It’s official!!! Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz is designing Claridge’s Christmas tree this holiday season! WWD released the first sketch of the tree this morning and it does look quite spectacular. Set your alarm bells as this tree is set to be revealed on the morning of November 22nd!
As a sidenote, you may remember that John Galliano for Dior has been responsible for the design of the tree for the past two years. There’s no word on whether it was always planned that a new designer would take the reigns for 2011 or if Galliano’s absence is due to the incident earlier this year.
