Chanel Does Resort With a Fun-Loving, Havana-Inspired Twist

While we're still reeling from Tuesday's Met Gala, Karl Lagerfeld turned the attention to Cuba, the inspiration and setting for Chanel's Resort '17 collection. The runway was presented at the Paseo del Prado, Havana's main roadway and a lasting symbol of the ties between France and Cuba. That served as the perfect backdrop for a collection that draws on the same theme, a reinterpretation of Cuban-inspired classics with a contemporary, quintessential Chanel twist.

On that note, Karl's lineup offered a womanly, organza guayabera, for starters, then graphic palm prints and reimagined military suiting paired with brightened-up versions of the label's tweed suiting, petal pinks, and an elegant black-and-white palette. From head to toe, you could see the influences of both Karl's world and the vibrant culture of Cuba: Panama hats to top each look, retro saddle shoes, and embellished slides. There was an ease to it all, the sense that these looks weren't just staged here but were made to be worn on a hot Summer night, dancing through the streets of Havana — which is exactly what they did after the show. Take a look right here to get a glimpse of the #CocoCuba collection.
