Chanel Parades Fashion Glitterati Through Cuba

Catwalk extravaganza descends on Havana.

Chanel’s 2017 inter-seasonal Cruise presentation was staged on the Communist-ruled Cuban streets. Karl Lagerfeld turned Havana’s crumbling Paseo Del Prado boulevard into an exclusive runway for his cultural richness-inspired collection. Fashion glitterati including the likes of EIC Anna Wintour, and supermodel Gisele Bundchen descended onto the island.
