Cuba seems to be the new fashion land. Of course, Chanel took the hornes and did the big runway in Cuba with the Cruise show, now it became more attractive. Great opportunity for designers to explore! Just like Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli.

"It's really unbelievable, how it's like time has stopped [there]," said Chiuri, who last visited Cuba a few years ago. "We are Italian, and when you arrive there, you feel like you're remembering a place in Italy from when you were a kid." 

The Cuban influences were seen along the collection starting from 70s styles up to military, ethnic, romantic - an entire history walk through Spanish, American and African influences.So, the entire 78 pieces line up showcased at Andy Warhol's former Factory in New York did not prove any wrong towards the Cuban style making it modern, transiting time and turning it into a bohemian modern rhapsody.
