Leigh – Mercer Hotel

I met Leigh on Wednesday night at the Mercer…

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

These cuties are Au Revoir Simone from Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They DJed the Refinery 29/Madewell party last night. Did I mention that “Paris” – by Friendly Fires ft. Au Revoir Simone (Aeroplane remix) is one of Mr. Newton’s tracks of the year for 2009?? That song is amazing – it sounds best turned up loud…



Making Out Well

Hi – I was out last night at the Very Vintage Holiday Party thrown by Refinery 29 and Madewell…at the Madewell store on Broadway in Soho. This was just in time for some last minute Christmas shopping…and…all of the proceeds from the sale of the vintage pieces went to BARC – the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition. So even if the “gifts” you purchased were just for little ol’ you…well you still made a doggy or kitty happy somewhere in the ‘burg. What could be better than that? xo Mr. Newton

Free Ranya!

Ranya Mordanova’s fees for runway, advertising, and editorial have no doubt all skyrocketed in the past year. Now you can have her for free! My friend Lacee Swan is giving away the Ranya T-shirt you see here on her site right now. The contest ends this Friday at noon…hurry over and enter your name and email for a chance to win. You saw me wearing this shirt on Mr. Newton earlier this week. Well, not this exact shirt – you’ll get a brand new one in your size! Mine is still at the bottom of my Paris laundry bag somewhere and likely a bit smelly to actually put in the mail to you. xx

Ranya & Me

That’s me – Mr. Newton – on the street in Paris recently in a custom-designed Ranya tee by Lacee Swan. Thanks to Craig for the photo! xxx


I Heart New York

Hi there – it’s a cold and rainy day in New York. I was just sitting here at the Mr. Newton HQ looking at some magazines I bought this week – good day for that. The new issue of Monocle is great – I especially love their Travel Top 50 list which covers everything from beef curries to European high speed rail service to design-conscious Japanese capsule hotels. I’ve also been torturing myself by flipping through the new summer fashion issues of Russh and Vogue Australia - nice season reversal down there guys! Also – I was really excited at the magazine shop this week to see that 5 of my photos made it into the current “00′s” issue of New York magazine. My shots were part of their decade-spanning timeline of Naughties fashion trends. In case you’re wondering…my snaps were used for “skinny jeans”, “ripped skinny jeans”, “fur again”, “fatigues”, and “thigh-high boots”. Thanks NY mag! xx Mr. Newton
