The Little Black Jacket

So I went to The Little Black Jacket (Chanel's that is) exhibition last Saturday with my friends. This was a moving exhibition, taken place in fashion cities in the world starting from Tokyo in April 2012, then moved to New York, Taipei, Hong Kong, London... And next will be Moscow, Sydney, Paris, and Berlin. I don't know if it's gonna continue to other destinations but for now, those are the list on the website. There were more than 100 (109 to be exact) public figures which photographs were taken by Lagerfeld himself.

The exhibition would end on the 28th of October from the magazines that I've read, however just now I checked again with the website it would be up until 4th of November. Don't know which one is correct but for those of you who live in London, if you haven't check it out, check it out now if it's not closed yet.

I was quite lucky because in London we can take pictures of the photographs and the admission was free because I heard in Hong Kong you need to get invitation and no cameras allowed. Anyway, here it was located in Saatchi Gallery, Sloane Square, which I think was the best gallery I've gone to so far. Gotta say, the exhibition was really good. It was simple, minimalist, but very cool. The photographs were by my uncle, Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld, and the stylist was my auntie, Mademoiselle Carine Roitfeld. It was totally worth it going to this exhibition, especially when you got a free poster of one of the photographs there (I got the Lily Donaldson's one).

Aaaannnddd here are the pictures...

I just posted the pictures of the well-known celebrities or fashion figures. However, there were more than just that. There were artists, musicians, models, a small guy and a little girl, actresses, actors that were inspiring as well. I will post them some times soon so do catch up, but obviously not all 109 photos because I only took three-quarters of them hehehe :)


P.S. Don't you realize it was the younger sisters who made an appearance instead of the "used-to-be-more-famous" older sisters? (re: Elle Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen)
