Yoko Ono photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel

“The Chanel jacket has become the symbol of a certain elegance, feminine, with an air of nonchalance, classic and timeless, that is of all times,” said Karl Lagerfeld in Paris after the photo shoot of the book The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld.

The photo shoot took place in Cannes, in the south of France, in New York and ended in Paris at the studio 7L.

For this project the designer gathered more than a hundred celebrities. Actors, artists, singers, rock stars… Yoko Ono, Sarah Jessica Parker, Georgia May Jagger, Alice Dellal, Maïwenn, Laetitia Casta, Virginie Ledoyen or Akuol of Mabior, all wore the little black jacket their own way.


Available in bookstores from Fall 2012, the book will accompany the opening of an exhibition dedicated to it, which will run from March 24th until April 15th 2012 in Tokyo.
