#FactoriaHabana: Karl Lagerfeld exhibition in Cuba

May 5th, 2016 / by / in: Exquisite experiences / No responses

I’ve always wanted to visit Cuba. I admit I am still fascinated by her colors, by her retro cich vibe, by her history and by her people. But I’ve never imagined that I would visit it through the beautiful images from Chanel Cruise to Cuba. For a couple of days, I have opened the Instagram once at three minutes, just to see new and new pictures with #ChanelCruiseCuba and #FactoriaHabana. Why this fever?

Well, that’s because “Obra en Proceso / Work in Progress” exhibition was opened, in the presence of Karl Lagerfeld, at the Factoría Habana art gallery. This exhibition is divided into three sections representing the designer’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 Karl Lagerfeld’s photography. For him, a photo is not just an image but also a unique visual object. Guests included ambassador Gaspard Ulliel, actresses Alma Jodorowsky and Nathalia Acevedo, director Deniz Gamze Ergüven and writer Loulou Robert discovered more than 200 photographs by Karl Lagerfeld.
