Chanel: The Little Black Jacket exhibition in London

16/10/2012

Chanel: the little black jacket exhibition | London
“There are clothes which keep rejuvenating themselves instead of getting worn out.”
Roberto Juarroz

Happy to report – being there, got a poster.

On a serious note, I have been really looking forward to the Little black jacket exhibition and as soon as it was opened jumped on a train to London.

It was truly special to see moody dim silent rooms filled with gorgeous images of fashion and music royalty dressed in Chanel, styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld who made one the early 20s century classic piece look modern and incredibly versatile. I snapped some of my favourites with an iphone – I wasn’t at all prepared to be allowed to photograph, so the proper camera was left behind, a mistake that I will never ever make again.

Luckily, the style of the photography somewhat compensated the quality of the iphone images, so here are a few to share.

If you are in London, do visit Saatchi gallery. The entry is free and you also get a poster to keep as a memory. The exhibition is open until 28th October.
