Last night at the G-bldg in Aoyama, CHANEL officially opened the exhibition The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, a celebration of the iconic little black jacket, with Karl Lagerfeld in attendance.
The exhibition set over two floors includes 113 prints depicting celebrities and other personalities in the CHANEL jacket, taken by Karl Lagerfeld and selected from the forthcoming book The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld.
Joining Karl Lagerfeld, guests included actress Kiko Mizuhara, architect Junya Ishigami, models Saskia de Brauw, Stella Tenant, Saki Asamiya and Rina Ota, artists Yi Zhou, Ellie and Asami Kiyokama, jewellery designer Harumi De Rola, CHANEL ambassadors Vanessa Paradis, Alice Dellal, Zhou Xun and Gaspard Ulliel and actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Clémence Poésy and Astrid Bergès- Frisbey.
I REALLY hope this exhibition travels to the U.S. – I would love to see it! If the exhibition doesn’t travel we’ll always have the book though we’ll have to wait until this fall. The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, will be available in bookstores beginning autumn 2012.
The Exhibition runs from March 24th to April 15th
11AM-7PM from Monday to Friday
11AM-8PM Saturday and Sunday
