A celebration of the Chanel little black jacket is currently on at the beautiful Saatchi Gallery in London. Karl Lagerfeld was at the opening of the exhibition he organised in collaboration with Carine Roitfeld. The exhibition is on until 28th October and has arrived in London after a world tour including Tokyo and New York.
The iconic jacket is an original Chanel design but is has stood the test of time and still has an irresistable charm. Shown on 113 celebrities photographed by the multi-talented Lagerfeld, the exhibition celebrates the jacket’s versatility.
