Fashion Inspiration for Spring 2018

7 May

You seem to like these aesthetic post with plenty of pretty pictures, and love them too, so here is my fashion inspiration for this spring! At the moment I really love colours red, magenta, lilac, yellow, pink, white, gingham print, flower crowns, flowers on fabric and flowers in hair, braids with bows, lilac and light blue eyeshadow, big earrings with feathers, Elle Fanning’s style, Brooke Shields’s flimsy white dresses in Pretty Baby (1978), Jane Birkin’s simple and cute style, her white t-shirts, red shoes and straw hats, white blouses with lace, Frida Kahlo’s long skirts and flowers, Romanov sisters with their white gowns and voluminous Edwardian hairstyles, Kirsten Dunst in “Virgin Suicides” with long gowns with floral pattern and wedges. So, I hope my male readers will enjoys the pictures, and the female readers to, perhaps, find some fashion inspiration as well. Enjoy!

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!
