You know it’s summer when people start throwing summer parties and Emporio Armani did just that last night. Held at the back of their New Bond Street store in a secret garden – we wish we had one of those at the back of our office – guests were entertained by the Rizzle Kicks and Friendly Fires late into the night as they showcased some of the Britain’s finest new music.
In attendance were the ever gorgeous Douglas Booth and Vanessa Kirby, Laura Whitmore in a teeny mini (well, it is summer) and a very happy looking Jamie Campbell Bower. All of them seemed to enjoy the outside cool of the garden, the expanse of which was turfed bar the stage on which the performers entertained.
Champagne was free-flowing for most of the evening which seemed to help when guests were encouraged to dance and we ate more than a few of the wonderful canapés. Guests were served seared tuna, ricotta and tomato wrapped in courgette and wonderful raspberry tartlets at the end of the night. Ciroc vodka were also on hand with some amazing elderflower cocktails which we imagine may have left a few of the attendees feeling a bit sore-headed this morning.
