Yoko Ono photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel
THE LITTLE BLACK JACKET
12 October – 4 November 2012
CHANEL’s photographic exhibition dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld’s latest book, ‘The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’, is open at the Saatchi Gallery in London in October.
Following on from Tokyo, New York, Taipei and Hong Kong, this special event underlines the brand’s values of creativity, modernity and excellence.
The public will discover the versatility and timelessness of the iconic CHANEL jacket through Karl Lagerfeld’s 113 photographs, modelled on a range of friends of the House, with each personality adapting the garment to reflect their own inimitable style.
At The Saatchi Gallery, there is an entire room dedicated to Yoko Ono, where visitors can watch Yoko’s performance in her short film, ‘The Secret of My Long Life’, filmed by Karl Lagerfeld, and enjoy the series of large format stills of Yoko across two opposite walls of the exhibition space.
The Little Black Jacket can also be seen worn as a cape on singer Lily Allen, draped around model Stella Tennant, or even transformed into a vest on model Edie Campbell.
Running simultaneously with the exhibition, window displays in CHANEL’s Bond Street, Sloane Street and Brompton Cross boutiques will present a selection of jackets from the latest collections.
‘The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld,’* will be available worldwide in bookshops this autumn.
The exhibition will be open to the public from Friday 12th October to Sunday 4th November 2012.
