Karl Lagerfeld: The Little Black Jacket
Chanel's Classic Revisited
Contributions by Carine Roitfeld.
This is the updated edition of Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld's reinterpretation of Chanel's iconic little black jacket, expanded with 21 new photographs. This award-winning book contains Lagerfeld's photographs of celebrities wearing the modern adaptable jacket with individual flair-sometimes classic, sometimes irreverent, but always Chanel-with each of the protagonists styled by Carine Roitfeld. A range of accomplished actors, musicians, designers, models, writers and directors receives the little black jacket treatment, including Claudia Schiffer, Uma Thurman, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono and Sarah Jessica Parker. The project-which has been accompanied by a worldwide travelling exhibition-underlines the astounding versatility of Chanel's vision in Lagerfeld's hands and ensures this jacket's future as a timeless classic.
