Karl Lagerfeld's Cuban Chanel 2016/2017 runway presentation was a celebration of Havana fashion and was hosted in the historic city. The show featured famous attendees like Kristen Stewart, Tilda Swinton, Vin Diesel and Vanessa Paradis among others.

The Cuban Chanel show is described by Chantal Fernandez of 'Fasionista' as a collection that "will focus on a mysterious, musical Havana high life still associated with prerevolutionary exuberance, with some military elements thrown in."

Putting his French influence on Cuban culture, designer Karl Lagerfeld fuses classic Havana fashions with contemporary elements that are synonymous with the Chanel brand. The stunning collection features vibrant colors, tweed textiles, glamorous accessories and many other mixed accents.
