For over a decade, Claridge’s – the iconic London establishment – has transformed its lobby into a festive spectacle, with renowned fashion houses each adding their flair to the hotel’s Christmas tree. This year, it’s Louis Vuitton’s turn to dress this symbol of yuletide joy, promising a tree that reflects both the hotel’s opulent spirit and the fashion house’s legacy of travel and craftsmanship.
Claridge’s keeps its end of the partnership dazzling, with a recent renovation and the introduction of a premier spa.
Set to be revealed on the 23rd of November, the collaborative effort is steeped in a rich shared history. In 1854, the founder of Louis Vuitton was appointed as a personal box-maker and packer for the Empress Eugénie, while she wintered at Claridge’s. Today, that tradition of travel and elegance remains a central theme, expected to be elegantly woven into the tree’s design.
The stakes are high as Louis Vuitton follows a lineup of illustrious predecessors, but the luxury brand is no stranger to such challenges, consistently at the forefront of the fashion industry. Claridge’s, too, keeps its end of the partnership dazzling, with a recent renovation and the introduction of a premier spa, confirming its status as a jewel in Mayfair’s crown.
