How EOF is that?!

Girls with Gunz is a really exciting and provocative force in the city, and we got the chance to team up with them earlier this year for some secret mission-type stuff (its all still very hush hush), so the questions was truly a no-brainer.

The interview was shot in the shop by the wonderful and outrageous China Corvino who really killed it when it came to batting down the hatches and creating a vid that we are proud to be a part of!

For the first time you can sit down with us and get a little piece of who we are, and the things that inspire us, and what set us off on this crazy wild journey that we now call THE EYE OF FAITH!

Little did the ladies know, they were truly making our dreams come true . . .

Thanks Girls with Gunz, and be sure to check them out too, while you’re at it!

MUST-HAVE from their shop?

I want to believe . . . the wicked ‘SCULLY’ T’s.

Until next time,

EOF Approved: Brand New “Dracula” Shades

Check out these amazing specimen of a spectacle we were able to pick up recently! Aren’t they a blast?!

Currently foreseeing hundreds of days of pleasure and riot had in these cool new specs. Definitely digging a sort of Bram Stoker’s Dracula meets Something Wicked This Way Comes carnival creepshow kind of vibe with these ones.

Thought this would be a good opportunity to show off the iwickedly peculiar MAGICA SEXUALIS we just happened to stumble upon. A very exciting and rare addition to our dark collection. The book documents the many strange and fascinating sexual practices that have been attributed to magic and witchcraft (Not a bad subject to brush up on…).

We are very lucky to own a first edition of the book printed in 1934, featuring some immaculate cover illustrations designed by Aubrey Beardsley. They don’t make them like they used to, is for sure.

So, it’s looking like this one is a real two-for. Started you off with one thing, and then you got two. Forgot to show the best part of our brand new bad boys, though!

They do THAT! Bet you didn’t see that one coming…or you did. Either way, gotta love them. A serious pair of shades is a must, especially if you need your talisman to work without anyone seeing!

Wish I had one for everyone, but I think these ones are going to have to be serious keepers.

Till next time,

– The Eye x
