John Galliano Returns to Claridge’s in London with a Specially-Designed Christmas Tree

November 22, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

John Galliano Christmas Tree at Claridge'sAfter the success of last year's fashionable Christmas tree, John Galliano has returned to Claridge's in London to deck the Art Deco lobby for the yuletide season. The 2009 Christmas tree by John Galliano for Dior was designed to be glittering white, as if frozen in time; the new couture tree for 2010 evokes the underwater world: “I 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 inspire a truly luxurious escape and a very festive season at Claridge’s," the designer told Harper's Bazaar. "Under the Sea" will be unveiled this week at Claridge's.
