Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Flash! -

For one balmy day in May, all eyes were on Ha­vana as the Cuban cap­i­tal hosted its first global fash­ion event: Chanel’s Cruise ’17 run­way show. A ca­coph­ony of mu­sic and horns from 170 candy-coloured vintage con­vert­ibles sig­nalled the ar­rival of 600 guests from all over the world. Paseo del Prado, the city’s iconic 170m-long tiled prom­e­nade flanked by colour­ful man­sions, was crammed with lo­cals keen to catch the ac­tion on the world’s long­est cat­walk. Karl Lager­feld pre­sented Chanel tweeds rein­ter­preted with Cuban ex­u­ber­ance; a spin on the guayabera white shirts that are de rigueur to Ha­vana; and the “Cuban tux”, seen on Stella Ten­nant and cigar-smok­ing male mod­els alike. The car­ni­val at­mos­phere car­ried on to the af­ter-party at Plaza de la Cat­e­dral, where frozen mo­ji­tos flowed freely and French ac­tress Cécile Cas­sel tan­goed the night away with Karl Lager­feld to the eu­phonic rhythms of a Cuban band.
