Hey hi hello yo wassup! It’s your favorite draped in all his splendor. P, ofcourse. If not me then who?! Let me stop and get to the point.

Say you’ll never let me go. Hush, see what you made me do–I want everything in each portrait in my size (including the portraits themselves at the same damn time). Give me what I want! Chanel, under the direction of Lagerfeld & former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld, curated “The Little Black Jacket” exhibition with more than 100 black-and-white photographs of influential figures including Kanye West, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mother Wintour, Yoko Ono and etc wearing Chanel jackets that were made specifically for the photos. The photos will be made into a book to be released later this summer. And catch this before it crumbles, each patron exits the exhibit with complimentary poster size portraits. That’s right I can’t control it–catch my drift. Got me lookin so Crazy in Love with this Little Black Jacket! And we haven’t even touched the topic of the book.
