Chanel’s latest Cruise Collection combines the glamor of the Champs-Elysees with the vibrant energy of Havana. Karl Lagerfeld tapped into the Caribbean destination known for its colorful culture, lively music, and retro automobiles, which we captured through special windows currently on display at our Downtown Flagship.

For a certain set, it’s the accessories that excite the most, and this collection does not disappoint. The classic men’s derby was updated with playful and modern detailing creating the perfect shoe for the sartorial city dweller, many of whom were on hand at our Downtown Flagship yesterday to celebrate the collection. The group—which included editors and influencers like Audrey Gelman, Leigh Lezark, Jen Brill, Maria Duenas-Jacobs, Harley Viera-Newton, Gucci Westman, and Laura Love—were invited to choose a pair from the collection before sitting down to a celebratory private luncheon. Take a peek at our highlights, and pop in store to get a pair for yourself.
