Chanel – Little Black Jacket Exhibition

Every woman knows about that important and classic sexy item in our closet and it’s called the LBD. Truthfully, we all own at least one. Ever heard of the LBJ?

Luxury fashion house Chanel is most distinctly known for its recognizable double C logo, quilted handbags and sophisticated pearls. Simply stated, Chanel is even recognizable to the fashionably challenged. Coco Chanel formulated a type of fashion that was timeless and the pieces were meant to be forever fashionable – worn always and worn many ways. One of those forever faithful classics is the fanciful tweed jacket. 86 years later, Karl Lagerfeld joins Carine Roitfeld to re-invent the jacket to speak to the new generation and keep the brand relevant.

There comes times in your life when you realize that having a travel agent friend could really come in handy. This is one of those times for me. Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition opened recently in London, but realistically jet setting to the UK before October 28 isn’t in my fashionable future, so I will settle for the hard copy for Christmas. Hope you’re reading this mom.

Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld are two no-bullshit type of people – they make a fantastic pair. The exhibition features black and white photographs that are styled by Carine leaving Karl himself behind the camera. KL’s favourite muses were all on board to introduce the original, artistic expression that redefines how we wear the iconic little black jacket into 113 different approaches.







Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye, Uma Thurman, Will.I.Am, Alexa Chung, Daphnee Guiness, Georgia May Jagger, Edie Campbell, Elizabeth Olsen, Claudia Schiffer, Jane Birkin and obviously Sophia Coppola – one of KL’s most noted muses – are displayed along the walls in the Saatchi Gallery. It goes to show that versatility is bound to your own creative side. Or Karl Lagerfelds.
