The Little Black Jacket – Tribute to the Classic
- Fashion fades, only style remains the same.
Finally I am going to have a lavish addition to my collection of coffee table books.
Last night in Tokyo’s G-building in Aoyama, Chanel presented the latest collaboration/project of Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. The famous fashion savvy duo have created the weighty book with photographs of celebrities wearing the timeless classic item – Chanel Little Black Jacket.
113 Big-name personalities from the world of fashion, show business, music and cinema - Yoko Ono, Alexa Chung, Sophia Coppola, Lily Allen, Kanye West, Charlotte Casiraghi, Linda Evangelista, Stella Tennant, Lily Donaldson, Riccardo Tisci and many more (including Karl Lagerfeld) were photographed wearing Chanel signature tweed jacket with trimmed braided edges and silk lining, weighed down with a gold chain.
Everyone looked different and wore the jacket in their own style.
Sarah Jessica Parker wore her LBJ as a crown, she paired it with a skinny black pencil skirt, Daphne Guinness looked very extravagant in her Chanel jacket with feathers and diamonds and Carine Roitfeld (queen of French style) looked as a spitting image of Coco Chanel. Her portrait is on the cover of the book.
The shooting of the 113 portraits took only 6 days and the book closes with a picture of Anna Wintour shot in her jacket from behind.
