The event to end all events. During Fashion Week, The Serpentine Gallery hosted its annual future contemporaries party with a headline performance from The Kills, the result of a creative collaboration with David Lynch’s Paris club, Silencio. The event took place in the Gallery’s grounds in Kensington Gardens, and used the Summer Pavillion – a striking collaboration between Ai Wei Wei and Herzog de Meuron – as its aesthetic focal point.

The programme of entertainment, sponsored by Diesel – featuring Wild Belle, and DJ Brodinski – was curated by the Silencio team. as were the extraordinary cocktail and food offering. As a part of their mandate to deliver the entire event, a deceptively simple lighting installation and set build were designed by the Bacchus Studio team in conjunction with Silencio.

The worlds of fashion, art, music and film descended on the event, with appearances by Mario Testino, Kate Moss, Kelly Osbourne, Harry Styles, Alek Wek, Noel Fielding, Jamie Hince, Renzo Rosso and Liberty Ross.
