The Little Black Jacket

The little black jacket has been a quintessential part of Chanel ever since Coco Chanel designed one herself in the 50s.

Karl Lagerfeld has reinvented the jacket time and time again which explains why he is publishing a book (out this fall) about the jacket. The book is set to be full of beautiful photographs of models and celebrities wearing different black Chanel jackets. You can bet this book will be added to my coffee table book collection!

Take a peak at this video which shows the step-by-step process of creating the iconic black jacket. Lagerfeld calls the jacket "one of the symbols that defines the style of Chanel." This depiction of the jacket's creation, from a sketch by Lagerfeld to the exquisite yet expensive final product, shows you just how special the little black jacket is.
