Mr. Newton – at The Ace Hotel, Palm Springs

That’s me – Mr. Newton – at The Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs, CA on Sunday April 22nd during weekend 2 of Coachella 2012. Not to get all personal style blogger on you…but in case you were wondering…my t-shirt is by BOY London – purchased during an all-day shopping and research mission at Selfridges, London on March 14th, 2012…backpack is the new J.Crew “Abingdon”…shorts are from American Apparel – a pair of their midnight navy School Boy long pants that I cut off myself in my hotel room. x

Desert Diaries

Hi everyone – I’m in Palm Springs, CA this weekend for Coachella 2012! I’m heading out now to hit a couple of pool parties this afternoon…but check back here for more updates soon! You can also see lots of my newest-and-bestest Coachella photos (daily updates!) at! xx

Splendor In The Grass

If you’ve been to Coachella, you know that there’s so much that goes on during the weekend apart from the festival itself. Primary among these activities are the daytime parties – fashion parties, pool parties, BBQs, hotel parties, etc. The best ones are low-key affairs with carefully curated guest lists – these are posh pool parties, not pounding house music pool parties. My two favorite parties of the whole weekend both happened on Saturday (April 16th) – the Mulberry BBQ and pool party at the Gene Autry pool at The Parker and the Phillip Lim pool party at an amazing private house he’d rented in the hills above the valley. (And when I say amazing, I’m talkin’ palm trees, white grand piano, sunken bar, a pool that came almost up to the edge of the cliff, and a stunning view of all of Palm Springs below – très desert chic.) I brought my camera along of course and now here are my photos from these two parties. There are loads more of my snaps from both parties at too – if you want to see everything! xo

I’m heading out shortly to the Mulberry BBQ and pool party at The Parker, Palm Springs. More Coachella photos soon! xx

Down In The Valley

Hi there – although I love big cities like New York, Tokyo, London, etc. I also love being out in the middle of nowhere. It’s great to have that balance…to be out in nature…and see how the other half lives. To that end then, I’ve headed out to the California desert for Coachella 2011! And yeah, Palm Springs has a few too many spas, great restaurants, and cute shops to truly be the middle of nowhere…but whatevs, I need some amenities when I rough it!
I’m heading out to shoot soon and will be posting new street style photos all weekend – so check back soon for those! You might also want to follow me on Twitter – gonna tweet whenever I can – though wireless signals come and go down in the valley… xx Mr. Newton
