The Little Black Jacket

How does personality transform fashion? I’ve always been fascinated by the indefinable ways that the same piece of clothing just looks different on everyone. The slope of a shoulder, the way that fabric drapes and clings in different places;  even the attitude of the person wearing it can completely change the way something looks, like an unconscious and purely physical interpretation of thread and cloth.

The Little Black jacket features a simple black tweed jacket worn over 100 different ways on over 100 distinctly different personalities. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself, and styled by Carine Roitfeld, The Little Black Jacket has his favorite muses wearing the label’s iconic jacket.

Rather than a book-long ad campaign for Chanel, it seems to be more of a study on the transformative power of personality on fashion.

These Die In The Jungle tights from Les Queues de Sardines have all kinds of crazy plants, animals and tribal designs. I think they would make me feel like a tree frog!
I feel like dressing gets much easier in the fall. Throw on some tights and a scarf with any basic dress (black!) and people instantly think you’re “put together.” Add boots and earrings (this may add another 30 seconds to your five-minute dressing time) and you are a bona-fide fashion plate.
What’s your fall fashion formula?

This reminds me of how, growing up, my sister and I would dress up and then have no idea what to do with ourselves, so we’d walk to the drugstore in our small town with similar looks on our faces, against an eerily similar backdrop of plain streets and drab houses. I’m sure we imagined that it was all being documented by a photographer like Lachlan Bailey…
