Out and about during the first couple of days at New York Fashion Week – Feb 2014. Also, I shot street style yesterday at 7 shows…so lots more coming soon! Some of these photos were shot outside the main post office in midtown, NYC…there’s an inscription (often referred to as “the postman’s creed”) on that building that reads, “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”…appropriate, no? Henceforth I shall be referring to this as “the street style photographer’s creed”. hehe x
Boiled wool coats…several different types of plaid…Carhartt-esque work trousers…duck boots…pants informally cinched with rope and worn leather belts – they may have been carrying high-tech devices, but there was something decidedly rustic and anachronistic in the air (both on the runway and off) at the Creatures of Comfort show in New York on Thursday 2.6.14. Perhaps the stunning setting for the show influenced the showgoers to dress accordingly? The circa-1899 refectory at The High Line Hotel looks like nothing so much as the dining hall of an enormous country manor. I’m sure that the snowy weather we’ve had recently in New York influenced everyone’s wardrobe decisions as well. Still, this wasn’t the usual vintage-inspired rustic look that I’m accustomed to seeing on the streets of Brooklyn – this was something different. After the show, I even spotted one girl wearing what could only be described as a prairie dress (with boots to match) – bringing a bit of the countryside to the city while remaining demurely feminine. x
Sporty in the City – when an alpine fresh geometric ski sweater meets tailored leather trousers, amazing things happen! x
Here’s @peaceloveshea in New York on 9.12.13…because perforated leather short shorts are always a good idea…
At The Plaza Hotel on November 21st, 2013. Who says Eloise isn’t real?
While shooting at New York Fashion Week last week, I was excited to be shadowed one day by a film and video crew from Gilt Groupe. They came along as I was shooting street style at morning shows at Lincoln Center (at Tory Burch and J. Crew)…and then later in the day shooting at Rodarte and Marc by Marc Jacobs in West Chelsea. It’s all part of my ongoing monthly series of street style-inspired flash sales at Gilt.com.
I love documentaries…and behind-the-scenes glimpses of interesting things – I’m sure many of you guys would agree. And while we all enjoy looking at street style photography, if you’ve never been to the shows (and perhaps even if you have) it’s a bit of a mystery as to exactly how these photos come about. Do I know these girls or are they strangers? Are they actually attending the shows or coming to them specifically to have their photo taken? Do they stop for me or are they “doing a runner”? How do you decide who to shoot? Our little video here should provide answers to at least a couple of these questions! If you’re intrigued and want to know more, you’ll have to come to the shows. Paris Fashion Week is next for me – I’m flying out to shoot that next Tuesday. Up next – lots more of my favorite street style looks from NYFW! xx Mr. Newton
