Style Icons: Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg

The beautiful British actress Jane Birkin and the jolie laide French singer Serge Gainsbourg were the chicest pairing of the 1970s, and are even more iconic together than apart.  Birkin was known for her long straight hair and her signature basket handbag, until Hermès created a bag just for her - still one of their all time best-sellers.  The couple both had a louche style that was classically Parisian, while still modern and unfussy.  Sadly their romance did not last, but they remain inspiring.
