Watch: Chanel #CocoCuba Cruise 2017

You need to listen to the Cuban musicians bring Paseo del Prado to life

The runway photographs and close-ups were one thing, but short of actually being on Paseo del Prado, watching video highlights from the Chanel Cruise 2017 show in Cuba adds a whole new dimension to Karl Lagerfeld's creations.

Every kick of a skirt and every stride taken in lust-worthy shoes were accompanied by lively music from Cuban musicians: pianist and composer Aldo Lopez Gavilan, musical duo (and twin sisters) Ibeyi and rumba band Rumberos De Cuba. And oh, that finale! There's just nothing like a parade of dancing Chanel models, lead by Karl himself. Take note: this is how you shut down a whole street for a runway show.
