“The Chanel jacket has become the symbol of a certain elegance, feminine, with an air of nonchalance, classic and timeless, that is of all times,” said Karl Lagerfeld in Paris after the photo shoot of the book The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld.*
Last week, Karl Lagerfeld, a German fashion designer, artist, and photographer, most noted for being the head designer and creative director of CHANEL, globally launched The Little Black Jacket. This campaign was taken to Tokyo, Japan and virtually in an online exhibit.
This project gathered more than 100 celebrities. Below you can see Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue; musical artists, like Kanye West and Theophilus London; designers,like Alexander Wang; iconic figures, like Yoko Ono and Georgia Jagger; models, like Karolina Kurkova and Claudia Schiffer; and American actors and actresses, such as Uma Thurman, Dakota and Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alexa Chung, and Joshua Jackson. Others photographed (many not pictured), included people like the creative director of Givenchy, international designers, violinists, dancers, artists, actors, actresses and models.
Originally, I just wanted to include a few photos, but as I was browsing the online exhibition, I couldn't help but consume myself in the countless photos of iconic people throughout the world. These pictures posted on this blog didn't do the website justice-- look for yourself at CHANEL'S LITTLE BLACK JACKET ONLINE EXHIBIT for more photos.
