We Threw a Sweaty Dance Party to Celebrate Our Spring Future Issue

+

On Friday night, we gathered 400 of our closest friends in the expansive TEMP Art Space in TriBeCa to celebrate the release of our spring Future Issue. Upstairs, guests crammed into The Bosco‘s stellar photobooth (see the very pretty gallery HERE), flipped through magazines featuring our cover stars James Franco and Kirsten Dunst, sipped on complimentary Bushmills and Heineken beverages, and complimented each others’ Bench. hoodies (undoubtedly the most popular outerwear choice of the evening). Meanwhile, in the dense, damp basement, a full-on dance party broke out thanks to electric DJ sets by Elle Dee, Loric, and the incomparable Devonté Hynes, not to mention a live performance by CABLE. Guests zoned out into the trippy reel of BULLETT TV shorts looping between the summery Bench. campaign video. We’re not ones to boast (often), but judging by our collective hangovers and a review of Instagram documentation, we’re gonna go ahead and say we outdid ourselves this time.
