Jane Birkin, a French Icon.

She was France's favourite "petite anglaise" - a singer, actress, muse, wife of the infamous Serge Gainsbourg, mother of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, and fashion icon with a style that transcends time and trends! Not to mention that she lent her name to the most desired luxury bag: the Birkin. Jane Birkin has inspired generations of French women with her effortless style and today her legacy is as relevant as ever.
Renowned for her bohemian flair and unapologetic individuality, Birkin became synonymous with a laid-back, yet undeniably chic aesthetic that captured the essence of the era.

What I love about her style is her penchant for effortless basics paired with statement accessories. From classic Breton stripes and simple white tees to high-waisted jeans and flowing maxi skirts, Birkin effortlessly combined comfort with sophistication, proving that less is indeed more when it comes to timeless style.

Signature look: white blouse, bootleg denim, wide belt.

In addition to her signature denims, Jane Birkin also favoured delicate scarves, oversized sunglasses, and minimal jewellery to complete her looks. With a keen eye for detail and a knack for effortless layering, Birkin mastered the art of accessorizing, elevating even the simplest of outfits with her impeccable taste.

Today, Jane Birkin's influence can be seen in the wardrobes of countless style icons, from Alexa Chung and Jeanne Damas to Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber. Her timeless approach to fashion—rooted in comfort, simplicity, and self-expression—remains as relevant as ever in an age of fast fashion and fleeting trends.
