The Little Black Jacket

Chanel's Little Black Jacket exhibition has finally come to London.  After showings in Tokyo, New York, Taipei and Hong Kong, the exhibition which celebrates Chanel's most iconic item opens at the Saatchi Gallery today.

The project was the brainchild of Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld, and former editor of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld.  It consists of a series of photographs, taken by Lagerfeld himself, showing models, actors, musicians and other 'friends of the house' wearing the classic jacket in their own way, celebrating its versatility and timelessness.

Admission to the exhibition is free, and it runs until 28th October.

A book "The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's Classic Revisited"  accompanies the exhibition, and you can find details here
