A fine first edition of Karl Lagerfeld's award-winning tribute to Chanel’s little black jacket with over 100 photographs. This rather beautiful first edition from 2012 features the original collector's slipcase. A brilliant addition to any collection and made all the more poignant with Lagerfeld's passing in 2019. Not only was Lagerfeld a brilliant designer but he was also a prolific book collector.

Created during the fifties by Mademoiselle Chanel, the jacket has been endlessly reinvented by Karl Lagerfeld in each of his collections since 1983, for the most part, in the fundamental Chanel colour: black.

In the book, you'll find the jacket slipped on by the French singer, Vanessa Paradis; transformed into a headdress for the American actress, Sarah Jessica Parker; or adapted to Alice Dellal’s neo-punk look, and much, much more.

First Edition. Pictorial wrappers, black edges, lettered slipcase. Minor wear to the covers. A near fine example.
