This Masquerade


Last night on the Lower East Side, Yves Saint Laurent decided to rent out an old Gothic synagogue and throw a Parisienne-inspired masquerade party. It was the launch party for their new fragrance (itself rather conveniently called Parisienne), but despite all of the Left Bank window dressing this party felt like nothing so much as old school pre-recession downtown NYC. A luxury brand (YSL) paid for a full open bar…the suits mingled with the models, hipsters, and misfits…Mr. Newton and Bronques shot photos…the MisShapes and Alexandra Richards played awesome music…and everything seemed right with the world for one night. Vive la fete! xxx

Flea Market Finds

Hey – I shot these photos last weekend when I was out at the Dumbo Flea. (Dumbo is an acronym to describe the Brooklyn neighborhood that sits down under the Manhattan bridge overpass – if ya don’t know, now ya know.) There’s just something that seems so “perfect fall weekend day in the city” about going and poking around a great flea market. If you don’t have a sweetie to wander around with you, you suddenly want one…if you don’t have a cute New York loft to decorate with antiques and unique finds, well you suddenly want one of those too. I was mostly there for the pizza though. Dave Sclarow and his crew at Pizza Moto are making what may be the very best pizza in the city at the moment – a real find with little effort and no heavy lifting. xx Mr. Newton

Native American Summer

Short skirts, bare legs, tank tops, denim shorts, floral prints – and no one even wearing a jacket, much less a coat. Believe it or not, these photos were all shot last week in New York! We had what was likely our last blast of near summer-like weather…and the streets were packed with loads of kids out enjoying it while it lasted. I ran into lots of friends, had some great food, hit some flea markets, and saw Terry Richardson at least twice a day (he seems to enjoy walking around downtown a lot – smart man). Of course I had my camera with me all week and snapped street style photos along the way – check ’em out. xx Mr. Newton
