As part of the month of the French culture in Cuba, the House of CHANEL presents the exhibition “Obra en Proceso / Work in Progress” by Karl Lagerfeld at the Factoría Habana art gallery. To celebrate its inauguration two days before the Cruise 2017 show, guests were able to discover more than 200 photographs by the famous designer.
The exhibition is divided into three sections representing Karl Lagerfeld’s main interests – fashion, architecture and landscapes. It explores the great diversity of subjects, approaches and techniques that define the very personal and subtle interpretation that makes his photography. For him, a photo is not just an image but also a unique visual object. It is open until tomorrow and the admission is free.

Enjoy my personal moments of the opening celebration:
On our way to the exhibition through the streets of the old town of Havana…

With lovely Stella Tennant in front of Karl Lagerfeld’s photos of her.
I fell in love with Lagerfeld’s photos of his muse Baptiste Giabiconi…
… that show the model in a different way.
More to come from Cuba! Stay tuned!
