Alluring victims with elegant simplicity, the likes of Alexander Wang, Riccardo Tisci, Kanye West and Olivier Theyskens have been immortalized donning the little black jacket in Karl Largerfeld’s “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited.” The bulky volume documented the little black jacket interpreted by out-of-this-world personalities, styled by Carine Roitfeld in its entirety and photographed in true Chanel fashion—black and white. Enduring and versatile, Chanel’s classic creation returns to men an element that was borrowed from them decades ago.
