Dolce & Gabbana to design Claridge’s Christmas Tree 2014

Claridge’s exterior
Dolce & Gabbana and Claridge’s, London’s iconic Mayfair hotel, have announced that they will celebrate Christmas together for the second time this year.  Claridge’s legendary annual Christmas tree will be created by designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, long-time friends and guests of the hotel. The unveiling takes place on November 19th 2014.

This year’s tree will be surrounded by a magical enchanted forest, and decorated with many woodland animals such as: foxes, deer and squirrels that gather near the fire. Adorning the tree will be hundreds of hand painted blown glass spheres that illustrate the cities’ most famous landmarks, symbolizing the many Christmas traditions from all over the world. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are dedicating this tree to all the children of the world. By doing so they recall the many happy Christmases cherished from their own childhoods.

The Claridge’s Christmas Tree has long been a festive landmark, drawing visitors and Londoners alike to marvel at its magnificent design. This is the fifth year that Claridge’s have invited a favourite guest to create and decorate the Christmas tree in their own inimitable style.

Thomas Kochs, Claridge’s General Manager said “We are delighted to invite Domenico and Stefano to spread their special magic in our lobby once again. 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. Both Claridge’s and Dolce & Gabbana are synonymous with timeless glamour, innovative spirit and traditional family values that are so important during Christmas”

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said “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. 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. It is our second year creating the tree at Claridge's, a symbol of London that holds a special place in our hearts”
