La petite veste noire – the little black Jacket
Hey all, my name is Victoria…I’m French and I’m in love with fashion and trends but especially the French fashion. I studied art at school and I have always been an observer of women styles. I am a traveller of Europe and at the moment I live in the South of Spain. However, no matter where I go I will never lose my French roots. I am very much aware of what’s happening in the fashion industry simply because…that’s my drug!
We all have different opinions and styles but today I’ll share mine with you:) I adore the simplicity and the phrase “less is more” describes my vision of a perfect outfit. To me, a nice pair of tight jeans, a cotton T-shirt with some graphic pattern on it with a black blazer and leather ballerinas makes it all. The must for a successful look is a little black jacket… yes…we all have one in our closet, no matter how old we are I’m sure 90% of all women owns it one!
This takes me to the original, famous and fabulous; Chanel: “La petite veste noire” (The little black jacket”). Chanel is one of my favorite fashion designers. As a French woman I’m really proud of the brand; the story behind it, its prestige and reputation around the world.
The Chanel little black jacket is such a myth that Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld made a whole exhibition about it. That’s what amazes me about Chanel. It is so traditional but at the same time so up-to-date. Lagerfeld and Roitfeld got it all and this photography exhibition proves it.
Lagerfeld demonstrates his own interpretation of a classic and traditional item. He worked with celebrities from different professions; fashion designers, actors etc. What they all have in common are strong personality and unique style. He succeeded to mix this diversity of characters and created a perfect harmony that corresponds to the image of Chanel.
If you have a chance to see the exhibitions do it!! Otherwise I advise you to watch the teaser here (It is so French, J’adore!):
I really enjoyed sharing this news with you, I’ll be posting every week so if you like French Fashion as much as I do come and read me!:)
