When you think of the ideal place to buy a bikini, places like Los Angeles or Rio de Janeiro might make your dream shopping list.

Havana might not immediately spring to mind when you think of designer bikinis and lingerie, but it should. A funky boutique called Cris-Cris in Habana Vieja (Old Havana) is changing that notion.


Flashy Fashion at Cris-Cris in Cuba


With gorgeous beaches and sensuous cabaret performances at places like Tropicana, Cuba’s bright colors and spectacular musicality make it a design inspiration heaven.

Cris-Cris’ founder and lead designer grew up in Germany. She founded her first boutique in Berlin in 1999. In 2004, Cris-Cris’ designer took a trip to the Caribbean with her daughter and fell in love with Cuba. The Havana boutique opened its doors in 2007.
