We may have just bid a sad farewell to the Olympics, but fear not Londoners, as Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition is coming to our fine city. Hooray!
The installation is based on the book The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, and will be opening at London’s Saatchi Gallery from October 12th til the 29th.
“The special event underlines the brand’s values of creativity, modernity and excellence,” reads a statement from Chanel. “The public will discover the versatility and timelessness of the iconic Chanel jacket through Karl Lagerfeld’s photographs.”
The exhibit will feature 113 pictures of Chanel’s friends and family from the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker pictured above to Elle Fanning and Lily Allen among others. And apparently, the Chanel stores in Bond Street, Sloane Street and Brompton Cross will all feature some recent Chanel jackets in the windows to mark the occasion!
Now all we need is for the Alexander McQueen retrospective ‘Savage Beauty’ to head our way and our year will be complete!
