Karl Lagerfeld - Karl Lagerfeld Plans Chanel Exhibition

Karl Lagerfeld is planning an exhibition on Chanel's tweed jackets.

The designer will launch the show - which is set to run for seven weeks - in Tokyo, Japan in March in order to "reaffirm the brand's commitment to Japan and re-boost its image in a vital market", according to Chanel's president of fashion Bruno Pavlovsky,

Bruno added to WWD that the exhibition will comprise around 100 photos from the forthcoming book 'The Little Black Jacket,' by Karl and stylist Carine Roitfeld, depicting celebrities and other personalities in Chanel jackets.

During his time in Japan, Karl will also launch the winter couture show and open a pop-up shop.

The focus on the Japanese market is just one of the many projects Karl has lined up for 2012, this month he is to launch a 100-piece women's line - which will retail from $95 to $450 - on net-a-porter from January 25 with sales on karllagerfeld.com to come on February 28.

Karl said of the new range: "It's my today's taste and style and a reflection of how I think a great number of people would like to be dressed now."

Although the collection is defined as "ageless," it is mainly targeted at women in their late teens and early 20s with its preponderance of denim and leather.

Natalie Massenet, founder and executive chairman of The Net-a-Porter Group, added to WWD: "We believe in this collection based on Karl's talent, his global appeal, and the product itself. It's a very strong, well-edited collection with a great mix of street attitude and timeless chic. It also is an entire wardrobe that mixes and matches well with itself," she said. "While it has great contemporary price points, it has enough edge to resonate with a sophisticated fashion consumer who is looking for great new items at any budget."
