LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 17, 2012) - Today Chanel opened the Little Black Jacket exhibition in London today at the Saatchi Gallery. It's an exciting time for fashion across the industry. It shows fashion can continue to be treated as art. In particular, the Black Jacket, Chanel's token and iconic piece, is an impressive showpiece.
The exhibition will feature 100 black and white photographs of Karl Lagerfeld's favourite muses wearing the label's iconic jacket. Both men and women will appear, from Kanye West to Vanessa Paradis.
In addition to celebrating its beauty, it also highlights the complete versatile glamour of the little black jacket.
New Look, the British high street's big trendsetters, is fully up to date and fully stocked with black ladies jackets that can become a staple and solid item for any stylish wardrobe.
Three standout black jackets are the Black Ponte PU Panel Cropped Jacket, the Black Ponte Peplum Crop Blazer and the Black Houndstooth Contrast Trim Blazer. All evoke the splendour and swagger of the Little Black Jacket's reputation and status within fashion's history.
For Chanel-like class, work the jacket with simple sophistication. A classic and crisp white shirt with skin-kissing black skinny jeans will create couture grandeur out of a sparse yet super-stylish outfit.
It is also vital to team the look with killer heels. For that couture kind of glamour, towering black boots, in suede and leather perfect the ensemble, creating precision, line and height.
It is true; no jacket is truly complete without this Work of Art. The black jacket, now a proven and iconic piece worth its own show, is a must-have piece; to dress up, down and with everything. It creates edge, class and cool, and those are things the fashion industry loves to exhibit.
