15 Things You May Have Missed About Chanel in Cuba

Colourful cars, controversy and a whole lot of Chanel.
|

A Chanel show never goes down without a spectacle. Even the house’s Fall/Winter 2016 show – which was supposedly “themeless” and considered rather stripped down compared to its predecessors – was a spectacle in how everyone got a front-row seat, a rare occurrence. For Chanel’s Cruise 2017, Karl Lagerfeld took the spectacle all the way to Havana, Cuba. The man’s always kept an eye out for emerging cities/countries – consider his previous choices of Seoul and Singapore, hola! – and picking Cuba, which had very recently opened its doors to American tourists, was a no-brainer.

So, spectacle? Check! What about the clothes? Oh, they were beautiful. The thing about Chanel and good ol’ Karl is that they rarely compromise on technique and pizzazz, even for a cruise collection. Sure, we’ve got the sandals, panama hats, sun dresses and birds of paradise, but these came down the runway alongside tux-inspired suits, military jackets, weather-worn leather, big see-through dresses and shorter, embellished ones – for partying! “Masculine-feminine, terribly chic with a dash of scoundrel,” states the official show notes. Yeah, that’s about right.

As with every Chanel event, it wasn’t just the clothes that got people talking and ‘gramming. Personal chauffeurs that came in vintage cars, homages to controversial Cuban political leaders and the next It t-shirt on everyone’s wish list – we’ve got the stuff to know in the slideshow above.
