The in’s, out’s, celebs and sounds from the Emporio Armani Summer Garden Party.


It’s common knowledge that Emporio Armani loves a good jam session. Since 2011, the Emporio Armani Summer Garden Live series has merged the famed and fabulous of fashion with the fabulous and famous in music and celebrity. Held at the cool confines of the Emporio Armani New Bond Street store Tuesday evening, guests were first offered the usual round of delectable canapes and bountiful jugs of booze and bespoke cocktails by Ciroc vodka and Peroni.

Guests were in for a hot surprise, as the slew of musical performances took place at the store’s secret garden pavilion. Each performance had guests such as Bip Ling, Oona Chaplin and featured April/May 2013 Wonderland actress Gemma Chan dancing the night away. Performers AlunaGeorge, Jamie N Commons and Rollacoaster girl Arlissa looked as fine as they played, and all were introduced by MTV babe Laura Whitmore.

While the fun is ended, the spirit of the Garden Party lives on via the selection of party playlists, all sponsored by Emporio Armani in association with Spotify. Take a listen to AlunaGeorge’s fab-fun mix below, and then head over to Armani’s Spotify page to continue listening to the best mixes of fashion’s most magical summer night.
