Jane Birkin in a shoot for Saint Laurent
Jane Birkin – singer, actress, a sex symbol of the 1960s and the Muse of Serge Gainsbourg – written in the history of fashion, along with such iconic elements of its style, like Bootcut jeans, semi-transparent dress and wicker basket instead of a bag. Fifty years after the heyday of his fame she has not lost any charm, no sparkle in the eyes, no careless negligence in appearance.
Despite this, today the rebellious 1960s quite selectively accept invitations to fashion shows and photo shoots and in advertising campaigns and he appeared only twice – in 1978 posed for Lee Cooper, and in the 2015th – for La Redoute with her daughter Lou Doillon.
Apparently, Jane got a taste: a year after the campaign La Redoute to Edie Slimane managed to persuade her to become the heroine of the shooting of Saint Laurent. In Twitter-account of the French brand appeared two black-and-white shot of Jane from the new campaign. As far as we know, it is not tied to the next fashion season, and continues a series of shots for Saint Laurent with the iconic musicians that inspire Hedi Slimane (such as Marianne Faithful, Courtney Love, Joni Mitchell others).
On new photos Birkin poses in a man’s tuxedo and a white top, showing that today, as a century ago, it still does not find any hint of vulgarity – bright makeup and flashy jewelry continues to be replaced long tousled bangs and smile.
