It’s not just the bulbs lighting up Harrods that are set to dazzle this Christmas. The shopping icon’s Circus collection is every bit as spectacular, brimming with more shimmering, sugary-sweet decorations than you could stuff in a striped marquee. Expect carousel ornaments decked with Swarovski crystals and sequin-strewn baubles, all washed down with glittery popcorn and candyfloss decs. Taking to the stage are ringmaster, hare and elephant dolls by Alice Mary Lynch, each hand-stitched from vintage textiles and treasures. Got the buzz? We round up the best of the big-top adornments on page 29.
