The Little Black Jacket

the little black jacket chanel exhibition

True to our usual form, we ran in into The Little Black Jacket Chanel Exhibition just one hour before closing time on a the final day. Karl Lagerfeld is a surprisingly accomplished photographer and Carine’s styling is beyond exceptional. But as a long time fan of Chanel fashion house I expected more than just heavily photoshopped IT girls and Karl’s BFFs being photographed in the same jacket striking various ‘the pose’. The rebelliousness of Coco Chanel was missing in that hall. That said, the photos of Yoko Ono were fantastic.

Photography wasn’t permitted inside the exhibition. So to create these collages I borrowed a few TLBJ photos from Mr Google. Photos of me – thanks to Joseph Pole and photo of the Harbour bridge is by me.

Joseph and I still enjoyed the exhibition and Anastasia had a great time running around in the gigantic dark hall. What a nice Sunday family adventure. But was The Little Black Jacket exhibition inspirational? That’s the question.

    I had read a review on the above exhibition – have yet to see it though. Adore the leading photograph here. How beautifully captured! The little black jacket – not quite the same as the little black dress, but nice;-)
