Karl Lager­feld takes guests to Cuba for a Coco-cum-cas­tro Chanel Cruise show

Ar­riv­ing at Ha­vana’s open-air Paseo del Prado in a fleet of mul­ti­coloured con­vert­ibles, guests at Chanel’s Cruise show found them­selves in a beau­ti­ful and vi­brant lo­ca­tion at a his­toric turn­ing point in in­ter­na­tional re­la­tions. Ev­ery­thing about Karl Larg­er­feld’s col­lec­tion screamed French-cuban en­tente cor­diale, and what bet­ter sym­bol of this than the beret? In­trin­si­cally Gal­lic yet in­escapably Che Gue­vara. Lager­feld sent pearl-stud­ded ver­sions shim­my­ing down the run­way along­side flo­ral-trim fe­do­ras and spec­ta­tor shoes. The 1950s cars of Cuba ap­peared as prints on sev­eral pieces, while denim jack­ets came with clus­ters of Chanel-themed pins. In lieu of a tra­di­tional fi­nale, the show ended with a lively conga line of danc­ing mod­els and mu­si­cians. All in all, a real coup. Chris­tian Dior
