Work it Like Birkin

Laissez-faire. Sex kitten. Breezy Bohemian. All are phrases that have been used to describe the style of English-turned-French fashion and cultural icon, Jane Birkin. A woman who through her enviable free sprit and smoldering yet innocent beauty, has for decades inspired legions of women to add a touch of the carefree to their fashion.

Laissez-faire. Sex kitten. Breezy Bohemian. All are phrases that have been used to describe the style of English-turned-French fashion and cultural icon, Jane Birkin.

High-waisted jeans, long and delicate gold necklaces, loose fitting tops and short hemlines are key to Birkin?s inimitable look, a look which goes down in history as one of the most inspiring sartorial expressions to date. And while she may be most famous for the Hermes bag that bears her name, it?s the wicker basket she used as a handbag that caught the world?s attention. 

 

 

 

 

And what better time than the golden days of summer to explore your inner Birkin, letting your bronzed legs out from under high hemlines or allowing the delicacies of golden trinkets graze your sun-kissed d?colletage. You can even stay true to the item that made her stand out from the pack and rock a bag inspired by a wicker basket bag, all of which you can shop here on Shop Latitude. 

 

And when you?ve had your fill of free spiriting this summer, then follow Birkin?s wise words: ?If you?ve got nothing else left all you can do is get into silk underwear and read Proust.?
