May 3, 2016, Havana, Cuba. While Cuba is opening its turquoise doors to the world, the beautiful island invited not only Obama, the first American President to come to Cuba since 1928, but also the world of ‘moda y lujo’ to enter the colourful and vibrant capital city Havana. In the Paseo del Prado, set between the palm trees and Cuban casas, the street has become a runway for the Chanel cruise collection 2017. In a beautiful mix of old and new, the past and the present, the Chanel couture collection meets the classic imperial style of Cuba. With the Panama hats, coloured tweed jackets and midi skirts, the Chanel cruise collection 2017 is clearly inspired by Cuban history. While the masculine trousers, tweed jackets and midi skirts in the cruise collection are quintessential to Chanel, the colourful tweed in lime, coral, blue and colonial white, tropical prints and ‘Viva Coco libre’-shirts have been inspired by the Cuban setting.
