Selfridges Presents: Future Fantasy

Selfridges Presents:
Future Fantasy

A film directed by Nabil Elderkin

As part of our Future Fantasy Christmas – where we’re celebrating a thoroughly modern take on the festive season – we’ve joined forces with some of the most exciting names in fashion, film and design today to explore what our festivities might look like 1,000 years from now… Watch the film here, and discover the story below.


So, what does it take to throw the ultimate party of the future? Hint: leave the classic Christmas tunes, Secret Santa and mince pies in this millennia and prepare to transform your traditions. Now, let’s delve into the secrets of putting on the event of the year (3019).


It all starts with...

The hosts

You can’t have a party without a host (or two). Let actress Noomi Rapace and musician Miguel take your coat, pour you a drink and show you how to let your hair down.


Noomi Rapace & Miguel

Noomi wears Valentino



Future Fantasy is a mix of my family, my friends, from different places in the world because that’s what Christmas is for me. It’s brilliant minds coming together.

- Noomi Rapace

Miguel wears Gucci



A great party always starts with great people. Then you add a little bit of tequila, good music, a great setting and then you’re off to the races.

The venue

Artist and fashion favourite, Daniel Arsham, has reimagined the typical family home (and the everyday goods it’s filled with) to create an out-of-this-world party venue, right down to the Seletti x Arsham Studio baubles hanging on the tree. You can discover the future-facing concept for yourself at Selfridges London, where Arsham has taken over our Corner Shop with ‘The House’, featuring a series of rooms decorated with the artist’s ‘future relics’, from a 2020 Porsche 992 to a Smeg fridge for keeping the turkey chilled. When can we move in?


So much of my work deals with the collapse of time, so I’m taking objects from the past or the present and pushing them into the future through a material transformation.

- Daniel Arsham
