In its thirteenth year of partnerships with friends, this time Claridge’s has combined efforts to show a Louis Vuitton tree featured inside two giant size cases.
Created in 1875 the ever-famous Louis Vuitton trunk which depicts “the art of travel” has long been accompanied by the most precious and essential effects.
This large sculptural creation stands with two wardrobe trunks at 5.2 metres
high each, adorned with Claridge’s travel stickers and an oversized travel tag.
Inside the cases there are 15 vertical chrome trunks that stand at different sizes and make the silhouette of a Christmas tree in an Art Deco theme. Scattered amongst the tree in a snowy landscape are 21 Louis Vuitton Mascots, including Father Christmas himself. This all can be found in Claridge’s black and white marble lobby.
Both founded in 1854, there has been a long relationship with the brand, having opened its first London store around the corner from Claridge’s.
With a relationship that is long standing, It is not the first time that Louis Vuitton himself came across Claridge’s. In the 1850s Vuitton became the personal layetier of Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III and her winter residence was Claridge’s.
Claridge’s General Manager Paul Jackson said of the collaboration “Christmas is the most magical time for us here at the hotel and we look forward to welcoming guests and seeing visitors immerse themselves in Louis Vuitton’s world.”
