Following on from Tokyo, New York, Taipei, Hong Kong, and London Chanel's photographic exhibition dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld's latest book, 'The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld', has opened at the Central Exhibition Hall “Artplay”, Moscow. This special event underlines the brand's values of creativity, modernity and excellence.

The public can discover the versatility and timelessness of the iconic Chanel tweed jacket through Karl Lagerfeld's more than 100 photographs, modelled on a range of friends of the Fashion House. Each picture captures its subject's personality, a testament to the close relationships Lagerfeld has with the industry's biggest names.

A range of accomplished actors, musicians, designers, models, writers and directors gets the little black jacket treatment, including Natalia Vodianova, Claudia Schiffer, Uma Thurman, Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono, Sarah Jessica Parker, etc. Vanessa Paradis and Milla Jovovich have participated in the opening ceremony of “The Little Black Jacket” in Moscow.

Karl Lagerfeld was born in Hamburg. Educated in three languages, he was accepted into a French high school. However, he did not complete his secondary studies, as at the end of 1954 he won an international competition for amateurs from the International Wool Fashion Office, left school, and began working as an assistant for Pierre Balmain in 1955. Alongside his international career as a fashion designer and stylist, Lagerfeld began working as a professional photographer in 1987. In October 1993 he received the Lucky Strike Design Award from the Raymond Loewy Foundation, in 1996 the Culture Prize from the German Photographic Society, and in 2007 the Trustees Award from the International Centre of Photography in New York. In 2010 Lagerfeld established L.S.D. (Lagerfeld, Steidl, Druckerei Verlag), a publishing house for German literature and non-fiction.

“The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld” is available worldwide in bookshops. This book is Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’s reinterpretation of Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. Lagerfeld has redesigned the jacket, transforming it into a modern, adaptable garment to be worn by both sexes of all ages. The Little Black Jacket contains Lagerfeld’s photographs of celebrities wearing the jacket with individual flair – sometimes classic, sometimes irreverent. This book shows the astounding versatility of Chanel’s vision in Lagerfeld’s hands, and ensures the little black jacket’s future as a timeless classic.

The Little Black Jacket is open now until November 11. Admission is free.
