Bergdorf Goodman’s Unleashed – a tale of true doggy heaven, and perhaps the cutest take on Christmas ever:
Kate Spade’s Give Colorfully – a fun spot based on gift wrapping all shapes and size:
Tommy Hilfiger’s House Par-tay – festive fun at home with The Hilfigers, which despite being on repeat play in the back of every New York taxi cab for the past month, is still enjoyable to watch:
Harvey Nichols’ Turn a Walk of Shame into a Stride of Pride – an amusing twist on Britain’s booze culture:
Tiffany & Co’s Some Holidays Are Unforgettable – a celebration of true love featuring Nat King Cole’s The Very Thought of You:
And finally, I couldn’t help but add in Apple’s festive spot for the iPhone 4S, featuring Santa and his new pal Siri:

Merry Christmas all!
Franca Sozzani, editor of Vogue Italia is set to host a day dedicated to showcasing life behind-the-scenes at her world famous magazine at London department store Harvey Nichols next week.
The “Vogue Experience” follows in the footsteps of similar events held in Milan and Rome. With Lisa Armstrong of The Times and UK Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman as co-hosts, it will offer visitors the chance to learn about working in the fashion industry.
Designers including Christopher Kane, Manolo Blahnik, Philip Treacy and Giles Deacon will also play a part, as will Sarah Mower, Katie Grand and Ronnie Newhouse.
“Vogue Italia’s aim is to actively support the creativity of fresh talent, thus helping to build up a new generation of designers, photographers and stylists able to play a dynamic role in the world of fashion. London is a lively, inspirational city, and I am very happy to share this experience with those who live here and those whose ideas and creativity have made a huge contribution to the fashion system in its broadest sense,” says Sozzani.
It will take place on Wednesday June 8, from 11am – 5pm in a designated area of the store’s fashion and lifestyle fourth floor. To register to attend, visit www.vogue.it.
For those not able to get down to Knightsbridge, however, the whole event will also be live streamed from Sozzani’s blog throughout the day.
