Introducing the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection. Nicolas Ghesquière has taken his latest collection to Japan. The show was held at Miho Museum, a one hour drive from Kyoto. The collection pays homage to Japanese culture, with references to Kabuki, Japanese landscape, Samurai armor, obi belts and manga. The season’s accessories features unique designs, wherein the Speedy, Petite Malle and new flap bag in Monogram Canvas and Monogram Reverse, features Kabuki eyes as illustrated by fashion designer Kansaï Yamamoto. A bucket bag inspired by Japanese lantern was also seen in the runway. The brand’s iconic Hat Box Bag comes in mini sizes, made available in Louis Vuitton’s signature materials such as the Monogram Canvas, Monogram Reverse and Epi leather. New hobo and metallic shoulder bags were also included in the collection.

Chanel Cruise 2017 Wood Kiss-Lock Bag

When it comes to fanciful minaudières, no one does it better than Chanel, and as with tradition every season will see the launch of at least one such key piece to celebrate the collection. And for #ChanelCruiseCuba, nothing is more apt than doing a take on the ubiquitous cigar box, something that’s as synonymous as vintage American cars and colonial houses awash in pastel hues.

Measuring some 18 cm across by 15 cm by 5 cm, the body of the bag is mostly wood, with the detailing around the perimeter of it looking like it’s been laser-engraved. Then come the metal embellishments, from Coco Chanel’s enamelled portrait that sits in the middle surrounded by a string of pearls to the gold coins that each come etched with different icons of the French luxury house, from the unmistakable camellia to the number 5.

Lined with the lushest of metallic gold lambskin leathers, this is truly one of those collectors’ pieces that won’t look out of place on a shelf already covered with Classic Flap and Boy Chanel bags, and something that will take you back to everything that’s good about Havana in an instant.

Chanel’s Cruise 2017 Show To Take Place In Cuba

Other Brands

Is Karl Lagerfeld ever going to stop working restlessly, or at least start seeking more conventional places to show his Chanel’s cruise collections? Probably not, or at least not now, as proved by his latest decision to show the upcoming Chanel cruise 2017 collection in (drum rolls, please) Havana, Cuba! Although being a culturally rich country full of traditions and history, Cuba has until this year been almost inaccessible to anyone, who was willing to seek any sort of inspiration from this amazing country.

Chanel's Cruise 2017 Show To Take Place In Havana, Cuba

In fact, for a few months already, with trade relations starting to open up between Cuba and the USA, travelers, businessmen and artists have decided to finally explore the Caribbean archipelago. Cuba has increased its popularity since earlier this year, becoming one of the most popular destinations for many celebrities, such as Katy Perry, Rihanna and the rock & roll star Mick Jagger. Karl Lagerfeld also decided to contribute to the new Cuban chapter, explaining his choice of the location for the Chanel cruise 2017 show stating that “the cultural wealth and the opening of Cuba to the world, make the country a source of inspiration for me and Chanel”.

On the other hand, being the first Latin American country to ever host a Chanel cruise collection’s fashion show, Cuba will also represent a new chapter in Chanel’s history. So, for this forthcoming cruise collection we must expect a mixture of French, Caribbean and Latin American influences, which will probably give Chanel a whole new and unexpected look.

However, although Chanel’s fashion show is going to be the first major fashion event to hit the Cuban capital (its cruise 2017 collection is set to take place in Havana on May 3, 2016), Lagerfeld is not the first fashion designer who found himself greatly inspired by the Cuban culture and nature. Most recently, in fact, designers such as Proenza Schouler’s creative directors and Stella McCartney have been influenced by Cuba, giving their resort 2016 collections a colorful and cheerful Caribbean look.

Cuba, which tried to enter the fashion circuit in the late Eighties with a fashion show called ‘Cubamoda’ (sponsored by the French brand Contrex and which hosted designers such as Paco Rabanne), may finally be ready to enter the spotlight thanks to Chanel. There’s already great anticipation about the event, and many newspapers and reporters can’t help but show their great excitement about it.“In Cuba next spring, leading fashion figures will gather in Havana in one of the most anticipated events in the past half century,” stated an official report by AIN, the Cuban official distributor.

Since the early ’00s, Chanel’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld has circled the globe with his cruise fashion events, flying from Dubai to Singapore, Venice and, most recently, to Seoul. He has always drawn great inspiration from these exotic and exciting cultures, creating some of his most acclaimed pieces. Cuba’s unexplored territory is surely giving a lot of work to Lagerfeld, and we can’t do anything but wait for the designer’s next unconventional show.
