For the past six years, Claridge's Hotel in London has enlisted the help of a special guest designer each festive season to design the hotel Christmas tree. This year, Burberry's Creative Director Christopher Bailey has designed the famous tree. The tree is made from 100 umbrella's covered in gold and silver fabric, as well as thousands of little lights with motion sensors. It is a playful nod to British weather and the iconic Burberry trench coat. You may remember for the finale of the Burberry AW12 runway show, all the models carried umbrella's, so that is instantly what this tree reminded me of. Guests staying in a suite at Claridge's, are also gifted a Burberry trench coat!
So keeping this unique tree in mind, I have searched online for some of the most distinctive and fun Christmas tree decorations. I am not one for matching decorations, I much prefer a Christmas tree to be an eclectic mix of decorations which have been collected over the years and vary in style…which is what you will find in this edit.
