A look at London's most fashionable Christmas trees
As London fills with merriment, new and exotic Christmas trees have appeared around the city, from Victoria Beckham’s Dover Street store to Claridge’s hotel...
This week, the Victoria and Albert Museum unveiled their Christmas tree – a collaboration with British designer Gareth Pugh, made from nine tiered gold pyramids built to replicate the shape of a tree.
Which is not so far away from Claridge's hotel, where they asked Dolce & Gabbana to decorate their tree for the second year in a row, with the decedent tree holding a number of animatronic animals as well as 9,000 fairy lights.
For the more unusual trees, one can head over to Victoria Beckham's Dover Street store where you can see the work of Iranian artist Shirazeh Houshiary, who installed an upside down tree featuring red roots.

Also in store, Christian Dior is host to a colourful bauble tree which has been made for the Le Sapin des createurs project, where all trees will be auctioned for charity on December 15 at drouotlive.com.
Then, over at Hoi Polloi in the hip Ace Hotel, designer Ed Marler has created a tree entitled 'Our Lady of Shoreditch', which includes ornaments shaped like gold hamburgers, oversized steaks, broken plates and marabou feathers.
