Forever Chanel

‘There are clothes which keep rejuvenating themselves instead of getting worn out’

Roberto Juarroz

As a fashion loving gal, I couldn’t not go to see the new Chanel exhibition that has been on this month at The Saatchi Gallery. Classic and timeless, this exhibition is as chic and iconic as the brand itself. Karl Lagerfeld took portraits, lots of portraits, of actors, musicians, models and fashion icons, each wearing the legendary little black Chanel jacket in a way they chose. Stunning. Mostly black and white, with a few colour images towards the end, the simplicity of this exhibit is perfect. For me, it was lacking the inclusion of a certain Kate Moss, but in a way it was kinda refreshing to see a fashion event that omitted her, just this once. Here is my selection of the shots, each of these portraits show astounding beauty.

  2. Raphael Personnaz, Actor
