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):

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).

Angel specializes in custom handpainted clothing. Most of our kids shirts (below) are by Justine Brown of London, England:

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.

Additional artists, as well as actors paying homage through spoken word performances, will be announced soon. (Update Oct. 26: Vancouver actor Seth Rogen, Quebec chanteuse-songwriter Coeur de Pirate and American rocker Courtney Love have been added to the tribute concert.)

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

Before Cohen died, he did an interview with David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker. A podcast of Mr. Cohen’s final interview — hear Leonard talk about his impending death — is here. Remnick’s full New Yorker piece, with insightful comments from Bob Dylan about Cohen’s “genius” as a songwriter, is here.
