"The CHANEL jacket symbolises a timelessly fashionable form of nonchalant feminine elegance: it belongs to every era". These were Karl Lagerfeld's words at the end of the photo shoot, for the book The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL's classic jacket revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld*, in Paris.
The images for this latest project were shot in Cannes, in the South of France, and then in New York, before finishing up in Paris in Karl Lagerfeld's studio. Over a hundred models and celebrities have been captured by the designer's lens. Actors, artists, singers, rock stars -- the book's impressive line-up encompasses all aspects of contemporary culture today.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Georgia May Jagger, Alice Dellal, Maïwenn, Laetitia Casta, Virginie Ledoyen and Akuol de Mabior, all wear CHANEL's uniquely timeless and versatile little black jacket in their own special way.
