Despite his 82 and rumors of an imminent resignation (the house of Chanel has already officially refuted), Karl Lagerfeld again gave 100 points ahead to much younger colleagues. The selection of the Cuban capital Havana as the venue for the showcase of Chanel's new cruise collection has put this event on a par with the recent visit of US President Barack Obama and the Rolling Stones concert.

The show, styled by Karin Roitfeld, was chosen on the small cobbled boulevard El Paseo Del Prado, which separates the old and new cities.

Tilda Swinton and Vanessa Paradis flew to Havana from the constant friends of the Chanel house, and from the new ones - the actor Vin Diesel.

Among the two dozen models who participated in the show were those whom Karl Lagerfeld invited as special guests - namely, Gisele Bundchen and Stella Tenant.

The Art Deco Hotel Nacional de Cuba, built in the 1930s, was rented for guests for three days.

170 Buick, Cadillac and Oldsmobile oldtimers were rented to transport guests from the hotel to the show site and back.

The show, which was replete with retro prints featuring cars, Che-berets and Panama hats, culminated in a local orchestra and traditional Cuban conga dance.

On the day of the show, the Factoria Habana gallery in Havana opened a photo exhibition by Karl Lagerfeld entitled "Obra en Processo / Work in Progress".

After the screening, Karl Lagerfeld took a walk in old Havana in the company of Hudson's godson Kroenig and did a couple of steps to the rhythms of salsa.
