Press preview: Chanel Little Black Jacket by Karl Lagerfeld
Just sharing my favourite photos from Karl Lagerfeld’s Little Black Jacket exhibition, which opened at the Saatchi Gallery today (I went to the preview yesterday). I really didn’t have high hopes for this so I was shocked at how much I loved it. The casting is wonderful, as is Carine Roitfeld’s styling. Karl has truly managed to capture the style and personality of each of his sitters. And the gigantic prints (by Steidl) are nicely displayed, gently pinned to the wall. The exhibition is huge and you can even take away a free poster with you. So much nicer than flooding the shop with tacky merch, no?
The exhibition is on from now until 28th October and you can buy the accompanying book there too (it’s a lot cheaper than in the shops).
*SPOILER ALERT* Don’t look down if you don’t want to see (top to bottom) Ines de La Fressange, Frankie Rayder, Jane Birkin, Lauren Hutton, Linda Evangelista, Sojourner Morrell, Alexa Chung, Sofia Coppola, Sing Hye-Kyo, Kirsten Owen and Lily Donaldson…
Gorgeous Frankie Rayder in her hoodie and ragged-hem skirt
Ethereal Kirsten Owen, the only one in a little white jacket
This Lily Donaldson photo is also one of the posters – you can choose one of three to take home

I’ve just gone this today and it was really nice. A bit of surprise was how many of visitors taking pictures of the exhibition by mobile…

Ah Picolin, they were Instagramming I guess, no? It’s the world we live in now!
