The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited

We are already looking forward to the next “Big Thing” of the Chanel Fashion House! The book “The little black jacket” makes a tribute to the classic and iconic garment designed by Coco.

Wearing the jacket with a unique flair, various celebrities are photographed by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by the ‘Irreverent’ Carine Roitfeld. Claudia Schiffer, Uma Thurman, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono and Sarah Jessica Parker are among the stars that ‘parade’ in the glossy pages of the book.

As for the highlight of this ‘Bible’ of fashion? This is definitely the photographs of Carine Roitfeld in which she is dressed like the “legend” of fashion Coco Chanel. Moreover, the publisher is Steidl and the book will be available in bookstores in autumn 2012. The photos were presented at Tokyo.
