From Chanel Airlines to Coco Cuba, Karl Lagerfeld has proven to be the master of destination resort locations. This week, the much talked about Chanel Cruise Cuba collection set sail to Cuba and gave Havana the most dynamic fashion party it's seen in more than fifty years.
Karl Lagerfeld captured the spirit, energy and vibe of the Cuban people with a Chanel resort collection that showcased the perfect balance between wearability and luxury. Alongside Chanel's signature tweed in bright color, festive prints, some appropriately featuring a classic-car motif, marched down the grand Paseo del Prado in Old Havana. Tropical looks and classic black and white frocks and suits made their way through the collection reminiscent of a time when Cuba was glamorous.
Hats - fedoras and berets were well featured in the show. Cubans love hats. Even my eighty-two year old dad has a collection! The only issue I have is with VogueRunway.com who referenced the correlation between the beret and murderer Che Guevara. VR - don't glamorize him please.
Karl Lagerfeld took the finale walk wearing a purple sequin Saint Laurent jacket.
