THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
CLARIDGE’S has revealed that Burberry‘s chief executive officer and designer, Christopher Bailey, will be responsible for the design of its famous Christmas tree this year. Christopher Bailey follows in the footsteps of Dolce & Gabbana, who decorated the tree for two years, previous to which John Galliano and Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz were selected for the honour.
“Christmas is one of my favourite times of year so I was delighted to be asked to design the Claridge’s Christmas Tree – the iconic hotel celebrating a joyful time,” said Bailey this morning, as it was revealed that the tree will explore the relationship between light and dark and comprise more than 100 umbrellas, each of which will be finished in gold and silver metallic fabric.
“We wanted the tree to reflect the playfulness of the season with a little bit of the English weather thrown in. We also love the idea that the tree comes to life as guests pass by, bringing a wonderful touch of festive magic to their stay.”
Burberry has a long-standing relationship with the famous Mayfair residence. The hotel’s suites famously come complete with Burberry trench coats for guests to wrap up in and head out to see the lights of London. This festive season the fashion house has further upped the ante by providing Burberry-clad bell boys to help guests with their Christmas shopping lists.
