Every year Claridge's boasts a spectacular Christmas tree, but this year the festive honour of designing it was awarded to Alber Elbaz at Lanvin.

The towering tree was unveiled this week, and also features a scene of signature marionettes playing out 'the Lanvin family around the tree at home'.

"We wanted to make all our Christmas dreams come true; an infusion of tradition and modernity together. That is Lanvin," explained Elbaz.

"I hope the tree brings a big heart of joy to all who work and stay at Claridge's hotel: It's my way to say a very Merry Christmas."

We particularly love the adorable mini-Alber at the top of the tree, next to the glittery Lanvin star....

The tree will be on display in the Art Deco lobby until 2 January 2012. Head on over and see it for yourself at Claridge's Hotel, 49 Brook Street, London, W1K 4HR.
