Event: Chanel’s Little Black Jacket at the Saatchi Gallery
Location: Saatchi Gallery, SW3
Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea is part of a world tour of photographs of the luxury label’s most enduring fashion staple. The exhibition shows over 100 black and white photographs by Chanel head Karl Lagerfield and fashion editor/stylist Carine Roitfeld of celebrities wearing the classic box-shaped jacket.
From Clemence Poesy and Sophia Coppola to Georgia May Jagger and Kanye West the models are all pictured wearing the jacket in their own particular style. The exhibition is open every day from 10am–6pm.
Chanel also has jackets from their latest collections featured in their window displays of their boutiques in Bond Street, Sloane Street and Brompton Cross.
Chanel’s Little Black Jacket is just one of many photography exhibitions on in London this autumn. Others include Mario Testino: British royal portraits at the National Portrait Gallery, WC2; retrospectives of city life photographers William Klein + Daido Moriyama at the Tate Modern gallery, SE1; and the Everything Was Moving exhibition of international photography from the 1960s and ’70s at the Barbican, EC2.
