Deck the Halls, Fashionably! Claridge's Unveils Their Dolce & Gabbana Christmas Tree
It's the most special time of year: the unveiling of Claridge's Christmas tree!
Celebrated fashion designers, (and longtime Claridge’s guests), Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, revealed their stylish tree at the luxury London hotel on November 20. The tree features classic elements of a traditional Christmas tree, reinterpreted with a glamorous Sicilian twist -- hand-crafted Sicilian puppets, known as ‘pupi,’ hand-painted Italian glass baubles, and multi-colored "luminarie" framework created in Southern Italy.
Dolce and Gabbana’s Christmas Tree marks the fourth year that Claridge’s has invited one of its favorite guests to create and decorate the beloved hotel’s tree, as well as the first time it has been celebrated with the traditions of an Italian Christmas by Dolce & Gabbana. Previous years' designers have included Lanvin and Christian Dior.
