Come August, and all of us will witness the launch of a stunning book – The Little Black Jacket, Chanel's Classic Revisited. Yes, the book is a spectacular tribute to the same iconic Little Black  Jacket that  Coco Chanel made famous. The book has more than 200 pages of portrait photography shot by one and only Karl Lagerfeld and edited and styled by Carine Roitfeld. 

With an amazing cast of personalities from various field of work – Anna Wintour, Tilda Swinton,  Claudia Schiffer, Freja BehaErichsen, Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, Milla Jovovich, Daphne Groeneveld, Tao Okamoto,Baptiste Giabiconi, Saskia de Brauw, Linda Evangelista, Gaspard Ulliel, Stella Tennant, Natalia Vodianova, Daphne Guinness,Mariacarla Boscono,Sarah Jessica Parker, Yoko Ono, Kanye West,Theophilus London, Kirsten Dunst – this is indeed a collector’s item for those who appreciate fashion and the quintessential Little Black Jacket. 

The Jacket’s gender neutral character (see pics) is beautifully captured by Karl without disturbing the very essence of this stunning & iconic creation. Using his skilful hands & creative vision, Karl has redesigned the jacket, converting it into a contemporary, adaptable piece of garment to be worn by both genders without any age restriction.

I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this book. How about you?
