CHANEL “The Little Black Jacket” Teaser Videos 2 & 3

Chanel has released more teaser videos for “The Little Black Jacket” exhibition – a digital exhibition showcasing 113 pictures of celebrities and personalities taken by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld. I posted the first one last week but I’ll post below again in case you missed it. There are six teasers total so I’ll post the next three as soon as they release. The more I see of this exhibit online, the more I’m dying to see it! Enjoy!

Don’t forget to visit The Little Black Jacket microsite.

View Chanel’s “The Little Black Jacket” Exhibit Online!

chanel the little black jacket exhibit online
For those of us who were not fancy enough to be invited to the opening of Chanel’s “The Little Black Jacket” exhibit or don’t live in Japan (or won’t be visiting any time soon), we can still see the stunning work of Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. All of the photos from The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld are on view on a new Chanel microsite devoted to the exhibit. The site is a bit interactive as hints of photos rotate you click on one to see the full photo.  It will take some time to see all of the photos – I kind of wish there was a way to just scroll through them all but that’s just the rushed person in me who has no time for everything.  By displaying the photos the way they did, I think Chanel intends for you  to peruse and discover as you would in a real gallery.  Enjoy!

Chanel: The Little Black Jacket Photo Shoot with Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld

“The CHANEL jacket symbolises a timelessly fashionable form of nonchalant feminine elegance: it belongs to every era” – Karl Lagerfeld.

Chanel sent a video of a behind-the scenes look at the making of the The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic jacket revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. Watching this video is like watching the dream team of fashion at work with Peter Philips doing makeup, Carine Roitfeld styling and Karl Lagerfeld photographing. I’ve always wanted a Chanel Little Black Jacket and now I want one even more!

The images for this latest project were shot in Cannes, in the South of France, and then in New York, before finishing up in Paris in Karl Lagerfeld’s studio. Over a hundred models and celebrities have been captured by the designer’s lens. Actors, artists, singers, rock stars – the book’s impressive line-up encompasses all aspects of contemporary culture today including Georgia May Jagger, Carine Roitfeld, Sarah Jessica Parker, Virginie Ledoyen, Akuol de Mabior, Virginie Viard – and they all wear CHANEL’s uniquely timeless and versatile little black jacket in their own special way.

The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, will be available in bookstores beginning Autumn 2012.

CHANEL: Secrets of The Little Black Jacket

Chanel’s little black jacket is in the spotlight at the moment. Back in November, I posted preview images from a book about the Chanel Little Black Jacket worn by many famous personalities including Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Charlotte Casiraghi, Saskia De Brauw and Daphne Groeneveld. In anticipation of its release, Chanel has created a video showing the making of a Chanel Little Black Jacket.

CHANEL invites you to discover the secrets of the little black jacket, at the heart of their ateliers, rue Cambon in Paris. “It is one of the symbols that defines the style of CHANEL. There are things that never go out of fashion, jeans, a white blouse, and a CHANEL jacket,” comments Karl Lagerfeld.

From the initial sketch by Karl Lagerfeld, the jacket takes shape through numerous stages – the draping, the cutting, the assembling, and the position of the label, the trimming, the buttons and the chain which calls on our savoir-faire.

A true reflection of the expertise and the creativity of CHANEL, the little jacket is produced according to the time honoured tradition of the House with the most meticulous care for the smallest detail.

Chanel Links: Thanksgiving 2011 Weekend

I took a much-needed few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving (and my birthday) but that didn’t stop Chanel or Karl Lagerfeld from making the news. Let’s play a little catch-up to see what happened in the Chanel world last week…

I’m not sure why everyone on the interweb is so surprised that Karl Lagerfeld makes a lot of money considering who he works for and the breadth of his projects – but he does, ok? WWD

As part of the project, he will create a series of collectible sketches, illustrations and columns as well as choose the stories for the newspaper and give his notoriously provocative comments on the news of the day.”  Metro
