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 harpersbazaar.com too – if you want to see everything! xo

  8. alright already, I’m booking my ticket to coachella 2012!

  9. I got so excited that this post was about the Australian music festival “Splendour in the Grass” that it took me a while to realise. Coachella looks a lot more glamourous than our festivals though, pool parties during a festival seems like such a foreign concept. Here in Australia we’re all expected to camp out for three days in the bush and wearing heels or nice shoes are unheard of when we go to festivals.

  10. You picked some seriously good swim-style Mr. Newton! Love the gal in the royal blue neoprene bikini and tur-band. Sooooo gooood! Thanks!!!

  11. OH BOY! Someone gave me your website-url. J’ADOOOOORRRRRE! What a great post x
