The Little Black Jacket Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld

Last days of opening for The Little Black Jacket, a touring photographic exhibition of Karl Lagerfeld that arrived in Milan after Tokyo, New York, London, Paris and Berlin.
The wonderful location of the Rotonda della Besana hosted an exhibit highly suggestive and with minimal equipment (well kept, signed by Carine Roitfeld, former editor of Vogue Fr) to allow the right space to 113 artistic shots imprinted on the film of Karl Lagerfeld.
First woman of the exposure is the iconic Chanel Little Black Jacket, reinterpreted in an exceptional way in the gallery of images from famous faces who have posed for the famous fashion designer: models, artists, muses, designers and fashion icons worldwide.
The leitmotiv of each photograph is the jacket, but the result is a kaleidoscope of completely different styles. The genius of Karl has paid tribute to Coco Chanel that 60 years ago designed a jacket so versatile, and to use his words, "a jacket that can be worn by one and all".

You can browse in the making of the shooting of Karl in the movie that you find in the official website.

Ultimi giorni di apertura per The Little Black Jacket, la mostra fotografica itinerante di Karl Lagerfeld approdata a Milano dopo Tokyo, New York, Londra, Parigi e Berlino.
La meravigliosa location della Rotonda della Besana ospita una mostra estremamente suggestiva e dagli allestimenti minimali (curatissimi, a firma di Carine Roitfeld, ex direttore di Vogue Fr) per concedere il giusto spazio ai 113 scatti artistici impressi sulla pellicola di Karl Lagerfeld.

Prima donna assoluta dell'esposizione è l'iconica Little Black Jacket di Chanel, reinterpretata in modo eccezionale  nella galleria di immagini da volti noti che hanno posato per il celebre stilista: modelle, artiste, muse, stilisti  ed icone della moda mondiale.
Il leit motiv di ogni fotografia è la giacca, ma il risultato è un caleidoscopio di stili completamente differenti. Il genio di Karl ha reso onore a Coco Chanel che 60 anni fa aveva pensato ad una giacca così versatile, e per usare le sue parole, "a jacket that can be worn by one and all".

Potete curiosare nel making of dello shooting di Karl nel filmato che trovate nel sito ufficiale:

The exhibition is open until 20 April, so we are running out: I recommend you to go on a tour!
For those who could not go to visit it, you can make a virtual tour HERE.
