Emporio Armani / Elliot Landy, Manchester Event

Armani Manchester staged a soiree last week, to celebrate the artistic collaboration of the store and photo-journalist, Elliot Landy.

Landy was the official photographer of the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and captured images that would later become famous, world wide. Many of the '27 club' were featured, including Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. 

Using a technique devised by the CIA, the shots were captured in infa-red. Whilst I enjoy my photography a little more political (Google: Barbara Kruger) I enjoyed being swept up in the druggy whirl-wind that is Landy's image.

What an excuse to get dressed up, 'eh? You can see me here, between my plus one, Christopher, and Lynda Moyo of I'm wearing my new McQ Alexander McQueen vest.
