the making of a classic chanel jacket

The Chanel jacket has been a classic ever since Coco Chanel created it in the 1950s.  Current designer for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld is publishing a series of photographs of models and celebrities wearing black Chanel jackets in a book due out this fall, as well as staging an exhibit in Tokyo that opens next Saturday.

To further commemorate the iconic black jacket, which Lagerfeld calls “one of the symbols that defines the style of Chanel,” Chanel made a little video that follows each step of its creation, from a sketch by Lagerfeld to the beautiful and expensive finished product.
