The British actress springs within the 1960s Swinging London scene where she models and appears in a few films such as The Knack and How To Get it, in 1964 and Michelangelo Antonioni's Blow -Up, in 1966. In 1968, she moves to France and meets Serge Gainsbourg on the set of Slogan. In 1969, they release the duet, 'Je t'aime...Moi non plus' he had originally written for Brigitte Bardot: the sexually explicit song provokes a scandal and, from then, the two become an emblematic and controversial couple of the 1970s. The actress appears in several French films, sharing her time between dramas such as La Piscine, in 1969 and popular comedies such as La Moutarde me Monte au Nez, in 1974. With her partner as a mentor, Jane Birkin also becomes a popular singer and remains, today, an ambassador of Gainsbourg's songs. A fashion muse with her simple and feminine outfits in the 1970s, Jane Birkin has also given her name to an iconic Hermès handbag that perfectly suits the woman who once declared: 'My mother was right: when you've got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust.' Today, Birkin can't be dissociated from her famous and iconic daughters, who she forms a tribe with: late Kate Barry, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon.
