Remember those Chanel suitcases models toted down the brand’s S/S ’16 runway? They’re going to be put to good use, because Karl Lagerfeld’s crew his headed to Cuba.

As Cuba opens up, it is increasingly becoming a source of inspiration for the fashion set. Both Proenza Schouler and Stella McCartney looked to Cuba for their Resort ’16 collections, but Karl Lagerfeld is upping the ante. The designer has just announced that he will be presenting his upcoming Cruise ’17 show in Havana on May 3. Considering Chanel’s previous Cruise romps in far-flung destinations like Singapore, Dubai, and Seoul, there’s no doubt that Lagerfeld’s forthcoming spectacular will be an event to remember.
