Blasblog: Magnus Berger And Tenzin Wild’s Crowded House
Most would agree that this isn’t the best time to launch a new fashion rag. But if the backers behind The Last Magazine, a new oversize biannual, are anywhere near as excited as the glossy’s devoted followers, there’s no need to worry about its future. At Thursday’s Radar Entertainment-hosted bash celebrating Last‘s second issue, Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Zoe Kravitz, and a flurry of models packed themselves into a crowded private residence in Tribeca. Body grinding and moshing ensued.
“This is like a Bret Easton Ellis novel come to life,” observed Justin Portman. Last co-founder Tenzin Wild was similarly taken aback by the turnout. “I had no idea we were this popular,” he said. “Had we known, perhaps we would’ve gotten a venue with more than one bathroom.” Turns out the space was an apartment loaned to Magnus Berger, Wild’s partner in the venture, under the guise of a “little house party.” So how did the owner feel when this crowd poured in? “He wasn’t happy at first,” Berger explained. “But when I pointed out how many pretty ladies
were in his house, he seemed a little less mad. A little.”
