Yesterday, donbleek.com reported that creative director Karl Lagerfeld may soon be ready to give his farewell to the House of Chanel, after 33 years at the helm of the house, after we received an alert via Page Six.

The upcoming Chanel resort show in Cuba next month was rumored to be Lagerfeld‘s last bow on the runway.

The luxury house spoke to British Vogue and denied the rumor: “The rumors about Mr Lagerfeld discontinuing the collections and the cruise collection show in Cuba being the last are unsubstantiated,” a spokesperson told the publication this morning.

Lagerfeld took over just 12 years after the founder’s death, and is said to have a whole-life contract with Chanel. He also have more than 50 years at Fendi.

Last year, donbleek.com reported that “Chanel will cruise to Havana, Cuba for its 2017 show.” The French house’s cruise 2017 is set to take place in Havana, Cuba on May 3, 2016.

According to a release from Chanel, the “cultural richness and opening up of Cuba has long inspired Lagerfeld.”
