Update from the blogosphere #93 – Chanel’s Little Black Jacket
Who saw Karl Lagerfeld and Victoria Beckham getting together for the cover of French Vogue? They looked amazing posing on the famed mirrored stairs of Coco Chanel, and launched this weekâ€™s hot topic, one of fashionâ€™s most iconic item, Chanelâ€™s little black jacket. With Karl Lagerfeldâ€™s exhibition in the Saatchi gallery of the famous faces wearing the coveted item, it seems all fashion lovers canâ€™t wait to go see it. And for those who already have, weâ€™ve picked a few of our faves.
Anyone who is anyone was at the Little Black Jacket exhibition launch last Thursday. Just look at the photo of Zara Martin, Laura Hayden and of course blogger, Bip Ling in Chanel. But not everyone got to go to a slap up dinner with Karl Lagerfeld himself afterwards. Oh how we envy you Bip Ling!
Ella from Cocoâ€™s Tea Party also was lucky enough for a preview in the gallery the day before itâ€™s official opening.Â With 113 portraits of the famous faces (and lack of in Anna Wintourâ€™s case) all wearing the jacket, itâ€™s giving us inspiration on how to wear this seasonâ€™s must-have item. OK, we may not be shelling out for a Chanel one but there are plenty of versions on the highstreet. Just check out Alex Loves blogspot for the hottest ones. We love the statement little black jackets. They may not have the timelessness of Chanelâ€™s version but with on-trend studs, embellishment and patterns; itâ€™s on our hit list. Check out the other styles Alex Loves has picked here.
Itâ€™s not just Bip Ling who loves Anna Wintourâ€™s portrait the most. The iconic bob meant everyone knew exactly who she was, without even having to show her face. Check out the perfect coffee table books from Mr Lagerfeld over on Miss Lucy Loves blogspot â€“ bet theyâ€™re all his signature style, black and white.
Maha and Marwa from Mush and Marzi blogspot have some amazing photos so be sure to check more out there and we borrowed their video to show Karl Lagerfeld and Sarah Jessica Parker giving brief interviews on the subject on the one and only, Little Black Jacket!
Have a great weekend and if youâ€™ll be on the hunt for a little black jacket let us know. Donâ€™t forget there are lots of styles on site so be sure to have a flick through the sales.
