BOOK JACKET: Karl Lagerfeld keeps rolling out the projects. Chanel has released details and an image from Lagerfeld’s forthcoming photo book, “The Little Black Jacket,” in which he and editor Carine Roitfeld pay tribute to the classic Chanel cardiganlike jacket by depicting it on a range of personalities. Sarah Jessica Parker transforms one into a headdress, while Vanessa Paradis and Alice Dellal sport one in their personal style. Gabrielle Chanel created her iconic jacket in the Fifties, and Lagerfeld has interpreted it in each of his collections since 1983.
