Format: Hardcover
I went to see the London Saatchi show LBJ by Karl, where the book was also available and it is a fabulous yet simple concept. Karl's photography is often quite simple, this is 100 or over models, celebrities, french cinema stars etc wearing in their own approach (or Carine Roitfield's more likely) the LBJ by Chanel.

One will obviously have some favourites depending on the celebrity etc. Personally I loved these ones best: DAPHNE G, VANESSA P, CHARLOTTE G& JANE BIRKIN, CHARLOTTE C, spooky twins with long hair, LAETITIA, STELLA, LINDA, CLAUDIA, SJP, UMA, AYMELINE, ROMAIN, Chanel, INES, MAY JAGGER and more...A few males also feature wearing it, it works!!!
The book comes in a beautiful case, well worth the amazon price.
This is a great concept and to me far superior to Chanel latest F/W 2012 CAMPAIGN ironically. Maybe Karl spent a little too much time doing this show as opposed to finding his CHANEL campaign inspiration....His muses are all in the show, but no trace of Kate MOSS...very strange indeed....

I have bought this book for a Christmas present to one of my family. I'm sure she will appreciate the quality of the design and the people modeling the jacket.

HEAVEN - my daughter loves this - great to own having been to the exhibition and not being able to get near enough to the plaques to read them.

A classic piece of Chanel - but would have liked a little more background story included. Having said that really wonderfully evocative pics.
