We are inaugurating our section dedicated to literature. Every week we’ll discuss books and authors. Best sellers or books that never go out of date, classic and contemporary books. We will present novels, books of poetry, essays, photographs, illustrations… And, every so often, we’ll include a book dedicated exclusively to fashion.

We can safely assure you that our authors will always have (a lot of) style. Without doubt a literary style and, sometimes, it will be their own look that obliges us to talk about their work. On the other hand, however, it will be the protagonists themselves who catch our attention.

 

And this is today’s case. We have just moved home and hidden amongst the boxes was a piece of treasure which we love and hadn’t seen around for ages.

We are great fans of a couple who left their mark on an era, who represented the freedom and provocation that was so characteristic of the 60s. A couple who led a style which even today sets a trend.

We’re referring to Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, the protagonists of Jane & Serge, a book which includes the photographs Birkin’s brother took of the couple during a few years of their lives. The book also includes a text written by Jane herself, Andrew Birkin’s view of them, the family’s childhood photos and other gift items.

The book opens a window onto the private lives of these two characters whose magnetism, contrasts and spontaneity fascinate us.  A couple who fell in love by arguing (they say that Birkin used to say awful things about her co-star… who she couldn’t stop talking about…)  but who ended up making a lot more noise than their ‘Je t’aime… moi non plus’.
