One Thing Leads to AnOther
Jefferson Hack decided to take advantage of all the boldfaced names in L.A. between the two Coachella weekends by hosting a celebration of the latest issues of AnOther Magazine and AnOther Man with Mazdack Rassi at Milk Studios. While Michelle Williams graces AnOther Magazine's spring/summer issue, Another Man's latest went the way of music, featuring Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner. "There's a really strong creative community here, and it's more and more becoming a place for experimentation," Hack said of L.A., where the Arctic Monkeys made their latest album. "I think the space, the light, the lack of socializing that happens in other cities gives artists the time to hunker down and be in their own world—they've migrated here for those reasons."
And artists in all forms came out last night. Joshua Jackson, Frankie Rayder, Liberty Ross with brother Atticus Ross, and Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy all dined together just outside Rassi's studio space. And despite everyone's best efforts, conversation remained festival focused—even for Johan Lindeberg, whose weekend trip to Indio was brief. "I was there the first night, and then in the morning, when I woke up, I knew I could not do this, since I've been traveling so much," Lindeberg said. "So I took my car and drove four hours up into the desert to my friend's house close to Death Valley, stayed there one night, and then back down to Joshua Tree." As plates were cleared, a new stream of guests, including Hannah Bronfman, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and Orlando Bloom, filed in to the music of Irina Lazareanu and Warpaint, at perfect pace for Weekend Two.
