The Serpentine Gallery and Diesel, in association with Silencio, presented a line-up of live acts for their Future Contemporaries Party which was held last week. The annual fundraiser took place on 17 September 2012 in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion which was designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei.
The Party brought together the new generation of artists, philanthropists, collectors and opinion formers to raise funds for the Serpentine Gallery’s acclaimed art, architecture, design, education and public programmes.
The Kills headlined the event in front of the white columns of the Serpentine Gallery, and against the backdrop of the Herzog & De Meuron and Ai Weiwei’s visionary Pavilion. Earlier, in the pavilion’s canopy, Chicago duo Wild Belle performed a set of breezy pop hooks and island rhythms. There were also DJ sets from France-based Brodinski and London-based Trevor Jackson, who has worked with Soulwax and The Doves. They were joined by resident DJ at Silencio Erik Rug.
Food was created by Isaac McHale of The Young Turks and Daniel Willis of The Clove Club, alongside a bespoke cocktail menu created especially for the event by Rob McHardy Bar Manager from Silencio Paris and wine from Bibendum.
Some of the guests included: Nicholas Kirkwood; Amber Le Bon; Kate Moss; Kelly Osbourne; Liberty Ross; Renzo Rosso; Louie Spence; Harry Styles; Princess Eugenie of York; Sarah, Duchess of York and lots lots more! You can see some of the photos in the gallery below! It looks like it was an amazing event!

On September 6th, which we all know is Vogue’s Fashions Night Out, J Brand partnered with retailer Ron Herman to host their event with style blogger Karla Deras of “Karla’s Closet” and J Brand Men’s Designer Matthew Saam.
Ron Herman shoppers also got a first look at the exclusive J Brand Brix Power Stretch Cargo in Vintage Nightfall (in the gallery below), specially designed for Fashion’s Night Out. They also got to mingle with Karla, Matt and Fashion’s Night Out shoppers including Donovan Leitch. You can see a few of the photos in the gallery below.
The new Brix pant retails for $268 at Ron Herman on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. I think it’s a cute style, it’s so much like the Houlihan and Agnes combined! What do you think of it? Do you like the zippers? I’m unsure if I like that many, it looks a little off balance. I usually prefer three zippers at the hips, but I guess it makes it unique!

I have the official images from the Destination Denim event at Selfridges with Paige Denim and British Vogue editor Sarah Harris, as well as the official video for Selfridges. You can see in these images what the event was like and how easy going it was.
I was asked to hold up my favourite pair of Paige jeans that Selfridges stock which is of course the Leaf print, which I have loved since the press day earlier in the year. Since I was talking to Paige quite a bit, I have some how popped up in a few more of the photos in the gallery below. You can watch the video above from the day as well! Enjoy! You can also see the original post with my own photos here.

On Saturday I attended the Paige Denim event at Selfridges as part of their Destination Denim month. Paige Adams-Geller had created the scarf print skinny jeans exclusively for Selfridges and was there for the launch along with British Vogue editor, Sarah Harris. Both ladies were offering advice and help to customers who needed it while choosing a pair of Paige jeans. There were adorable little cupcakes with jeans on top of the frosting as well as mini bottles of Coke Cola being served.
Sarah wore the yellow version of the scarf print skinny jeans (which looked really good on her) while Paige wore a black and white floral print with hip zippers, which I am assuming are from her new line to come. It was great catching up with Paige and actually meeting Sarah in person instead of online. They are both lovely ladies. The event seemed like it was a great success and I’m eagerly awaiting the October press days so I can see what’s to come from Paige Denim. You can see the photos in the gallery below!
