The 'Little Black Jacket' Exhibition by Chanel

Chanel has unveiled a book entitled ‘The
Little Black Jacket’ with a coordinating photography exhibition launched by
Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. The exhibition is being hosted by the
Saatchi Gallery and showcases one hundred and nine celebrity photographs
including Jane Birkin, Sarah Jessica-Parker, Georgia-May Jagger, Anna Wintour
and many more. Lagerfeld and Roitfeld have styled each photograph in extremely
different ways to highlight the versatility and cross-generational appeal of
the Chanel jacket.

This was Chanel’s opportunity to
celebrate its rich heritage and cement its iconic fashion status by bringing it
in to the present by collaborating with well-known stylish personalities who
are highly-revered in their field. It’s incredibly difficult to select a
favourite image but the Anna Wintour portrait is particularly striking. The
shot is taken from behind and Wintour is instantly recognisable due to her
iconic bob. Her hair has now cemented itself in the fashion hall of fame!
