Claridge's Christmas tree to be designed by Dolce & Gabbana
This upcoming holiday season, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana will be transporting guests at the London hotel, Claridge's, to a "magical enchanted woodland scene" – different to the duo's Sicilian theme of last year's tree. The Christmas tree, which will be unveiled in the hotel foyer on November 19, will feature ornaments depicting landmarks from different cities around the world – a representation of the children around the globe, to whom the tree is dedicated to.
"Christmas is the happiest time of the year for children and we want to celebrate it with a tree that brings together all the different cultures from around the world," Dolce and Gabbana said. "We thought of an enchanted forest where the real meets the unreal, just as it does the night before Christmas. It is a very special tradition because it helps spread our love for Italian craftsmanship around the world."
The luxury hotel also shared their excitement on the festive collaboration, "We are delighted to invite Domenico and Stefano to spread their special magic in our lobby once again," said Thomas Kochs, general manager of Claridge's. "Our guests and staff loved their tree so much last year that we just know they will create something equally memorable and enchanting this time."
