Commenting on the collaboration Diane von Furstenberg said 'Claridge's is my favourite hotel in the world and my home in London. I was so excited to create its legendary annual Christmas Tree. My tree will be 'The Tree of Love', celebrating all aspects of love and life'.
The fashion icon walks in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director of both Chanel and Fendi, whose interpretation of festive flora in 2017 was superlatively imaginative. The sixteen-foot-high tree was unveiled, in fact, upside down, with its silver gilded roots reaching upwards to the lobby's ceiling. This tree definitely lived up to expectation: it was crowned with a mirrored star that reflected rays of light all around the space, creating an extraordinary atmosphere.

2018 marks the ninth year that Claridge's has invited a creative mind to transform their Christmas tree. We've seen a brightly coloured, jewel-like Sicilian Christmas tree courtesy of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana; a silvery, egg-bearing tree from Kally Ellis of super-florists McQueens and an underwater coral like tree, decorated in sea horses, fish, anemones, from Dior's John Galliano.
Diane will unveil ‘The Tree of Love’ in the hotel lobby on the morning of Tuesday November 27 2018.
