Karl Lagerfeld took his Resort 2017 Chanel show to Cuba today, bringing with him his celebrity friends, collaborators, and a slew of fashion press. In Cuba, guests were treated to a long weekend of activities that culminated in the house’s Cuba-inspired Resort show. Aside from the scenery, highs will no doubt include both a Gisele Bündchen and Tilda Swinton sighting and Kendall Jenner walking the runway. Read on for 13 things you need to know about Chanel’s Cuban jaunt.
