Happy Saturday Everyone!

The Internet is abuzz with news of the Little Black Jacket Exhibition coming to the U.S. this week. The exhibit celebrates Chanel's iconic black tweed jacket, and, in a nod to the jacket's dynamism over the years, showcases 120 ways the jacket was reinterpreted and reimagined in a series of black-and-white photographs taken by Karl Lagerfeld, longtime head of Chanel's iconic fashion house. The project is the brainchild of Lagerfeld and former Vogue France editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld. And while Lagerfeld is usually one to toot his own horn, this time, he's actually got something worth tooting about.


A world-traveling exhibition featuring more than 100 striking black-and-white photographs he took of various “friends,” ranging from Sarah Jessica Parker to Kanye West to Yoko Ono, is making a one-week stop in New York beginning Friday June 8th, at the Swiss Institute downtown on Wooster Street.
The exhibition, titled “The Little Black Jacket,” is based on a Steidl book of the same name—and the same photos—scheduled for release this autumn. The title refers to Chanel’s iconic black tweed jacket and Mr. Lagerfeld, in collaboration with former longtime French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, reimagined ways (120 of them) the jacket could be worn and interpreted. A party celebrating the opening took place Wednesday night.
