Claridge's To Get A Lanvin Christmas Tree

Claridge's is well and truly getting set to deck the halls this festive season, as they've tapped Lanvin to design their Christmas tree.

And while the creation won't be put up until later this month, we got our hands on this fashion-tastic sketch - which gives you just a little hint and what may lay in store...

"Alber Elbaz is creating a colourful and whimsical design, complete with his trademark marionettes dressed in Lanvin-designed Claridge's hotel uniforms," says a Claridge's spokesperson.

We can't wait! The tree will be displayed pride of place in the art deco hotel lobby, and will be unveiled by Alber Elbaz himself on 22nd November.

"The concept of the Christmas tree decoration is to create an installation that carries the spirit of Lanvin, an infusion of tradition and modernity at the same time, says Elbaz.

"The tree is to emanate and bring heartwarming joy to all who work and stay as guests at Claridge's hotel: It's my way to wish them a very Merry Christmas."

Well a very Merry Christmas to you too, Alber.
