Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition comes to London…

After touring the world, from Tokyo to New York, Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition will make its way to London’s Saatchi Gallery this October.

Beginning life as a coffee table book featuring ‘friends of the House’ (models, stylists, designers, musicians) wearing Chanel’s classic little black jacket and making it their own; the project is Mr Monochrome, Karl Lagerfeld’s and ‘the world’s chicest grandmother’ Carine Roitfeld’s baby.

Displaying the timeless and effortless elegance that the classic Chanel jacket possesses (and indeed the brand as a whole) the exhibition is formed from 113 photographs, all shot by Lagerfeld himself.

Viewers will no doubt realise the versatility of such a garment as the likes of Joan Smalls turns the LBJ into a turban, bandeau and skirt, Georgia May Jagger adds ultimate sex appeal and in quite the contrast, Freja Beha Erichsen transforms into a nun.
