London is renowned for many things, but one thing that it is most known for is its awe-invoking street displays that are offered up to city-goers around the holidays. So, in the name of maintaining this reputation, one of the Capital’s most luxurious hotels, The Standard invited two of the biggest names in emerging British fashion to design a set of “Not So Standard” Christmas decorations.
Calling on designers Chet Lo and Harris Reed, the Argyle Street-based establishment looked to offer their visitors a slice of festive cheer as an individualistic twist was put on the classic holiday tradition of decorating. With Reed’s affinity for brass-toned structures rippling throughout their designs, and Lo’s now-infamous spike textured materials being manipulated to wrap around an abstract tree-like structure and other hanging ornaments, the wonders of the UK’s emerging fashion scene were highlighted in a truly festive manner as the hotel’s hotel lobby and Double Standard bar underwent a magical makeover.
And, what better way to celebrate the work of the pair than with a drink? Offering up two liquor-infused cocktails that were curated to reflect the essence of each design, it becomes clear the hotel’s guests are sure to be catapulted into the Christmas spirit during their visits. Brb, we are booking our stay at The Standard right now!
