Monday Inspo: Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin2

Thank you Jane Birkin, for providing me with infinite outfit ideas and the confidence to dress like a boy but act like a girl.” -Alexa Chung-

“In 1981, Hermès chief executive Jean-Louis Dumas was seated next to Birkin on a flight from Paris to London. Birkin had just placed her straw bag in the overhead compartment of her seat, but the contents fell to the floor, leaving her to scramble to replace the contents. Birkin explained to Dumas that it had been difficult to find a leather weekend bag she liked. In 1984, he created a black supple leather bag for her: the Birkin bag, based on an 1982 design.” (wiki)

She is the woman responsible for the Birkin bag as we know it. Ex girlfiend of singer Serge Gainsbourg. The woman singing “Je t’aime… moi non plus” with Serge Gainsbourg. Has received the titles of: Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) and has also been awarded the French Ordre National du Mérite. It girl, fashion icon, humanitarian, actress, singer, mother and my Monday inspiration!
