Christmas Trees by Five of Fashion’s Most Exciting Design Talents

Dilara Findikoglu, Edwin Mohney, Leo Carlton, Jabez Bartlett, and Paul Kindersley put their spin on the humble Christmas tree

This Christmas, we asked five of London’s most exciting design talents – fashion designers Dilara Findikoglu and Edwin Mohney, milliner Leo Carlton, set designer Jabez Bartlett, and artist Paul Kindersley – to make us a Christmas tree. We were quite taken aback by their responses, each a unique, highly original takes on the tired, tinsel-covered conifer. Findikoglu, who, as we know, often draws on the occult, crafted us one out of wicker, while Mohney created a walking Christmas tree, covered in a mass of plastic cups, zip ties and tinsel. Silver foil was Carlton’s material of choice, wood and dried flowers were Bartlett’s, while Kindersley used a medium he often employs in his work: his own body. Photographed by Amy Gwatkin, these creations appear alongside a selection of Christmas gift ideas curated around each tree by Another Man’s fashion editor Reuben Esser.
