On Friday evening, hotelier Ian Schrager’s Public Hotel was teeming with cool kids, courtesy of Document Journal’s editor in chief, Nick Vogelson, who curated a luxe gathering in celebration of the title’s 14th issue. Grace Coddington, Ryan McGinley, and Helena Christensen swirled into the cocktail lounge. Soaked in candlelight and blush peonies, friends gathered around the neat stacks of issues that framed the procession to toast a culmination of creative efforts spanning the art, fashion, and editorial realms.

At over 600 pages, Document’s spring-summer 2019 edition taps into the future by reflecting on the past—the issue traces laws that have governed space for decades, documents global communities in their effort to combat climate change, and enlists Dior’s Kim Jones and iPhone architect Jonathan Ive to talk design inspiration.

Dinner followed cocktails, featuring a revolving door of decadent dishes prepared by reigning French-American chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The seating featured a series of interludes, including an effusive thank-you speech from Vogelson, a panache-packed performance by musician Shamir, and a vibrant after-party at the hotel’s club space, Public Arts.

“The magazine is about our contributors,” said Vogelson of the issue. “We’re very honored and humbled to work with people from David Sims to Mario Sorrenti to Bob Colacello. [Our contributors] help us to continue to do what we do and explore the world around us. This is really a dinner in honor of all of them and [a way] to thank them for all their hard work—for this issue, for the past issues, and for allowing us to grow.”
