Previous weekend, Chanel opened its Little Black Jacket exhibition in London at the Saatchi Gallery.
Back in 1954, Coco Chanel dreamed up the design for a little black jacket. Today, the jacket is one of the most iconic pieces known in the fashion world. As an hommage to Coco and her famous quote; "fashion passes, style remains", this photo exhibition wanted to show that Chanel is the label that creates clothes that could be worn for ever.
The exhibition counts about 100 black and white photographs of Karl Lagerfeld's favourite muses wearing the label's iconic jacket - both men and women-. It features people of all ages, from fashion editors to hip hop stars. They are all photographed by the designer himself. Everything is styled by former Editor in chief from Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld.
If you can't make it to the exhibition, no worries, all these portraits and dozens more feature in The Little Black Jacket, a luxurious cloth-bound coffee table book that will be in stores around november.
This is a preview of what to expect...
