When Karl & Carine team up
Geschreven door Chanel's Little Black Jacket
n a previous post I mentioned dream team Lagerfeld & Roitfeld and the fact they had teamed up to honor me in a pretty amazing way.
I’ve been around for a while you know and I’ve been reinvented over an over again in each and every collection designed by Karl ever since he entered the premises of Chanel back in 1983.
I was brought up to be a timeless fashionable garment, desirable in many ways and a perfect acquisition in the wardrobe of every woman on this planet. Go ahead and call me a luxury staple, I will most certainly agree with you on that one, but once more emphasize that I’m totally worth your investment as I have proven to look just perfect on both a fancy pancy attire as on regular pair of jeans and white t-shirt.
I’m every girl’s dream and aspiration and for this reason and the above Karl Lagerfeld launched the book "The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld”. Besides having me as the star of this exceptional book, Chanel also decided to grant me a travelling expo.
So Carine Roitfeld styled an entire league of fabulous personalities with practically only moi… The Little Black Jacket. Each time a reinterpretation and thus transformed to the style of the person I was embracing. The pictures (over a hundred photographs), were then taken by Mr. Karl himself. The result is fabulous and I’m so very proud of the entire outcome. Above all, I’m also proud Karl chose me and not The LBD as I have felt a bit neglected in the past… ohh, guess a little vanity every once a while is harmless, no?
I started touring the world in March, my debut expo was in Tokyo. I visited Taipei, Hong Kong, Sidney and New York. In October I had a delightful stay at the Saatchi Gallery in London and then moved on to Moscow to hang around with the likes of Miroslava Duma. I’ll be hitting Paris this Thursday and you’ll be able to contemplate the great job of Karl & Carine for about 2 weeks. You guys are all welcome to come and visit me in one of the most amazing spaces available in Paris: The Grand Palais, home to Chanel’s fashion shows and one of the most iconic and beautiful buildings ever built.
Hope to see you and in the meantime i hereby present you to yet another vestimentary capriole of lady Kirilove...
