The Little Black Jacket
12 October – 4 November 2012
CHANEL’s photographic exhibition dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld‘s latest book, ‘The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’, will open at the Saatchi Gallery in London in October. Following on from Tokyo, New York, Taipei and Hong Kong, this special event underlines the brand’s values of creativity, modernity and excellence.
The public will discover the versatility and timelessness of the iconic CHANEL jacket through Karl Lagerfeld’s 113 photographs, modelled on a range of friends of the House, with each personality adapting the garment to reflect their own inimitable style – worn as a cape on singer Lily Allen, draped around model Stella Tennant, or even transformed into a vest on model Edie Campbell.
Running simultaneously with the exhibition, window displays in CHANEL’s Bond Street, Sloane Street and Brompton Cross boutiques will present a selection of jackets from the latest collections. ‘The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’ will be available worldwide in bookshops this autumn.
