Black Jackets. Little ones. By Chanel. In Dubai.

Chanel. You already know.

Just one of those iconic brands that impossibly but very possibly never ceases to fail. It is an ultimate love affair, that never cheats. A most inspiring friend, never disappointing.

Every being associated, regardless of ‘faux’ level, becomes somehow completely uplifted. Just like that. And with every counterfeit maker so closely following Chanel’s every move, nothing, simply nothing, can take away from this Parisian ornament of historic, contemporary, forward and yet classic artistry.

Chanel’s shows, as part of all these ‘weeks’, have always beenhighlights in one’s fashion related life. There’s a genuine consideration in that word, ’show’ - which of course holds significant weight in display of attire. Example favorites have always been at Miami’s Raleigh hotel. Something about the aqua catwalk… always a joy to mine eye. Back to the original topic at hand, Dubai, and the Emirati arrival of Chanel’s touring exhibition celebrating the ”Little Black Jacket”.

Rita Ora performed too. And while one’s never thought to associate her , or her brand, with one like Chanel’s… again… somehow, being Chanel, it worked. Well.

The LBJ exhibition remains on display at The Venue in downtown Dubai until 11 May 2013. Enjoy.
