  • jane birkin hermes serge love story

Jane and Serge started dating while recording the movie ‘Slogan’ (1969), and they became one of the most influential couples of the 70s. She was a fashion icon influenced by London, her hometown, and Paris, the city where she began her new life with the singer and songwriter.

Jane made a wicker basket her most precious asset, which then became an iconic item. This led her to design a bag with Hermes: the famous “Birkin bag” that lives up to its name.

Despite their 20 years difference of age, they both loved each other unconditionally, and even recorded a love song together by the name of “Je t’aime … moi non plus” in 1969. They broke up after 12 years of relationship and a daughter in common, becoming one of the most controversial and beautiful love stories in history.
