“I went down [to Havana] and was able to handpick it off the runway, which was very cool, and bring it straight to France,” Stylist Tara Swennen
Karl Lagerfeld took Chanel’s Cruise 2017 collection where no other runway has gone before—Cuba.
Why not the Pope, Obama, House of Lies , Fast and Furious and now Lagerfeld with Chanel have just changed the game. It was fun, it was outdoors all those amazing vintage cars and colours and to boot you could smoke cigars. Now that is what I call a party.
This summer I will be trekking across Canada – travelling coast to coast. This will be a solo walk that will take place for a minimum of three months – Melina Querel
CHANEL is all about adventure. Coco Chanel lived the adventure. Karl Lagerfeld always takes you for an adventure. Now on this historic day in Cuba for fashion meet a Canadian model who like Lagerfeld is about to take you along on her great adventure, model Melina Querel.
I have – for as long as I can remember – always wanted to leave home and go on an adventure. When I was young, I used to pack a little bundle to the end of a stick, sling it across my shoulder and tell my mother that if one day I disappeared not to worry because I had packed provisions. When I was eighteen, I went to walk the Compostela – a pilgrimage route starting in France in the Camino des Arles and concluding in northern Spain. My passion for this project was born in my youth, nurtured throughout that walk and emboldened by ambitions
Melina Querel, is going to walk the longest catwalk, right across Canada, yes that is one long walk, and you can learn a lot more of Melina’s project and yes go give the girl some support on her UPCOMING PROJECTS.
The first time I met Melina was backstage at Canada’s Next Top Model Show. This is a video from that day, which will give you a peek into her great personality, and a few of her Instagram post’s please give her a follow and your support. Model who rocks, that is Melina. Melina Facebook Follow.

History is being made in Cuba once again in 2016. The first commercial passenger cruise ship sailed into Havana from The United States after 40 years of a cold-war standoff in relations between the two nations.
Chanel also hits the island for the first time in Latin America. People from all over the world are coming to Cuba and Cuba is ready to meet the challenge.
There could be no better time for me to introduce you to a Canadian born, girl with blood from everywhere flowing through her veins, model Jeri Ali.
Here is some of her Instagram, Tweets and images.
Follow her on her social media.

For some of my girlfriends over the years I have run up and down, Bond Street, Sloan Street, Rodeo Drive and Rue Saint-Honoré look for that “It Purse”. What was I thinking, when I could now just go to Chanel Supermarket. Karl Lagerfeld played to the industry’s consumerist heart by parading his autumn/winter collection down supermarket aisles, during Paris Fashion Week. Here are some of the wild cool Chanel Purses you will find at this supermarket.
For a girl who may not be a total bag lady, we thinks it’s pretty awesome that when she does pick one up, she goes for Chanel. Go big or go home, right? We can totally se why Lagerfeld chose the girl with the half-shaved head and ripped tights over a more predictable choice. While Alice climbs the modeling ranks as the face of the new Chanel Boy bag — which she loves for the stingray, leather, and chains (us too, Alice) — perhaps we won’t hold our breath that she’ll be spotted in pearls anytime soon. This badass beauty is much more the menswear fan: “I like to be comfortable and I think men dress more comfortably than ladies.” Peep the video below for even more Alice antidotes.
