Ever wonder what a very Lanvin Christmas would look like? Well, so has Alber Elbaz. The always-jolly designer has assembled a very chic, very French tableau around London's Claridge's tree (his very favorite spot in the city). Just check out these ho-ho-haute snaps! His signature marionettes are swathed in silk (Lanvin-designed Claridge's uniforms!), and represent the Lanvin family (Mr. and Mr. Lanvin, and his mistress as well, bien sur!) all relaxing after a booze-soaked holiday. Our favorite part of the tongue-in-cheek set-up? The just-out-of-sight winged Alber fairy, perched atop the tree...we love.
