Christian Louboutin will design Claridge’s Christmas tree this year.
The French designer is known for his signature shiny, red-soled stilettos, which are coveted by fashionistas around the globe, including celebrities such as Cardi B, Jennifer Lopez, and Blake Lively.
However, Louboutin is now turning his attention to festive decorations, as he has been tapped to design the Christmas tree that will stand in the lobby of the luxury London hotel.
“I have been a long-time guest of Claridge’s and consider it my second home when in London,” said Louboutin. “It is an honour to be invited to design the Claridge’s Christmas Tree which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Claridge’s is one of the most magical destinations with the tree being one of the city’s highlights at Christmas. I am glad to bring a little piece of Paris to such an iconic London landmark.”
Louboutin will unveil his creation on 21 November. And Claridge’s co-owner Paddy McKillen can’t wait to see what the fashion icon has come up with.
“Christmas has always been a truly special time of year for us here at Claridge’s and we are delighted to have Christian bring his festive magic to the hotel. We promise some extra special touches and of course a few surprises,” he shared.
This year marks the tenth time executives at Claridge’s have asked a guest to design a tree in their own distinctive style. Previous tree designers include Diane von Furstenberg, Karl Lagerfeld, Christopher Bailey, Dolce & Gabbana’s Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, Alber Elbaz, and John Galliano.
