The Little Black Jacket in Dubai

The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL's classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld is a photography exhibition dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld's latest book by the same name.

The exhibition has already taken place in Tokyo, New York, London, Paris, Berlin and Milan and from 27th April till 11th May 2013, it will be in Dubai, in a specially constructed space at The Venue, Downtown Dubai

The public will discover Karl Lagerfeld's original photographs that illustrate the versatility and timelessness of the iconic CHANEL jacket, seen modeled on a range of friends of the House who have each adapted the garment to reflect their own inimitable style.

In addition, new photographs featuring such notable personalities as Keira Knightley, Diane Kruger, Carla Bruni and Carole Bouquet, all of whom embody the iconic style of the House, will be unveiled. 

Herea are some of the photos from the exhibition. And check out some videos about The Little Black Jacket added after the photos.

My favourite part in this video is Gabrielle Chanel's answer to the question "What is the hardest thing about your work?" in this video.

Enabling women to move with ease, to not feel like they're in costume. Not changing attitude, or manner, depending on their dress.
