WINTOUR&GUINNESS FASHION: THE LITTLE BLACK JACKET FROM CHANEL / KARL LARGERFIELD


Legendary Chanel designer turned photographer, Karl Lagerfeld with help of Carine Roitfeld’s styling, has just launched ‘The Little Black Jacket’ project – a classic look at celebrities wearing the legendary black Chanel jacket. The book features over 113 photos from the likes of Kanye West, Theophilus London, Anna Wintour, Riccardo Tisci and more.

The book acts as Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’s reinterpretation of Chanel’s iconic little black jacket with Lagerfeld redesigning the jacket, transforming it into a modern, adaptable garment to be worn by both sexes regardless of age. The Little Black Jacket contains Lagerfeld’s photographs of celebrities wearing the jacket with individual flair – sometimes classic, sometimes irreverent, but always Chanel – and each styled by Carine Roitfeld. A range of accomplished actors, musicians, designers, models, writers and directors gets the little black jacket treatment, including Claudia Schiffer, Uma Thurman, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono and Sarah Jessica Parker. This book shows the astounding versatility of Chanel’s vision in Lagerfeld’s hands, and ensures the little black jacket’s future as a timeless classic. A great book (essential for any fashionable coffee table).
