Chanel Brings the Catwalk to Cuba

It was a first for fashion.

Karl Lagerfeld took Chanel’s Cruise 2017 collection to a place where no runway has ever been before – Cuba. And was it as fabulous as you’d expect? Do you even have to ask?

Cuba lifted its sanctions just one year ago, so of course Karl was the first to jump on the bandwagon, along with 600 of his fabulous guests. Using one of Havana’s main boulevards as the catwalk for his glittering gowns, tulle cocktail dresses and models in Panama hats, we also saw Cuban motifs make an appearance – pretty apt for Cruise – with amazing turquoise and pink vintage cars lining the background. In terms of celebs, we saw Tilda Swinton, Vanessa Paradis and Gisele make an appearance, while Vin Diesel popped in for a visit too.

Fashion history has been made!
