WATCH: Terrifying/Amazing Alber Elbaz Marionette Wishes You A Merry Christmas

As a coda to the Lanvin-Claridges Christmas tree power alliance, Lanvin has followed up with this festive - if entirely unnerving - video. It features Alber Elbaz in marionette form swanning about Claridges. We love it - but want you to watch it and let us know what you think!

Need more Lanvin in you life? See the legendary Autumn/Winter 2011/12 Pitball video featuring supers Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann.
