The Paseo del Prado, the emblematic avenue running through Havana from the city's historic 16th century district to its modern heart, is the venue for the Cruise 2016/17 collection show.

The boulevard, whose name means “meadow walk” in Spanish, was originally laid out in the 18th century and was redesigned by the French landscape architect Nicolas Forestier in 1928. Eight spectacular bronze lions stand guard on every street corner all the way to the sea front. They were the work of two sculptors, Jean Puiforcat – another Frenchman – and Juan Comas, an expert in bronze casting. The locals in Havana have always enjoyed strolling in the shade of the ancient trees along the central walkway. The colonial-era buildings, cinemas, theaters and colonnaded mansions along the Prado are reminiscent of the Baroque and neo-Classical style of European capitals such as Madrid, Paris and Vienna.

While many buildings show signs of aging, UNESCO has placed Old Havana on its list of world heritage sites, preserving its authenticity for generations to come.

BETWEEN TWO SEASONS
THE CRUISE COLLECTION

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.

KARL LAGERFELD ESPONE A CUBA

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.

TILDA SWINTON: DOPPIO SCATTO

Fotografata da Jean-Baptiste Mondino per la rivista "Madame Figaro" , l’attrice britannica indossa capi della Collezione Métiers d’Art 2015/16 “Paris in Rome”.

Di fronte alla macchina fotografica Tilda si sdoppia, citando il suo ruolo nel film “Ave, Caesar!” dei fratelli Coen, nel quale interpreta due sorelle gemelle.
