Christopher Bailey’s Christmas tree was unveiled in the lobby of Claridge’s Hotel this morning.
The Burberry CEO and chief creative officer follows in the footsteps of Domenico Dolce and Stefano 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.
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, and 77,000 lights.
“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.”
