Chanel’s cruise show in the country was for the launch of their newest Resort collection, and was held at Havana’s Paseo del Prado. That said, it’s only fitting that Karl would pull inspiration from the country’s festive vibe. The show even ended with a conga line!
It was also attended by well-known personalities like Gisele Bundchen, Tilda Swinton, Vin Diesel, and Tony Castro, Fidel Castro’s grandson. Rock band The Rolling Stones also performed a free concert.
However, in light of the show, a question was also raised: Was this glamorous show somewhat offensive to locals who are living in poverty?

If you put it that way, it is very extravagant. But it seems the luxury brand sees promise in the country as they may open a boutique in Cuba soon. The question is, will it have good sales given the numbers mentioned above?
