Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana clearly did an outstanding job decorating the Claridge’s Christmas tree last year – the proof is in the pictures! – so we aren’t actually that surprised to learn that they have been given the honour once again.
“We are delighted to invite Domenico and Stefano to spread their special magic in our lobby once again,” said Thomas Kochs, general manager of the hotel. “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.”
Although the Dolce and Gabbana tree last year was strongly influenced by Sicily, this year we can apparently expect something far more traditional…
“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,” the Dolce and Gabbana boys 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 tree will be unveiled on November 19th… we can’t wait!
