THE ED MARLER CHRISTMAS TREE

The most imaginative tree this season stands in Hoi Polloi in Ace Hotel London Shoreditch. We’re wondering what kind of presents you might find underneath an Ed Marler tree?

Adorning most trees this Christmas you’ll probably find some lopsided angels and homemade ornaments, Hoi Polloi’s specially commissioned tree is the opposite. Created by Ed Marler, ‘Our Lady of Shoreditch’ is a feast for the eyes, complete with a rather untraditional decor featuring bloodied crystal encrusted steaks, gold hamburgers, broken plates, marabou feathers and a good dose of glitter for some festive sparkle. Our Lady even holds a baby, covered pearls in a tribute to the East End Pearly Kings and Queens.

Ed Marler had his first London Fashion Week show as a part of Fashion East last season and when it comes to his own tree, he’s hoping for a pair of Manolo’s underneath it, just like those worn by the male models in his show.
