COCO CUBA – COCO everywhere! As you might have noticed Coco Chanel is one of my favorite brands. It is historical, fashionable and chic like no other. The French fashion brand with the famous German designer Karl Lagerfeld is known for its pretentious fashion shows all around the world. This year the brand presented the cruise collection 2017 in Havana, Cuba at Paseo del Prado with live music played by locals.
The country inspires the whole cruise collection. It is colorful and rich in fabric due to layers and volume. I adore how Karl Lagerfeld always manages to mix the Coco Chanel identity with several modern and cultural influences. There is no other designer with the ability to reinterpret a brand’s cores so well – again and again.
My Coco Cuba shirt is the absolute must-have of this collection. The vintage print and colorful font looks so great with jeans – a used or destroyed Levis like my wedgie icon fit is always a good choice for such a combination. Additionally I advise to style the Coco Cuba pieces with a colorful detailing – my pink vintage Prada coat and the bright blue Gianvito Rossi heels a perfect for my casual Chanel look. But not only pieces from this years Cuba collection are great for an elegant-casual look, any Chanel piece is timeless, chic and always trendy! There are several pieces from Chanel in my wardrobe – from classic bags to chic accessories – Chanel spices up every outfit, every time.
I dare to say that Chanel might be the most influential brand with Karl Lagerfeld by its side. Chanel = Karl; Karl= Chanel. Even though Coco Chanel is the heart of the brand, Karl is its soul. And I can’t wait for the next cruise collections and Chanel shows!
