We have seen Karl Lagerfeld take his shows all over the world and make all different types of stunning presentations, but this is the first time a runway show of the sort happens in Cuba!

The designer's Chanel’s Resort 2017 Collection and show are inspired by the richness and colors of the Cuban culture, now that both the United States and the Caribbean nation are restoring relations.

Numerous celebrities including Vanessa Paradis, Tilda Swinton, Buena Vista Social Club member, Omara Portuondo, Vin Diesel, and one of Lagerfield’s longtime muses, Gisele Bündchen, were in attendance.

Attendants and models drove to the show in a caravan of colorful classic cars, and the runway took place in one of Cuba’s most important avenues, Paseo del Prado, which is situated in Old Havana.

One of the highlights of the show included Antonio Castro’s appearance. He is former president Fidel Castro’s grandson (pictured above) and at 19 years old, he is an aspiring model better known as “Tony” Castro. While his participation definitely raised some eyebrows, given the leader's railings against capitalism, Tony stated that he is thrilled to have been a part of the event. “It is an honor for all Cubans for this big event to take place here,” he said.

The collection included colorful pieces, t-shirts with phrases like “Viva Coco Libre,” pearls, flowers, tweed dresses, embroidered maxi skirts, silk pants, fedoras, denim pieces, airy sweaters and all that fashion dreams are made of.

Lagerfeld could not attend Monday night’s Met Gala, even though he was an honorary chair along with Louis Vuitton artistic director Nicolas Ghesquiere and Muccia Prada. The Chanel king found himself preparing for the big show, which has been rumored to be his last show due to his deteriorating health, but nothing has been confirmed. Lagerfield looked absolutely fine and glamorous as usual while in the island.
