Here’s your quick first look at Chanel’s upcoming cha-cha-cha Cruise 2017 collection, inspired by Cuba and staged in Havana sometime in May this year. And with just months before the collection hits our sunny shores, a preview is definitely in order. So what’s up first? Well, the accessories, of course. Besides the usual range of jewellery ranging from bracelets to earrings and even pearl-festooned necklaces, you’ll also see lots and lots of brooches inspired by the tropical iconography of the Caribbean.
In other words, brooches in the form of parrots, brooches in the form of palm trees, hey, there’s even a pineapple-shaped brooch that comes adorned with faux pearls, some of which you’ll see above.
One of the key pieces (or at least to me anyway) is this stunning cuff. Swathed in khaki green canvas and covered with more pins, it’s definitely a statement piece of jewellery, filled with fun tropical nuances including an avocado with a CC logo on it.
Last but not least, here’s how a typical pearl necklace from the season will look like, decorated with multi-coloured daisies in the most tropical of summer hues. More updates to come, including bags and SLGs, I promise, so do stay tuned! #CocoCuba
