Cuba, the ideal destination for the Chanel 2017 cruise show by Karl Lagerfeld, displayed electrifying and exotic silhouettes. Guests were treated to a weekend full of surprises, one of which included being chauffeured around in carnival coloured convertibles (which were then seen to be printed on some pieces). This open aired show took place at Havana’s Paseo de Prado, setting the perfect tone for the collection.
Chanel displayed the perfect combination of today’s youthful cool with traditional Parisian elegance. Take a look at a few of our favourite pieces that were on display last night:
These bright overlay images from the Chanel website, enhance the vibrance of this collection which is obviously turning head, meshing a colourful street style with classy beads and brooches. The carnival show concluded with a dancing parade, the perfect ending to this magical extravaganza by Chanel.
What were your thoughts on the show and the collection? Perhaps a few items here that you could actually wear? Exciting times ahead for the hybridity of street wear and luxury brands.
