The Little Black Jacket


Paying tribute to Chanel's iconic little black jacket, Karl Lagerfeld in collaboration with Carine Roitfeld, created the world-traveling exhibition, The Little Black Jacket, featuring 100 celebrities each photographed in custom-made Chanel jackets  redesigned by Karl himself.

Shot by Lagerfeld and styled by Roitfeld, each photograph is individual, some modern, some classic, but always Chanel. The 100 include a range of "friends". Actors, musicians, designers, models, writers and directors from around the globe, Claudia Schiffer, Uma Thurman, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono and Sarah Jessica Parker to name a few. I was lucky to have the chance to visit the exhibit in Soho before it moved on to other parts of the world including Australia.

Here are some of my photographs from the NYC exhibition.

The book The Little Black Jacket will be out in the fall.
