This Christmas, step through the doors of London’s first hotel and into a tropical festive fantasia, with decorations designed for Brown’s by legendary British designer, Sir Paul Smith.

This novel-Noël concept is inspired by the 125th anniversary of the publication of The Jungle Book, penned by acclaimed author Rudyard Kipling at Brown’s, with tropical fruit and wild animals playfully adorning the hotel. A quirky combination of the classic and the unexpected, much like the iconic British brands, Paul Smith and Brown’s.  The exotic decorations and Christmas tree will appear as if by Mayfair magic at the end of November.

For almost two centuries Brown’s has been at the heart of London’s festive celebrations. With sparkling fairy lights outside its doors on Albemarle Street, the hotel is located just moments from the tinkling bells and bright displays of Bond Street.  Guests can make the most of Mayfair this festive season and expect the unexpected by celebrating at Brown’s with two of Britain’s most iconic brands.

If Sir Paul’s festive take-over leaves guests wanting more, just a few doors down from Brown’s lies Paul Smith’s London flagship at No. 9 Albemarle Street. No matter what the time of year, the shop is filled with rare artwork, vintage furniture and curiosities as well as the clothing, shoes and accessories that Paul Smith is famous for.
