Indian Summer

I really do love that living in New York can often feel quite surreal…as if you are walking around inside a movie or music video or editorial fashion shoot. For example – Lindsey is in Istanbul at the moment, but just the other day I spotted her walking up Lafayette Street dressed like this. She had a big bag because she was doing errands for her trip. She sat it by my feet…leaned against the wall…and we shot these on the spot in like 5 minutes. xx Mr. Newton

In The Mood

Hey – I was up at Pamela Love’s studio recently to shoot her photo for a project I’m working on. While I was there though, I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos of her awesome mood board. It seriously is one of the coolest mood boards that I’ve ever seen – and I’ve seen a lot of them. I thought you guys would want to see it too! Click on the images to pop them open large and take a closer look at it…my favorite bit is the old padlock. No wonder her jewelry is so amazing… (Speaking of amazing – did I mention that I’m now on Twitter???) xx

Just Coasting

Summer anthem much??

(P.S. – I’m usually a big fan of singles rather than albums…but in this case (Crazy for You – Best Coast) you should really buy the whole album…most of their songs sound the same…and I mean that as a compliment…the whole album is like one big hazy, sunny, distorted, fuzzy, pop dream…it’s great to listen to the whole thing straight thru.
P.P.S. – Have you ever gone to the beach and laid on your back with your head facing the water and done the upside down “the ocean is now the sky” thing that they do at the beginning of this video? It’s really freaky and cool…it’s like waves are breaking across the sky…I just did it a few days ago at Jones Beach…haha! Yes, I’m a dork. I don’t care – it’s summer and I’m having fun… xx)
