Long-time Claridges guest Alber Elbaz created a tableau of marionettes having a typically decadent Christmas, with the hotel’s Lanvin-clad maid and doorman on hand.
The tree decorations were created specially by the Lanvin Atelier in Paris and the lovable Alber Elbaz even appears as the angel, holding court at the top of the tree.
Alber 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 hotel: It’s my way to say a very Merry Christmas.”
Claridges is without a doubt fashion’s spiritual home in London, with suites designed by Diane Von Furstenberg, illustrator David Downton as ‘fashion artist in residence’ and playing host to the Mulberry catwalk show for London Fashion Week each season.
Lanvin always knows how to have the most fun at Christmas. See the glam Christmas party in the windows of Lanvin on the rue Saint-Honoré in Paris last year…
The Lanvin Christmas tree with be in the lobby of Claridges until 2 January.
