My Visit to Les Sapins de Noël des Createurs!
When we think of a Christmas tree, most of us would picture a green triangular-shaped fir with many small LED lights and colorful iridescent balls. But when it comes to designers and artist, the Christmas tree can come in various shapes, all kinds of bling-bling decorations and created with original ideas we might have never thought of. Yes, this could only happen at the yearly exhibition “Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs”, which is being held right now in Paris. For more information on the event, check our previous post here.
Being one of the first people to get into the event, I was able to admire all the creative contributions by well-known talents and fashion houses. This year, ideas are drawn from a variety of sources, and ultimately the spirit of the holiday season is translated into very interesting interpretations.
Chanel contributed with a small but beautiful structure made of metal and crystals. It reminds us of a snowy Christmas, yet the tree still keeps a traditional shape with a classical star on top.
Some choose to mix Noël with their own products, as Hermès and Jean Claude Jitrois did. Maybe we can think of the famous shirt-and-tie look and a well-tailored dress as good suggestions fora Christmas night out.
This year will celebrates the 20th edition of “Les Sapins de Noël des Créateurs” with the participation of 33 designers and artists , the event is currently being held at Théâtre de Champs-Élysées, 15 Avenue Montaigne, 75008 Paris for public display in 21st, 24th and 26th November 2015, from 12PM to 18PM. There will be a charity auction for these trees in the 23rd November, for Foundation Avec, an organization raising funds to fight against cancer through medical research and improving quality in patients lives. The sale will be live, advance registration catalogue could be found on www.drouotlive.com.
This is just a glimpse to the event, you can go see for yourself and get inspired by many wonderful ideas from renowned creators. And in case you are still hesitating, check out this crazy illuminated interpretation of a Christmas tree!
