Chanel Cruise 2016-17 collection is going to be presented in Havana, Cuba during May next year. This marks the first time the renowned fashion house selects a Latin American country to unveil its creations and thus. Havana will soon be treated to its first-class international fashion show ever and much anticipation is already building up ahead of the event. Read on to find out more!

Chanel will present its Cruise 16/17 collection in Havana

First Vanity Fair with Rihanna as its fittingly Caribbean model against a classic car front cover, now Chanel…what’s next for Cuba? A front cover in Vogue? Louis Vuitton ad campaign? The next backdrop for Dior design? All of those may very well be on the horizon as Cuba becomes the chic and fashionable, most up-and-coming destination in the Americas.

Just this week Chanel revealed that its forthcoming CHANEL Cruise 2016/17 collection was to be presented in Havana on 3rd May 2016. A first for Chanel who has yet to make a grand entrance in the Latin American fashion world and to stage a collection inspired on Latin American culture, Havana with its old age glamour and glow of a golden 50s era that time has eroded but certainly not erased, will be wowing the who’s who of the fashion industry with its faded grandeur.

As the press release by Chanel officially stated:

"The cultural richness and opening up of Cuba is a source of inspiration for Karl Lagerfeld and CHANEL."

As reported in Style Blog by Nelia Belkova, this is yet another sign of the long way Cuba has gone to have now become an object of desire appealing to big international business names, beyond that of hotel chains or tour operating companies. This is yet another stepping stone in building bridges and shows how far the thawing of relations between Cuba and the US has gone to attract worldwide attention from a varied array of entities: cultural, philanthropic, political and economic.

Ms Belkova herself says (and we can already picture it) that she anticipates:

"... a lot of vibrant colours, inspired by the colourful architecture of Havana, fun coco taxi purses, ruffles, and headscarves."
