Chanel's The Little Black Jacket by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld! Xx


The Little Black Jacket Cover
 to be published by Steidl Göttingen in Autumn 2012

Coco Chanel originally gave us the Little Black Dress -  and that became an icon.
 Karl Lagerfeld has now created the most fabulous Exhibition 
and soon to be published book 'The Little Black Jacket'!
It is a series of black and white portraits 
of Stars wearing the legendary Chanel black Jacket designed back in the 1950s. 
This is a story about creativity, true individuality and originality.
 Therefore, in essence an essay in True Style

It took six days of to shoot -  in New York, Cannes and Studio 7L in Paris.
 A photographer and stylist's dream - 
taking portraits of the most talented people in their fields 
of Art, fashion, Film, music and literature etc' 
and asking for them to portray their Personality 
- their Raison D'Etre through the medium of the 
beautiful 'd'objet' that is the CHANEL little black jacket. 
And wow what variations we see - what different plumages!!
 The Images are absolutely fascinating.
  
The show opened on March 24th during the 
incredible 4 day Chanel Soiree that 
 recently occurred in Tokyo, 
which also included:
 The Spring-Summer 2012 Haute Couture show replica 
at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
