Have you ever seen leopards, dragonflies and parrots looking at you from a Christmas Tree? Apparently that’s what John Galliano, Christian Dior’s creative director, had in mind for his festive tree to replace the traditional tinsel and twinkling lights with frosty wood with twisted branches. The venue is the grand Claridge’s Hotel in London where both Claridge’s and Dior will seek to blend ‘impeccable heritage, inherent glamour and contemporary thinking’. And by the looks of it, they’ve done a great job. Standing proud in the hallway, it’s a sort of surprise for the bystanders like you and me. We’d term it as an absolute novelty, Christmas decoration with a difference, to say the least.
