Welcome to The Wick

— Katy Wickremesinghe
It’s the season for festive tree installations. Claridge’s, which has seen a fair few Louis Vuitton trunks come through its doors over the decades, is collaborating with the legendary maison on its décor. Expect monograms aplenty. Meanwhile, over at The Londoner, Anglo-Chinese designer Huishan Zhang is doing the honours, creating a shimmering, ethereal scheme between the firs.

At KTW we will be gathering inspiration and picking up fir cones, ribbons, cinnamon sticks, and berry laden branches for festive displays.

All my best wishes,
