In 2012 the fashion designer and photographer Karl Lagerfeld and former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld celebrated the iconic black tweed jacket that Coco Chanel launched in 1954 with the book “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited”. A collection of black and withe pictures of models, artist and influential personalities that revisited the jacket. Here are some.

I’ll confess you. I’m not a big shopping addicted and I do not swim into an ocean of clothes (or money) and I often wear a “uniform” for every season. I profess the minimal wardrobe religion instead and that’s why I’m making these Classics posts. Now the dark tweed jacket is the king of the Classics. Not only because of its versatility or elegance. I think it’s also a simbol of the passage from a girl to a woman. It represents, the independence, the self confidence, the femininity.

Last reason why we all need a little black jacket? It screams “CHIC” with all of its fibers.
