In October, the Saatchi Gallery will play host to the Little Black Jacket photographic exhibition by Chanel. Previously on display in Tokyo, New York, Taipei and Hong Kong, the exhibition features 113 photographs starring “friends of the fashion house,” which includes singer Lily Allen, model Stella Tennant, and actress Elle Fanning. The exhibition is based on a book of the same title written by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld.
According to Vogue UK, “to coincide with the exhibition, Chanel’s Bond Street, Sloane Street and Brompton Cross boutiques will have window displays dedicated to jackets from the most recent collections.” A statement from Chanel reads, “the 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 photographs.”
