'The Little Black Jacket' is the amazing new exhibition by Chanel running from the 12th - 28th October. Karl Lagerfeld has collaborated with Carine Roiteld to create a series of photographs of 113 celebrities and fashion personalities wearing Chanel's iconic Little Black Jacket in their own style.
The tweed slightly boxey in style, LBJ, has been an iconic symbol of the brand for decades, after being launched in 1954. What better jacket for Karl to photograph than this one!
Harper's Bazaar's global fashion director Carine Roitfeld, (previously French Vogue) styled each celebrity to perfection, in the style which best showed their personality, check out the Anna Wintour photograph (third down) -I feel this picture suits her to perfection.
Anna ...... ! Who else would it be!!!
The launch was as star studded as the book itself, with the likes of Amanda Harlech, Alice Dellal, Poppy Delevingne and Keira Knightley. If only I could have stayed longer to absorb the fabulous atmosphere of the event but sure enough my dreadful diary management meant I had classically double booked, so after a quick in and out I to dashed off to a Marina and The Diamonds gig! Fabulous days!!!
The exhibition runs until the 28th October and is being held at the Saatchi Gallery Duke Of York Square Chelsea, and is well worth a visit. My tip for this weekend would be, before visiting the gallery, grab a bite to eat at the Chelsea market which is situated literally next door and has the most diiivine street food!
