Goodbye Summer. Hello sweater weather.

Fall-Winter 2017 collection

What seemed like the endless summer finally came to an end a week ago. Starting mid June, the rain stopped and we had an unusually hot, dry summer. No rain for two months. Fun in the sun. We wore light summer clothes all summer. But now:

Goodbye sleeveless tops, shorts and sandals that we wore every day. Even at night.

Goodbye fresh local summer berries and cherries.

Goodbye swims in lakes heated by the hot summer sun.

Goodbye to cruising with the top down on the convertible, listening to this song.

Angel has dozens of Desigual sweaters & scarves, including those below from the Fall 2017 collection.

And hello sweaters and warmer jackets, which we’ve been selling at Angel all week, since it turned cooler. Soon, the leaves will begin to fall and we’ll dig out our rainboots, gloves, winter hats. But not yet. The sun is out today and will continue through the weekend. You might not want to swim, but find a spot out of the wind and enjoy the last of the late-summer rays.

Here are a few Desigual sweaters, coats & scarves to keep you warm (the Desigual Fall-Winter 2017 collection is on sale @ 10% off, with up to 50% off Desigual from previous seasons):

Today’s music is a song from 2013, Sweater Weather, by The Neighbourhood:

Ain’t No Sunshine, a classic live 1972 performance by Bill Withers:

And lastly, here’s a new bittersweet video for the song Traveling Light by the late, great Canadian poet & troubadour, Leonard Cohen, who died almost a year ago:

To mark the anniversary of his passing, there will be a memorial concert in his native Montreal on Nov. 6, 2017, called Tower of Song.

The musical guests will include: Elvis Costello, Lana Del Rey, Feist, Philip Glass, k.d. lang, Damien Rice, Sting, Patrick Watson, Wesley Schultz & Jeremiah Fraites from The Lumineers, Leonard’s son Adam Cohen, and the Ballets Jazz De Montreal.

His son Adam recalls: “My father left me with a list of instructions before he passed: ‘Put me in a pine box next to my mother and father. Have a small memorial for close friends and family in Los Angeles…and if you want a public event do it in Montreal.’ I see this concert as a fulfillment of my duties to my father that we gather in Montreal to ring the bells that still can ring.”

The event will benefit the Canada Council for the Arts, the Council of Arts and Letters of Quebec, and the Montreal Arts Council.

Tower of Song will mark the first anniversary of Leonard’s passing and commence a week of celebrations honouring Cohen in Montreal. As previously announced, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal’s new exhibit, “Leonard Cohen: Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything,” will open to the public November 9. The exhibit was approved by the late songwriter before his passing and will celebrate Cohen’s life and work. Select media and top tier Tower of Song ticket holders will be invited to a preview of the exhibit on November 7.

Concert tickets go on sale Saturday Sept. 23 at noon, Eastern Standard Time, @ EVENKO.CA AND 1-855-310-2525

Tarzan wasn’t a ladies man…Clark Kent, now there was a real gent,” sang Canadian band Crash Test Dummies in Superman’s Song, their 1991 hit:

Superman, now 77, was co-created by Canadian artist Joseph Shuster, who was born in Toronto and was the cousin of Wayne Shuster, of the Canadian comedy duo Wayne and Shuster. Joseph Shuster passed away in 1992 at the age of 78. He once said that Metropolis was modelled on Toronto and the Daily Planet was inspired by the newspaper Shuster delivered as a kid — The Toronto Star….Vancouver actor Ryan Reynolds is filming Deadpool 2 in Vancouver.

Desigual for Burning Man this weekend

There’s no turning back now. The Man will burn this weekend. Tens of thousands of people gather each year at Black Rock City, a city in the flat Nevada desert that will disappear after this long weekend. Until next year. It’s a place where art meets survival camp conditions and dazzles Burners, as Burning Man attendees refer to themselves.

A number of people visited Angel in recent weeks to buy Desigual pieces they were planning to wear at Burning Man. We don’t have any photos of those people. Instead, here are a few pics of this year’s Man to be Burned (he’s in a handcrafted-wood pagoda) and some of the desert work styles of the folks who help make Burning Man happen:

Desigual is characterized by its different, optimistic and colorful designs. The company began operating in 1984. La Vida es Chula (Life is Cool) is Desigual’s slogan and way of looking at fashion and life. It’s an enthusiastic, positive and optimistic message that nails its colors to the mast.

Angel is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. carrall&powell.1886We’re  on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, where Vancouver began. The historic photo ( left) shows what the location of my store looked like in 1886 (click on photo to enlarge).

Today’s video is a live version of Wichita Lineman by Glen Campbell, a great guitarist and studio musician who became a country-pop superstar; Campbell died this week at the age of 81:

My favourite version of the song is this slightly off-key performance on New Year’s Eve five years ago, by Michael Stipe (formerly the lead singer of REM) and Patti Smith:

Patti Smith wrote a lovely piece this week about the passing of her “buddy” — actor/playwright Sam Shepard — in The New Yorker. Music nowadays seems to be dominated by DJs such as Calvin Harris, now a Scottish record music producer whose new song, Feels, features a superstar trio: Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean

And I like this video for Where R Ü Now by DJs Diplo, Skrillex & Canada’s Justin Bieber. I wish my visits to the supermarket were like this:

Click here to watch The New York Times video of Bieber, Diplo and Skrillex explaining how the song was made, using animation to explain the song’s beats and unique computer-generated sounds.

The Endless Summer 2017 Sale

After six weeks of sunshine, it might seem like we’re having an endless summer (despite our first rain late last week, it’s back to sunshine again all this week). And in the fashion retail business, we’re getting ready to transition into the Fall-Winter 2017 season by August, so we’re having a (seemingly) Endless Summer Sale — our biggest of the year — to make room for the new Fall collection from Barcelona-based Desigual.

Angel is offering 30% to 50% off the remainder of our entire Summer 2017 collection from Desigual, albeit with limited sizes in some styles.

Here are few of the Desigual styles we have on sale for men, women & kids, including the CIRCINI jacket, which is a mix of orange and pink, much like the iconic 1964 poster for the film The Endless Summer featured at the top of this post (the poster was designed by John Van Hamersveld, one of my classmates at Chouinard art school in Los Angeles in the mid 1960s). Also on sale is another great Desigual jacket from this summer called FLORENCIA, which is pink with embroidery front and back (photo below). The entire Summer 2017 collection is on sale at 30% off.

Desigual CIRCINI jacket features orange and pink and has embroidery front and back. It’s now on sale @ 30% off.

Today’s video is the spicy hit of the summer — Despacito by Luis Fonsi of Puerto Rico, featuring Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee. The song, released earlier this year, has been viewed more than 2.8 billion times on YouTube and streamed a total of 4.6 billion times, making it the most streamed song of all time. And the recent remix with Canadian Justin Bieber — viewed almost 500 million times — has helped get the song played on radio stations across Canada and the U.S. The Colombian producers of the song, Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo, breakdown the mechanics and dynamics in a video here.

The woman featured in the video is Zuleyka Rivera, 29, a former Puerto Rico beauty queen chosen Miss Universe in 2006. She started as a model at 14 and currently guest hosts two TV programs while based in Miami: Telemundo’s Un Nuevo Dia and Univision’s Despierta America. A single mother raising a five-year-old son, Sebastián, she has her own clothing line and three fragrance lines. Wow, she sounds like the next Desigual brand ambassador.

This is Love by Lana Del Rey. She doesn’t get much airplay (despite 73 million hits on Love on YouTube), but this video fits perfectly with the song, a minor masterpiece:

Here, Lana Del Ray dances on top of the Hollywood sign with Canadian singer The Weeknd. The song hasn’t won me over, but I love the video. The Weeknd sings: “Take off all your clothes,” before Lana slides off the D at the end of the Hollywood sign. Is it a happy  ending? Hey, it’s Hollywood.

Does Lana share bandwidth with David Lynch? We’re not sure, yet:

Wow. We’ve had two steady weeks of sunshine, with more expected this week and next. We like that. We also like the fact that Bono and the Edge of U2 were the surprise opening act on Canada Day last Saturday in Ottawa. They performed One:

We also like the new Bruno Mars hit, That’s What I Like, which he’ll be performing in Vancouver later this month, on July 26:

Last weekend, Robin Leveille caught a surprise visit of orcas to Whytecliff Park  in West Vancouver. His buddy posted this video, which we like:
