VIDEO | Back to Cuba with Chanel's Cruise 2016/17 campaign

A deserted sun-kissed beach, the warm, salty sea air, the shaded alleys of a little southern town, and two women, alone and aloof. For the Chanel 2016/17 Cruise Collection shown in Cuba in May 2016, bathed in light, these silhouettes celebrate both an assumed ultra-femininity and the raffish insouciance of a tomboy allure sunshine. Rendered sublime by Karl Lagerfeld’s camera, the colours, inspired by the vibrant facades of Havana, play around with the House's classics.
