THE LITTLE BLACK JACKET: CHANEL'S CLASSIC REVISITED

— JASMEEN DUGAL

Chanel has focused its laser gaze on the LBJ and launched coffee table book 'The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's Classic Revisited' by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld which showcases iconic personalities from Yoko Ono and Waris Ahluwalia to Sarah Jessica Parker and Uma Thurman wearing the LBJ — sometimes traditional sometimes flippant but with equally spectacular results!

Awe-inspired as I turned page after page to gaze at the stunning imagery... I discovered Lagerfeld has taken 100+ photographs to celebrate the beauty of both men and women modelling this classic garment with individual flair and each look styled by former editor of French Vogue Carine Roitfeld. This grandiose book showcases the versatility of Chanel's vision and ensures the little black jacket's future as a time-honored versatile classic that complements jeans-and-tee and floor-length gown with equal élan. Having taken a week to leisurely absorb each photograph I must insist here that all lovers of fashion must own this book though here's a little peek until you do: Stella Tennant has accessorized her LJB with a pilot's helmet while Sofia Coppola goes bohemian with bare feet and Freja Beha poses as a Chanel-styled nun!
