This autumn, at a time when the world feels at its most divided – its most partisan – we’re throwing our very own Party Issue. While party politics in America are transformed into a school-canteen food fight, here in the UK there has been a resurgence in political party membership.
From the history of Notting Hill carnival to the etymological roots of the word “party”; from an LSD library to the rise of Traditionalist philosophy, our contributors include the acclaimed novelist Ottessa Moshfegh, the writers Charlie Fox, Emily Segal and Justin E.H. Smith, and the photographers Osma Harvilahti and Jody Rogac, among many more. The artist Sarah Dobai collaborates with the novelist Tom McCarthy on a photo-poem that depicts Raf Simons’ new vision for Calvin Klein, and we bring you a definitive guide to history’s most debauched and decadent parties, should you like to compare notes.
