The designer has been inspired by the sea in the creation of his Under the Sea tree, featuring silver leaves, pink coral, sea horses, and starfish.

"The majestic beauty of Claridge's Art Deco interiors never fails to inspire me. I am thrilled to be invited to create a new tree for Christmas at Claridge's," says Galliano of the collaboration. "I wanted to create an underwater fantasy and have mixed pink corals, seahorses, anemones and jellyfish, all glinting like gem stones, swimming amidst the silver leaves. I hope we create something as sumptuous as its setting and this inspires a truly luxurious escape and a very festive season at Claridge's."

The special tree is due to be revealed in the hotel's lobby on November 25 and can be viewed until January 5.
