The Little Black JacketTuesday, December 11, 2012
Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is also a professional fashion photographer. He is currently holding an exhibition in Cheondam-dong, Seoul, titled, "the Little Black Jacket."
In the Museum Beyond Museum situated in one of the richest areas of Seoul, huge posters of celebrities and other famous artists are lined up, all dressed in the iconic Chanel jacket. In black, and each in their own styles and interpretations, as it were.
One of my favourites. Love it! They are handing out posters at the exhibition, but the choices are limited, though they do go round in rotations. They didn't have him when I visited on Saturday, though, drats.
The dim black and white ambiance added to the 'artistic' value of the place.
J, R and I were glad to have gone early in the morning because people kept arriving more and more.
Karl Lagerfeld is a talented man.
Photos are shown on two levels; Carine Roitfeld, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, poses as Coco Chanel, the creator of the classic little black jacket.
Karl Lagerfeld's Little Black Jacket books, stacked up, looking a little like pizza boxes, I thought, haha.
