The Little Black Jacket

New York set the scene last week for the launch of Karl Lagerfeld and long-time French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s latest collaborative project, “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited”. The project, a photography exhibition and much awaited coffee table book showcases black-and-white photographs, shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself that pay homage to the iconic clothing piece.
More than a hundred celebrities, actors, artists, singers, and rock stars, each with their own individual flair, are shot wearing a black, tweed Chanel Jacket, to a surprisingly varied effect. “It’s play time with an item that is timeless” according to Lagerfeld. “The Chanel jacket has become the symbol of certain elegance, feminine, with an air of nonchalance, classic and timeless, that is of all times”. The proof is in the photographs; Chanel’s Little Black Jacket remains to be a dynamic staple that can be worn by anyone, anyway.

The book is scheduled for release this spring.
