Little Black Jacket
Black is classic, sleek and oh so timeles. The little black jacket is no exception. Chanel, which is putting the spotlight on its iconic jacket as part of a traveling exhibition, has chosen a downtown location for the New York leg of “The Little Black Jacket” tour. This phenomenal collection of photographs, by Karl Lagerfeld, is set to run from June 8 to 15 at 18 Wooster Street. Lagerfeld took 113 photographs of pop icons wearing the iconic garment, including model Joan Smalls to Yoko Ono and Sarah Jessica Parker, to name a few.
In addition to the exhibit, Chanel is also planning window displays at its New York boutiques of jackets from its Paris-Bombay métiers d’art collection. A Steidl tome of the photos, styled by Carine Roitfeld, is due out in the fall.
