Speaking to British VoguePietro said the display is aimed at ‘evoking emotions and dreams’.

“Harrods is perhaps the most iconic and legendary retail location, not only in the UK, but globally,” he added. ‘And our presence there means an incomparable level of visibility with an international impact.’

It comes as Great Britain will face Spain and hosts Australia at the new mixed team United Cup next month but will again be without star athlete Emma.

The event sees the ATP and WTA Tours come together, with each tie comprising two men’s singles matches, two women’s singles and one mixed doubles.

Emma, ​​who sat out the Billie Jean King Cup Finals through injury, has not entered and is set to play a regular tour event instead.
