Yes! I had the good fortune of timing my vacation last December to Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket exhibition in Berlin and I was so excited! It was an inspiring visit, needless to say. It’s fascinating to see some many variations of one little black jacket and how it can work for everyone; male, female, androgynous.
The exhibition venue was right next to the subway station with security staff who looked like they are models dressed in Chanel. There were also staff giving out free exhibition posters. How cool is that! The space was quite dark but I managed to take a few exhibition shots. Over 100 photographic prints were on display with the little black jacket modelled by a range of friends of the Chanel House, from actors, musicians, designers, models, writers to directors. They include Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, Anna Wintour, Kirsten Dunst, Uma Thurman, Tilda Swinton, Baptiste Giabiconi, Yoko Ono and many more.
The entire exhibition is really well documented on its webite with great “Making of” behind the scenes photos such as the one of Daphne Guinness and Ken Hirai below.
The exhibition is still touring. You never know, it might travel to your city next week!
