Chanel Celebrates Havana with Cruise Collection

It was an unusual sight for Cubans as international celebrities and Cuban bigwigs gathered on a quiet street in Havana for the nation’s first international runway show.

Handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld for his Cruise collection presentation, Chanel transformed the Paseo del Prado, a long seaside boulevard into a runway, complete with models clad in Carribean-infused mannish jackets, frothy skirts and sequinned dresses.

The show is the latest in a stream of international cultural events, as Cuba continues its efforts in opening up diplomatic and commercial relations. “The world is finally opening up to Cuba. Everyone wants to come taste the forbidden fruit. Everyone wants to discover it, savor it, enjoy it, explore it,” said Mariela Castro, the daughter of President Raul Castro and a prominent gay-rights activist on the island.

Meanwhile, other high-profile attendees included Hollywood stars Vin Diesel, who was in town shooting the latest Fast and Furious movie, Tilda Swinton and Geraldine Chaplin. The show ended with the Kaiser’s brief appearance, as ordinary Cubans applauded from outside the tightly guarded venue.

“What a sight. But I would have liked to be closer to the models,” said 52-year-old Mireya Correoso, who told AFP she had never seen so much luxury and showbiz in one place.

Chanel Cruise Collection Seoul

Chanel shows Cruise collection in Seoul [VIDEO]

Karl Lagerfeld was in Seoul this week to unveil the Chanel’s Cruise 2015/16 collection — a kaleidoscopic vision of color and pattern inspired by the K-pop trend sweeping the West at the moment.

Describing the collection as a “modern version of the pop art scene,” Lagerfeld said he was inspired by Korean traditions but wanted to adapt them for the world of today.

“I love the proportions of the dresses, and even the fibres,” he explained at the show. “We had some made here because the fibres don’t exist.”

He also revealed that one of his fabric designers at Chanel is Korean and that her friends and K-pop singers regularly visit the fashion house.

He concluded: “The modernity of Korea was something I was used to as an idea, but I wanted to see the reality.”

The cruise runway featured cute summer dresses, skirts and tops in bold geometric striped prints, as well as trousers and dust jackets. Structures were kept loose, floaty and playful, with the wigs adding to the sense of fun.

Of course it wouldn’t be Chanel without tweeds, and the house sent plenty of those down the catwalk too. Pastel greens, candy pinks and rich purples gave life to jacket and skirt combos, while a turquoise and black houndstooth check made one look pop.

Korea’s influence was evident throughout the collection, from a cream and bubblegum pink confection worn by Barbara Palvin to a cobalt blue jacket teamed with black mini shorts modeled by Georgia Hilmer.

Lace fingerless gloves, sixties sunglasses and knee-high socks were all added into the mix.
