Elle.com, Soho, and Stylish Procrastination

Hi there – well if you live in the States then you’re just back from Thanksgiving break today likely – and probably have loads of stuff simmering on your year-end to-do list after taking a few days off. It can be pretty daunting facing down such a list on the day after a long weekend, no? Well I’m here to help you procrastinate and ease back into the week! (I mean, today you should really just get organized anyway. You can actually get stuff accomplished tomorrow, right?) So if you feel like procrastinating – uhh, I mean “doing fashion research” – then you should really check out this new street style story that I shot for Elle.com. It’s all about the stylish girls who work in some of the coolest boutiques in Soho – featuring girls from some of my fave shops like Acne, Isabel Marant, Topshop, and A.P.C. I’m not allowed to post the photos here at Mr. Newton just yet (hence the headless street style wonders you see above)…but you can see them all over on the Elle website by clicking here. xx Mr. Newton

Cruisin’ Together

Hi there – I hope that all of you (who live in the northern hemisphere) have been having a wonderful summer and that you’ve been getting outdoors lots! Friends that I’ve been chatting with just this week have been telling me about bands playing in barns in upstate New York, lake trips in Germany, and swimming in the sea near Stockholm. I dream of doing all of that! When I’m in the city though, I still take advantage of the fantastic weather and take one of my vintage bikes out for a spin as often as possible. I have two bikes – a blue one and a white one, both single-speed models with coaster brakes from the 1960’s. I live near the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn and biking is my primary mode of transportation into the city year-round…but in the summer it’s just plain fun! City biking has very recently seen a surge of popularity among the chic set in New York…and I actually think that style blogs have been a big contributing factor to this micro-trend. After all, who that regularly visits bike-friendly style blogs like Copenhagen Cycle Chic, The Sartorialist, or Dam Style hasn’t thought about copping this eco-friendly and Euro-centric “look” for themselves? All of which brings me to my point – I’ve just shot a new street fashion story for Elle.com about chic city bike girls! I’m not allowed to post the photos here at Mr. Newton, but you can see all 15 photos over on their site by clicking here… xx

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
