|The classic Chanel jacket. Mama like.|
In advance of the book The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, which will be released on August 15, 2012 (my birthday!), there is a micro-exhibit on the iconic black Chanel jacket from June 8-15 in Manhattan. I’m so there. I will report back if they allow me to take photos.
There is a fun range of videos and pictures that Chanel has released which you can see if you click here. I am especially enamored of the very short video (too short!) that shows the Chanel seamstresses making one of the jackets. Check it out if you get a chance. It’s the last selection in the menu, called “The Jacket.”
