Last night saw the launch of the much anticipated Chanel 'Little Black Jacket' exhibition at The Saatchi Gallery, & of course, Melissa was invited! Charting the progress of the quintessential & original trophy jacket from it's creation in the 1950's, Karl Lagerfeld dug deep into his little black book of contacts (we're guessing it isn't that little!) & rounded up a plethora of his A-lister friends & photographed them wearing the Chanel bouclé jacket their way.
From Kanye West to Alexa Chung, Georgia Jagger to Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sarah-Jessica Parker to the high-priestess of fashion herself, Anna Wintour, Karl has documented them, not only creating the iconic pieces for the last thirty years as creative director of Chanel, but also taking the actual pictures themselves - is there no end to this man's talents?
See below for a collection of our favourite images & make sure you head to The Saatchi & check it out - this is one exhibition not to be missed!
