Chanel's LBJ No.1

The Little Black Jacket


Karl Lagerfeld & Carine Roitfeld

Iconic personalities + background story + classy photo shoot + publish book 
A priceless/timeless piece of clothing?

I understand that they're trying to present it as the 'denim jeans' of jackets - versatile.

But, it sounds a lot like taking the denim jeans which was actually the man's staple clothing then redesigned to better suit the woman's frame then sold back to the man again. Except, Coco Chanel wore a very similar one...

Maybe I'm jumping the gun, as I've barely had enough information on this project. Personally, I wouldn't wear one though. Too feminine for my taste. But, it makes an ideal piece of clothing for the woman in my opinion. Business or pleasure.

Criticism aside, this collaboration project to revisit a classic Chanel piece by Karl Lagerfeld & Carine Roitfeld is absolutely classy/stunning with a star studded cast of Anna Wintour, Kanye West, Sarah Jessica Parker, Claudia Shiffer, Yoko Ono, etc. And those are just a few to name. Soon to be compiled into a book and released soon.
