Claridge’s Christmas tree has this year been designed by long-time guest Alber Elbaz, Creative Director of the famous fashion house of Lanvin.

Exclusively for Claridge’s, Mr. Elbaz has created a dream world of colour and fantasy with his signature marionettes and at the top of the tree is a silk figurine of himself with trademark glasses and bowtie, complete with the festive spirit of fairy wings and a wand.

His fantastical Christmas dream is brought to life in Claridge’s, with a tableau of caricatures portraying the Lanvin family around the tree at home, including the hotel’s doorman and maid dressed in Lanvin designed uniforms.

The Claridge’s Christmas tree has become something of an holiday sensation, drawing visitors and Londoners alike to marvel at its design. It is the third year that Claridge’s has invited one of its longstanding guests to create and decorate the lobby Christmas tree in their own inimitable style. This year’s creative vision is a festive party tree with the decorations being made by the Lanvin Atelier in Paris and of course with assistance from Santa’s little helpers.

Commenting on the collaboration, Mr. Elbaz said, “We wanted to make all our Christmas dreams come true; an infusion of tradition and modernity together. That is Lanvin. I hope the tree brings a big heart of joy to all who work and stay at Claridge's: It's my way to say a very Merry Christmas.”

Thomas Kochs, Claridge’s General Manager, added, “We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Elbaz this year to spread the Christmas magic in our iconic lobby. It is simply wonderful to see this talented designer decorate the tree in his whimsical style. The House of Lanvin and Claridge’s are synonymous with longstanding tradition and timeless glamour, and we are sure to bring the Christmas magic alive this Festive Season.”

The Claridge’s Christmas tree will be on display in the hotel lobby until 2 January 2012.
