After Chanel’s Cruise 2016 show in Seoul ,Karl Lagerfeld happened to mention to company president Bruno Pavlovski that he fancied Havana for the next presentation. And Chanel Show took place on Havana’s most impressive street Paseo del Prado. With the setting harking back to Cuba’s golden era, the muted colours, hats and understated romance of the Chanel collection were a good fit for the Havana backdrop. By showcasing its Cruise collection in Cuba, Chanel said it was harking back to the roots of the line originally designed for wealthy Americans holidaying on yachts and cruises in the Caribbean to escape the winter grey. For The Chanel Cruise 2017 Karl Lagerfeld look to Cuba for inspiration, he put a french spin on cuban motifs and a caribbean spin on classic Chanel codes. The best looks matched sheer blouses with full skirts and flat sandals or pearl-clustered slides. Sometimes the sleeves were rolled, other times they were puffed – Modezar Karl has shown us a perfect collection – the clothes that idealised the essence of cruisewear, something light and pretty to wear in Holiday.
