Time to push the coffee stained spring editions of House and Garden to one side and make room on your end tables, as this year's most eagerly awaited fashion hardback is here at last: The Little Black Jacket, Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld's reinterpretation of Chanel's iconic little black jacket.
Lagerfeld has redesigned the jacket, transforming it into a modern and adaptable garment to be worn by both sexes of all ages. The book contains over 100 of Lagerfeld's photographs of celebrities wearing the jacket with individual flair – sometimes classic, sometimes irreverent but always Chanel – and each model is styled by Carine Roitfeld.
The models include a range of accomplished actors, musicians, designers, models, writers and directors. Names include Claudia Schiffer, Uma Thurman, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono and Sarah Jessica Parker all received the 'little black jacket treatment'. The book shows the astounding versatility of Chanel's vision in Lagerfeld's hands, and ensures the little black jacket's future as a timeless classic.
