The new 2016/17 collection will be presented on May 3rd in Havana by Karl Lagerfeld. Just like Gabrielle Chanel in her day, he has been creating these collections since 1983, and taking them abroad since 2006.
"It’s a cosmopolitan take on local fashion", he said at the last Cruise show in Seoul. The spirit of these collections is to conjure up images of distant horizons. They are inspired by a theme or identity that is often associated with a new destination. There is nothing folky or nostalgic about it; the idea is to capture the ambiance of a place, to draw inspiration from its landscapes, to be influenced by its people, its light, its culture, its colors...
Every silhouette is a representation of a new reality mixing old and new worlds, modernity, and a personal interpretation. From this melting pot of influences, from these redefined touches, a new collection is born, between two seasons.

As part of the month of French culture in Cuba, Karl Lagerfeld is presenting more than 200 of his photographs in Havana before unveiling his new Cruise collection.
The exhibition entitled "Obra en Proceso / Work in Progress" explores the diversity of photographic motifs, approaches and techniques that define Karl Lagerfeld’s subtle and highly personal interpretation of fashion, architecture and landscape. "Today, photography is part of my life. It completes the circle between my artistic and professional restlessness," says the creator.
