The House of Peroni 2019 | Partner Content
Just in case this slipped your attention…
…The House of Peroni has taken over a beautiful space in Covent Garden, and it’s open to visitors until this Saturday 9th March only.
No preparation is required: it’s totally free to visit; tickets are not required to enter; and on arrival you’ll be given a bottle of Peroni Nastro Azzurro on the house to kick your visit off in style (however if you’d like to attend a masterclass you’ll need to book into that in advance here).
Head along and you’ll uncover a bar (naturally) alongside immersive installations inspired by eight emerging fashion designers whom Peroni undertook a nationwide scout to find. They all have huge amounts of talent; a keen desire to share their work with the public; and (thanks to Peroni Nastro Azzurro) seven months of studio space & mentoring from industry leaders under their respective belts.
THE COCKTAIL BAR
Surprise surprise – the world’s only premium beer brand willing to regularly experiment with cocktails at its own events has, as ever, launched a killer cocktail lounge with an iconic platform bar inside this year’s House. And the drinks this year are pretty special, having been concocted by the winner of a nationwide talent search – Manchester-based mixologist Sam Taylor (who created the menu with guidance from Peroni Nastro Azzurro’s master of mixology, Simone Caporale). The bartending dream team put together eight cocktails – one for each of the featured designers, with each one reflecting a designer’s individual style.
And if the cocktails make you hungry? Well you’ll find Pasta e Basta serving up the finest of Italian fare, each day.
THE DESIGNERS & THEIR SPACES
The real magic and focus of The House of Peroni this year centres, of course, on the designers themselves.
So on arrival at The House you’ll find eight different, unique spaces (the perfect excuse for a secret drink) curated by each of them. Rose Danford-Phillips, for example, has created the Nature and Maximalism room to house her creations, featuring botanical scents and a wall of flowers made from unnatural upcycled materials, illustrating nature’s ability to overcome man’s destructive powers; Kyle Lo Monaco’s love of Sicily is embodied in a room that features lighting representative of the Sicilian sky, animated with shafts of light that creates an ever-shifting pool of movement; while Hannah Wallace has lined an entire tunnel with pulsating inflatable space blankets…
…which look exactly as you’d imagine.
