Chanel – The Little Black Jacket

Chanel - The Little Black Jacket ExhibitionWell, we all know the importance of owning and working that little black jacket or little black dress, regardless of whether or not it’s actually a Chanel. This was certainly the case when it came to Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket exhibition at Saatchi Gallery here in London. The exhibit acts as a sort of shrine to the iconic jacket but also to the iconic names that bear the garment in the photographs snapped by none other than Mr. Karl Lagerfeld himself.

The large collection of portrait posters created more of a hall of fame with celebrities, socialites and style icons acting as the focal point as opposed to the actual jacket itself. To be honest, I was a bit let down by the whole presentation as I simply have higher expectations when it comes to a large luxury brand such as Chanel. If this is their attempt at fashion as art, I’m going to need a bit more convincing!
