For the CHANEL 2016/17 Cruise collection, Karl Lagerfeld created a modern and raffish silhouette, blending Parisian audacity with exotic nonchalance. Scintillating colours, upbeat music, a sunny landscape and smiles, the codes of the House flirt playfully with Cuban imagery and culture. This collection’s ultra-chic and boyish adventurer displays a contemporary look that’s bold, refined and unique to CHANEL.

To a pulsating rhythm, the brand’s iconic bags filed by, from fanny packs and backpacks to shoppers, bucket bags and minaudières. An explosion of colours in khaki, red, navy and royal blue, green, pink, coral and oranges, alone or fused in luminescent combinations. From sparkling embroideries to handcrafted macramé, the CHANEL handbag line constantly bounced back and forth from joyful to ultra-chic, from simple to sophisticated.
