Chanel in Havana, Cuba

Karl Lagerfeld is known for his extravagant runway shows which take us all around the world – from Salzburg to Seoul and Dallas to Dubai – the designers latest showing for Chanel’s Cruise 2017 Collection is no different.

Announcing his next choice of location last year, Mr Lagerfeld presented his latest collection in Havana, Cuba yesterday. Speaking at last years Spring 2016 show, Lagerfeld spoke about the destination, telling in an exclusive video, “I would love to do a show in Cuba.”

With snippets of the events spread across insiders Instagram pages from the likes of Suzy Menkes and Carine Roitfeld, the event had the exquisite backdrop of Havana’s historical and magical city.

Here’s a peek into what went down.
