The LBD is a staple in fashion. For those of you that have no clue what those three letters mean, they stand for the 'Little Black Dress,' that one timeless frock that works for any occasion. Enter the LBJ or the 'Little Black Jacket.' The latest article of clothing garnering attention thanks to an iconic French brand (and the designer that helms said brand) and one iconic stylist. That brand would be Chanel designed by Karl Lagerfeld and the stylist, also once the Editor-In-Chief of French Vogue, would be Carine Roitfeld.
Originally conceived by Coco Chanel and now modernized by Mr. Lagerfeld, the designer partnered with Carine to compile a book of photographs of celebrities, models, musicians, royalty, tastemakers and trendsetters donning the jacket in stylish variations. From sophisticated to punk to free as the wind, there is an image for every style. He even convinced some species of the opposite sex (i.e. Kanye West) to rock the jacket.
