The Little Black Jacket

What originally began as a men's jacket has transcended boundaries and trends, becoming a symbol of feminine elegance: Chanel's LBJ. In conjunction with the release of their book The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, fashion's most inimitable duo have curated a photography exhibition around the piece, coming to the Saatchi Gallery after stints in Tokyo, New York and Hong Kong. 113 friends of the fashion house – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Stella Tenant and Georgia May Jagger – have all been snapped with the iconic jacket. I have to say the website is really superb, I particularly love the 'making of the jacket' video with suitably stylish strings as a musical accompaniment.  Unfortunately, I don't own one yet - but I'm open to gifts/ donations.
