Our Noses to the 64 Carat Grindstone
Flaunt celebrates the release of The Grind Issue with SAND Copenhagen and Benedict Cumberbatch at Soho’s Blacks Club.
Thomas Edison once said, “There is no substitute for hard work,” but what did he ever do? We think hopping business class across the pond (in-flight movie: Marky Mark's Transformers; in-flight meal: Dewar’s on the rocks), darting over to London’s Dean Street, and celebrating the release of The Grind Issue with pals SAND Copenhagen and Benedict Cumberbatch at Soho’s Blacks Club is a fine substitute for just about anything, especially hard work. We shook our jetlag hobnobbing with the likes of Paloma Faith, Jordan Stephens, Billy Howle, Nikki Amuka Bird, Polly Stenham, James Long, Billie JD Porter, Daisy Lewis, Ella Catliff, Robert Montgomery and Mandi Lennard, rehydrated our digestive systems with organic CPRESS Juice (349% Vitamin A? We didn’t even know that was possible), and sipped some Hoxton Gin because, hey, it’s only the world’s most distinctive gin. The vibe was, appropriately, Georgian and grind-y, the club itself art directed in collaboration with the Cob Gallery to fit The Grind Issue’s expeditious mood. Now, back to work.
