A Can-Can inspired Christmas tree that could only be from Jean Paul Gaultier


Not many people use the words ‘Christmas’ and ‘Can-Can’ in the same breath, but designer Jean Paul Gaultier is hardly most people. A Can-Can themed Christmas tree created by the designer attracted the highest bid at 22nd edition of the annual Paris-based designer Christmas tree charity event organized by fashion journalist Marie-Christiane Marek

The exceptional tree features a frame shaped like a dancer in a classic pose with one foot kicked high in the air, wearing a skirt of Christmas tree branches. “I love Christmas and I love Paris and when thinking of the tree this year I wanted to do an homage to Paris. First I was thinking of the Eiffel Tower, but I finally decided to go with Can-Can. And the skirt is the real tree. So she can dance through Christmas,” said Gaultier.

The designer’s tree certainly stayed true to his style. Other big names lie Dior, Chanel and Prada also contributed items for the auction with a gold mini-tree by Dior attracting the second highest bid of the evening.
