On the weekend I headed to Pier 2/3 Walsh Bay to check out the Little Black Jacket exhibition - a celebration of the iconic jacket first designed by Coco Chanel herself.
The exhibition features over 100 portraits taken by Karl Lagerfeld of famous actors, fashion designers, models, and musicians all wearing the same signature little black jacket - each styled in a unique and different way by Carine Roitfeld! The particular jacket chosen for the photographs was actually from the 2009-10 cruise collection - made from luxurious black tweed and finished with beautiful silver buttons.
I loved how the jacket suited each wearer and their personality (even the guys) it just goes to show how timeless the classic Chanel jacket really is... 50 years later and it still looks modern and chic! Definitely a wardrobe investment if you have a cool $2000 or so to splash around!
The exhibition runs until the 11th of November and entry is free! If you have a chance make sure you check it out! :)
Here are a few of my favourite photos,
I also wanted to share this awesome video showing the making of a chanel jacket! It takes me back to my college days when we were learning tailoring - I wish we had of used black tweed instead of electric blue wool (although the other class had to use orange wool - we all joked that we looked like flight attendants from Jetstar and Virgin in our finished jackets!!)
I also remember reading about how Coco Chanel would sew little weights into the hem of her jackets so that they would fall perfectly - if only all jackets were made with such attention to detail <3 enjoy !
