“When we think of London we always think of Claridge’s and of its typically English atmosphere that fascinates us and makes us fall in love with the city every time as if it were the first. Our Christmas tree isn’t only a celebration of Christmas as we celebrate it in Italy, but it’s at the same time atribute to the artisanal Italian tradition, the same that we love to export worldwide with everything we do,” revealed Dolce & Gabbana.

This magnificent structure will stand at 6.8 metres and will be transported over from Italy and erected over night by Claridge’s staff to greet guests as they descend for breakfast on the morning of 26 November.
