Fashion Icons: Jane Birkin

7 Jul

Some of you really seem to enjoy my posts about 1960s fashion and fashion icons, so I decided to make another one, this time on the subject of Jane Birkin.

Jane BIRKIN

Jane Birkin is an actress and singer, prominent during the late 1960s and 1970s, who became widely known in 1969 because of a song with Serge Gainsbourg – ‘Je t’aime… moi non plus’. She is a big fashion inspiration for me mainly because her style is actually wearable; it’s simple, fresh and youthful. Nothing too glamorous or over the top. I mean, I like the style of Kate Moss very much, but it doesn’t suit my lifestyle and I don’t wear high heels, but Jane Birkin’s style is an everyday style, innocent and sexy at the same time.

As you will see from the collages, which were a great fun to make, Jane’s style has a lot of variety, from ultra mini dresses she wore in the 1960s with either boots of flats, to jeans and simple white T-shirt, to free flowing psychedelic dresses she rocked in Wonderwall (1968), to really thigh long dresses worn with a flower crown in her hair.

If you want to get in the spirit of Jane Birkin, I suggest you to watch the already mentioned film Wonderwall (1968), Blow-Up (1966), and La Piscine (1969), watch a documentary called Jane Birkin: The Mother of All Babes which is on YouTube, or listen to some of her songs such as Lolita Go Home, Ex fan des sixties, Docteur Faust, Di Doo Dah, those are my favourites, along with the infamous Je t’aime…moi non plus.

Enjoy the collages!
