John Galliano for Dior designs Christmas Tree for Claridge's

For the second year running, Creative DIrector of Dior and British Designer, John Galliano, has created another masterpiece for Claridge's this Christmas.Galliano has turned the Art Deco space in the hotel's lobby into an oceanic paradise. The "Under the Sea" tree is a dazzling design of aquatic delights, with giant seahorses and colourful jellyfish swimming amongst sparkling corals and silver leaves, in severe contrast to the 'frozen' oriental tree he created for 2009.

Commenting on the collaboration, Dior Creative Director John Galliano says, “The majestic beauty of Claridge’s Art Deco interiors never fails to inspire me. I am thrilled to be invited to create a new tree for Christmas at Claridge’s. I wanted to create an underwater fantasy and have mixed pink corals, seahorses, anemones and jellyfish, all glinting like gem stones, swimming amidst the silver leaves. I hope we create something as sumptuous as its setting and this inspires a truly luxurious escape and a very festive season at Claridge’s.”
