Domenico Dolce & Steffano Gabbana are designing the Christmas tree of Claridge's in London again this year



Claridge’s, the iconic Mayfair hotel in London, will once again be asking Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, long-time friends and guests at Claridge's, to design their legendary annual Christmas tree.

This year’s Christmas tree at Claridge's will be surrounded by a magical enchanted forest, and decorated with many woodland animals such as foxes, deer and squirrels that gather near the fire.

They added: "We thought of an enchanted forest where the real meets the unreal, just as it does the night before Christmas. It is a very special tradition because it helps spread our love for Italian craftsmanship around the world. It is our second year creating the tree at Claridge's, a symbol of London that holds a special place in our hearts.”

And in a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
