At The Royal Poinciana Plaza

Holiday Reveal Event & Tree Lighting with Libertine Designer, Johnson Hartig

Dec 02 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Property-Wide

Since 2018, The Royal has partnered with incredible artists annually to create designs for our iconic holiday surfboard tree, and for the first time ever, we’ve decided to collaborate with an award-winning fashion label and designer.  The Royal is thrilled to collaborate with Johnson Hartig, Founder and Creative Director of the celebrated brand Libertine, as the designer of our 2021 surfboard Christmas tree.

Collaboration Information:

For the better part of the past two years, a global pandemic has changed just about every aspect of our lives, including the way we dress. As we thought about partners for this year’s holiday collaboration and prepared for what is poised to be a season unlike any Palm Beach has ever experienced, we knew it was time to put work-from-home wardrobes aside, and to truly celebrate FASHION!  Johnson Hartig’s work is the culmination of inspirations that ricochet between art, fashion, history, design, travel, and culture.

“Partnering with The Royal Poinciana Plaza on this project has been such a cool experience for me.  During a time when so much of the world seemed to come to a halt, Palm Beach continued to thrive and to welcome visitors and transplants from New York, California, and beyond.  My designs for the holiday tree capture the colorful and classic Palm Beach essence along with more edgy and urban prints representative of this new energy currently infusing the area.”

– Designer Johnson Hartig
