Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition arrives at the Saatchi Gallery in London today having toured New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

The exhibit curated by Karl Lagerfeld and former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, is based on the book of the same name and features over 100 images shot by Karl himself of models, actresses and friends of the label.

Chanel have said the exhibit and book are to show “the versatility and timelessness of the iconic Chanel jacket through Karl Lagerfeld’s photographs.”

The exhibition runs until 28th October 2012.
