Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Karl Lagerfeld hadn't stepped foot in Cuba before Chanel hit Havana for this week's cruise 2017 presentation, according to Women's Wear Daily, but his collection definitely nailed the city's colorful aesthetic.

Chanel tends to finds inspiration from the local culture of the cities where it stages its cruise and pre-fall shows, and the fashion house has taken its shows around the globe to Rome, Seoul, Salzburg, Dubai, Dallas, and now, Havana. "The collection is an idea of a chic and modern Cuba," Lagerfeld told WWD. "It’s easy pieces."

Now Airbnb has definitive proof of how accurately Chanel interpreted the colors of Cuba. The lodging rental service searched its site and managed to find an Airbnb listing for just about every look that went down the runway on Tuesday. Here are some photo comparisons between listings and runway looks that Airbnb sent over to Racked today.

A few of Airbnb's matches with runway looks are uncanny, channeling sunny, vibrant colors like mint, marigold, and turquoise. Scroll through to see, but warning: It might make you consult Airbnb for Cuban vacation planning.
