Claridge's 2021 Christmas tree designed by Dior

Claridge's hotel in London's Mayfair has announced its 2021 Christmas tree will be designed by Kim Jones, artistic director of the Dior men's collections.

The tree will be unveiled in the lobby of the hotel on the morning of Wednesday 24 November.

The tree will be a take on the snow globe, mixing holographic projections with a white toile, with Christmas baubles orbiting the tree. On top, Jones's dog Cookie will hug a star.

Jones said: "It is a great honour for me to design the Christmas tree for Claridge's and thus bring Dior, London and the Christmas spirit together in this iconic place."

Claridge's co-owner Paddy McKillen added: "Christmas has always been a truly special time of the year for us here at Claridge's, and we are delighted, for the first time in many years, to welcome a homegrown designer to create our illustrious tree."

This is the 11th year Claridge's has invited one of its guests to reinterpret the tree in their own distinctive style, with previous designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin and Diane von Furstenberg.

The five-red-AA-starred, 190-bedroom hotel is part of the Maybourne Hotel Group, as well as the Connaught and the Berkeley, all in London.
