FLAVOR OF THE MONTH: Mr. Porter promised gin and tonics and gelato on its invitation for an event at Mayfair's ritzy In + Out Club. Sure enough, guests were greeted at the entrance by a cart serving scoops of salted caramel gelato and strawberry sorbet, while the site’s editor-in-chief, Jeremy Langmead, showcased an exclusive capsule collection by Agi + Sam, Christopher Raeburn, and J.W. Anderson. "We fired a few weather bombs, which they do in China and it does actually stop the rain coming," Langmead said, as the rain held off despite a suspiciously overcast sky. Three pieces had been commissioned from the fall-winter collection of each designer, including a panel print shirt from Agi + Sam, a bomber jacket from Christopher Raeburn and a navy sweater from J.W. Anderson emblazoned with a pair of scissors. All pieces are currently on sale, with prices ranging from $155 to $900.
