In an interview with Gotham Magazine, Lagerfeld said that "every designer dreams of designing the Chanel jacket. It's up there with jeans or the T-shirt; it's gender-neutral. That is to say, it can be womenswear or menswear." He went on to say that the "eternal can only last if it stays up-to-date [and for] this reason, the jacket is eternal." The book and exhibit contain 113 images of celebrities wearing the black tweed jacket in different ways. The book will run for $98, upon release.
