Palm Trees. Sequins. Cigars. Old Cars. It was a Cuban dream at the Chanel Cruise 2016/17 Fashion Show yesterday. Chanel nailed their fashion show by incorporating all things that come to mind when thinking about Cuba but maintained their backbone. There was tweed and beautiful materials of course, but 1950s cars and cigar box handbags.
I loved it! In Florida, it’s basically resort wear all year long and this show definitely gave me some great inspiration. I definitely want to get over to Cuba one of these days. By the way, if you are in Cuba Karl Lagerfeld is showing more than 200 of his photographs at Factoria Habana until May 12th.

So, I just love the leather leggings and chain boots at the Paris Fashion Week Chanel Fall 2013 Runway Show. Chanel’s show was about the only one I have seen full of black, white and grey that completely compelled me. I always say that I only respect a fellow designer that inspires us with ingenuity or innovation. For a 100-year-old brand, we expect the best from Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld delivered this week. Check out close up photos of the white and black leather legging and chair boot below.
