Christian Louboutin has been asked to design Claridge’s annual Christmas tree in his distinctive style.
The French designer, who considers the Mayfair hotel his “second home” in London, will be the 10th person to take on the challenge.
“It is an honour to be invited to design the Claridge’s Christmas Tree which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year,” Louboutin said.
“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.”
It will be displayed in Claridge’s hotel lobby from November 21 for the festive season.
Paddy McKillen, Claridge’s co-owner, said: “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.
“This year, we promise some extra special touches and of course a few surprises.”
