Exhibition | The Little Black Jacket by CHANEL


"The Little Black Jacket" - CHANEL AND JAPAN Exhibition Opening

"The Chanel jacket has become the symbol of a certain elegance, feminine, with an air of nonchalance, classic and timeless, that its of all times," said Karl Lagerfeld in Paris after the photo shoot of the book The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld.

The shoot took place in Cannes, in the south of France, in New York and ended in Paris at the studio 7L. Through over a hundred photographs, Karl Lagerfeld pays tribute to Chanel's little black jacket. For this project the designer gathered more than a hundred celebrities. Actors, artists, singers, rock stars ... Sarah Jessica Parker, Georgia May Jagger, Alice Dellal, Maiwenn, Laetitia Casta, Virginie Ledoyen or Akuol of Mabior, all wore the little black jacket their own way.

For the occasion of "The Little Black Jacket" exhibition opening in Tokyo, the CHANEL Spring/Summer 2012 Haute Couture show replica was held at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, March 22nd 2012.




For his Spring-Summer 2012 Haute Couture collection, Karl Lagerfeld paraded no less than 154 shades of blue across the lofty heights of the runway. “From the faintest pearl blue to the darkest midnight shade, this immense color range spans from crimson to hints of green. Actually, the color chart for blue is incredible,” explained Karl Lagerfeld.

Organza, tweed, tulle and muslin were dyed in the most precise nuances, every fabric shimmering in its own shade of blue: sapphire, ultramarine, indigo, and blue woad… The extent of the seemingly endless palette matched only by the stunning array of techniques and materials, some hand-painted or sprayed to produce the desired shading. Through a porthole or silk gauze, all transparencies were swathed in blue. The blue-hued glint of glass mosaic buttons, expertly crafted by Desrues, attests to pigment dosed to perfection.
