All Eyes Are On Fall

Trending this season, the symbol or suggestion of the eye is gracing everything from fashion to lighting.  In some cases it seems what's old is new again.  In some cases we're seeing this image with a fresh eye.

It all began with Victorian lovers eye jewelry.  Our fascination with the eye, the window to our soul, kept secret lovers close, or symbolized the grief of a loved one lost.

Centuries later ~ we're still finding fascination with this image.  We were taken with the evil eye and it's  mystical and ethnic roots. Now, we're turning our attention once again to the eye but with more of a surrealist slant.

Scratched porcelain makes a great foil for the symbol with many meanings; seductiveness, mysticism, universal connectedness?

Piero Fornesetti, like Dali were in the forefront of creating "eye"conic images that have stood the test of time and brought inspiration to many.

 Kenzo did an "eye popping" collection this season and put the peepers on just about everything!

Something mesmerizing about this one, like you could become transfixed by watching the hand go round.  "You are getting sleepy"

I say, the eyes have it!
