Claridge’s, London’s legendary Mayfair hotel, has announced that this year their annual Christmas tree will be designed by their long time guests and friends designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
The tree which will depict iconic elements from a traditional Christmas tree reinterpreted with Sicilian elements, draws on the Italian heritage of the designers: hand crafted Sicilian puppets known as ‘pupi’, hand painted Italian festive glass baubles and a bespoke multi-coloured ‘luminarie’ framework created in Southern Italy.
