Get into the festive spirit

Get into the festive spirit this weekend at the Mandarin Oriental Jumeira. The city’s most desirable beachfront resort has teamed up with Salvatore Ferragamo to create a tree that showcases the heritage, craftsmanship and quality of the fashion house. It is the third consecutive year that Mandarin Oriental Jumeira invites a luxury brand to create and decorate the Christmas tree in their own inimitable style. This year’s vision has thoughtfully incorporated both Ferragamo’s iconic Gancini and Mandarin Oriental’s well-recognised symbol – the fan – to adorn the tree as lighting ornaments as well as Ferragamo’s signature Rainbow shoe dotted amongst whimsical stars that decorate the tree.
