Every year a visionary designer is invited to design Christmas Tree of the 5-star London hotel; Claridge’s. This year, Christian Louboutin’s unique installation also marks the 10th year of this creative collaboration.
The unveiling of the 2019 tree heralds the beginning of Christmas in the British capital, as hotel’s guests, neighbours and visitors from across the globe arrive to experience the season’s feasting and festivities.
Christian Louboutin’s immersive installation invites guests on a journey, transforming the lobby into a frosted forest. At its heart is a traditional tree in gold and red, dressed with fairy lights and gingerbread stilettos – and topped with a gold-leaf crown.
Alongside the five meters (16.4 feet) tall tree, The Loubi Express is stationed in the lobby. Passengers are invited to step aboard this enchanting red carriage and take a seat in restful red velvet interiors, where just four tables create an intimate setting. Enjoy a glass – or share a bottle – of Laurent-Perrier, or try one of an exclusive collection of cocktails specially created with Christian Louboutin. Accompanying the drinks are canapés and a selection of Claridge’s Bar sharing dishes – all served to your lamplit table by our Cocktail Conductor.
“I wanted to bring a little bit of Paris to London, and for this year’s design to capture the excitement of journeys, whether to new destinations or homecomings,” said Christian Louboutin.
