The Summer Party took place in the grounds of the Serpentine Gallery to celebrate the Serpentine Pavilion 2018, which has been designed by the award-winning Mexican architect Frida Escobedo.

Following the success of last year’s collaboration between CHANEL and the Serpentine Galleries, which saw the pioneering art institution and iconic fashion house combine creative forces, the partnership has developed for 2018 to create a unique event celebrating free art and free thinking, and honouring the best in art and architecture in the heart of the city.

Leading figures from the worlds of international art, architecture, design, fashion, music, film and business came together to celebrate and raise funds for the Serpentine’s globally acclaimed exhibitions, architecture, education and live programmes.

In line with the creative vision of CHANEL and the Serpentine Galleries, guests experienced a truly immersive party, with live performances from Nile Rodgers and DJ Mimi Xu on a stage created by the acclaimed set designer Es Devlin, who has previously worked with both CHANEL and the Serpentine. Coco’s’ Restaurant offered a seated dining experience on the night, while award-winning interior designer Joyce Wang has created a bespoke ice-cream cart from which gelato had been served.

Guests included:
Christo, Nile Rodgers, Bianca Jagger, Charli XCX, Ciara Wilson, Charlotte Dellal, Ellie Goulding, Edie Campbell, IAMDDB, Es Devlin, Edward Enninful, Andrea Dellal, HRH Princess Eugenie of York, HRH Princess Beatrice of York, Natalie Dormer, Lady Kitty Spencer, Max Irons, Sandy Powell and Laura Jackson.
