Low rise jeans with insets on the side and frayed hems, jeans/t-shirt uniform!
Remember this sexy husky “je t’aime, moi non plus…..”? I still listen to this tune every once in a while during my flashback radio moments, and I remember my mom humming this tune in French with a German accent LOL!
Anyway, besides this music, what makes me think about Jane Birkin, is her incredible vintage-modern fashion sense. She knew back then what we would be wanting to wear today.
Her ability to elegantly wear denim for any and every situation, the reason she made a lowly wicker basket her bag of choice all year long. We may never know why, but honestly it’s not worth questioning at this point because it was so seriously chic.

She is the consummate in contrasts, an icon of French style despite the fact she was born in England. The inspiration for the penultimate It bag by Hermès after all those years of basket carrying.
It was her 70th birthday this past week. So in honor of celebrating all things Birkin, we bring you some iconic fashion moments when she swept us off our feet and the stylish lessons we will carry with us now and forevermore.
