Chanel Turned The Streets Of Havana Into A Runway

The fashion house headed to Cuba for its Cruise 2016/2017 show.

Chanel took over the streets of Havana, Cuba, on Tuesday 3 May to showcase their 2016/2017 Cruise collection.

Head designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld presented the inter-seasonal line on the Paseo del Prado street, which had been transformed into a catwalk.

The show itself was a private affair, with celebrities and supermodels like Gisele Bündchen, Vanessa Paradis, Tilda Swinton and Vin Diesel in attendance - but thousands of Havana residents watched from balconies and behind barriers.
