For the second year running, top designer John Galliano has created a stunning Christmas tree for iconic London hotel Claridge's.
Never one for the conventional, in true Galliano style, the tree was far from traditional as the designer used the ocean as his muse for his Under The Sea themed tree. And with sparkling sea horses and ethereal jellyfish floating around the gleaming tree, Galliano created an oceanic paradise amid the Art Deco lobby of the hotel.
Speaking of his collaboration with the hotel, Dior Creative Director John Galliano said: 'The majestic beauty of Claridge’s Art Deco interiors never fails to inspire me. I am thrilled to be invited to create a new tree for Christmas at Claridge’s. I wanted to create an underwater fantasy and have mixed pink corals, seahorses, anemones and jellyfish, all glinting like gem stones, swimming amidst the silver leaves. I hope we create something as sumptuous as its setting and this inspires a truly luxurious escape and a very festive season at Claridge’s.'
And there was a suitably glamorous unveiling ceremony last night as Kelly Brook and other celebs drank champagne and toasted the designer's festive triumph!
