PORT Issue 19 launch: In Pictures

Exclusive photos of PORT’s issue 19 launch, in collaboration with Persol

This week saw us partner with Persol to throw our biggest (and busiest) launch party to date at Library private members club in London.

Among the 300-plus guests at the celebration were actors Douglas Booth, Malachi Kirby, Luke Pasqualino and Amy Jackson (all wearing frames from Persol’s new Calligrapher collection), as well as designers Matteo Fogale and Laetitia De Allegri, model Roxy Horner, and music duo RIVRS, who provided the soundtrack for the evening.

Also in attendance was PORT issue 19 cover star Juno Calypso [read our interview with her here], who lent us some of her new artwork to hang on the walls of the Library club.

Thanks to all those who made it such a superb event, and helped launch PORT issue 19 in style. Special thanks to Belvedere Vodka and Fever-Tree for the outstanding cocktails and to Menabrea for providing the beer.

See below for more photos from the launch.
