BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE PHOTO SHOOTS, STUDIO 7L, PARIS:
"The CHANEL jacket symbolises a timelessly fashionable form of nonchalant feminine elegance: it belongs to every era". These were Karl Lagerfeld's words at the end of the photo shoot, for the book The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL's classic jacket revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld*, in Paris.
The images for this latest project were shot in Cannes, in the South of France, and then in New York, before finishing up in Paris in Karl Lagerfeld's studio. Over a hundred models and celebrities have been captured by the designer's lens. Actors, artists, singers, rock stars -- the book's impressive line-up encompasses all aspects of contemporary culture today.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Georgia May Jagger, Alice Dellal, Ma´wenn, Laetitia Casta, Virginie Ledoyen and Akuol de Mabior, all wear CHANEL's uniquely timeless and versatile little black jacket in their own special way.
* The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, Steidl, G÷ttingen, 2012, 232 pages. Available in bookstores from autumn 2012.
