The art of parties and beyond

Another Man, Jefferson Hack
Oct. 21, 2005: The suiting-up and tie-tightening of men's mags continues with the launch of Another Man, the polished brother publication of Another and Dazed & Confused. To celebrate the premiere issue of the biannual—which features Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash on the cover, as well as celebrity essays, interviews and news on art, music, fashion, philosophy and literature—publisher Jefferson Hack, along with sponsor Motorola, held a suitably lavish dinner party at Home House in London. Each table was named after a male icon, including John Wayne, James Dean, Kurt Cobain and, not surprisingly, Johnny Cash, while the dress code for the evening was, not surprisingly, menswear (even for women). Chomping on foie gras and rack of lamb to the tickling of a grand piano were actress Samantha Morton, The Clash's Paul Simenon and Mick Jones, Hedi Slimane, Kim Jones, Anthony Rossomando and Gary Powell of Dirty Pretty Things (formerly The Libertines), and stylists Venetia Scott, Alister Mackie and Katy England, all of whom were treated to Courvoisier's oldest and rarest cognac, L'Esprit de Courvoisier, at $20,000 a bottle. After dinner, the guests moved upstairs for an earful of the vocally dexterous human beatboxes Kila Kela, accompanied by a string quartet, as well as games of roulette and black jack, though not for real pounds. In other Another news, the next issue of the women's version will be #10—we're told to expect appropriately grand celebrations. Watch this space.
