The Serpentine Summer Party is hosted by Chanel and set in the grassed grounds of the Serpentine art gallery in London’s Kensington Gardens.
With this years event unfortunately unable to go ahead, we look back at some of our favourite pictures from previous years.
This spectacular annual celeb-fest has attracted a line-up of art lovers, hotel magnates and aristocrats. Pop stars, fashion designers and business moguls flock to the event each year, so it is not one to be missed. In the last years, the party welcomed Royal guests including Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Lady Amelia Windsor. Also in attendance was Suki Waterhouse, Laura Bailey, Alexa Chung and co wore Karl Lagerfeld creations, joined by Yana Peel, Frida Escobedo and Kaya Scodelario. This major annual fundraiser celebrates the Serpentine Summer Season and the year-round support of the Galleries’ friends, partners and collaborators. Following the success of last year’s collaboration between the Serpentine Galleries and CHANEL, which saw the pioneering art institution and iconic fashion house combine creative forces, the partnership developed for 2018 creating a unique event celebrating free art and free thinking and honouring the best of art and architecture in the heart of the city.
Leading figures from the worlds of international art, architecture, design, fashion, music, film and business attended the party to celebrate and raise funds for the Serpentine’s globally acclaimed exhibitions, architecture, education and live programmes. The Serpentine’s legendary summer fundraiser raises essential funds for the Galleries’ programmes, keeping access to the Serpentine free and open to all, all year round. The Summer Party is organised by the Serpentine Galleries with support from CHANEL. Tickets are now available for the 2021 party: Tuesday 22nd June 2021, at the Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens, London. www.cornucopia-events.co.uk/serpentine-summer-party
