Family Affair: The Gainsbourgs. et al.

Hey All,

Happy Friday and happy loooong bank holiday weekend!

So today sees the ‘general’ release of Gainsbourg. A movie about the French singer-slash-songwriter-slash-actor-slash-director, Serge Gainsbourg.

The movie focuses on his life including his song writing (see Je t’aime among others). It also looks at his personal life; when famously, after a couple of previous marriages, and a brief affair with Brigitte Bardot, Serge Gainsbourg, married the delectable Jane Birkin; with whom he had Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Birkin, however, left Gainsbourg after a several years. She then met and married another Frenchman; film director, Jaques Doillon. Together they had the fantastique Lou Doillon. Who’s style I am crushing hard on. The girl has a penchant for hats, skulls, leather, short-shorts and tight trousers among other things, of course I’m crushing.

I’m posting a bunch of photographs of all 4 of the above mentioned women and Serge, just to scroll through and be inspired by…

    Oh Jane Birkin, why can’t I have your perfect fringe and status as a luxury bag muse? Le sigh.

    Funny, I made a very similar post today before having read yours! (I have quite the back catalogue of posts to catch up on)

    Great bloggers think alike, ey? Even if you did beat me to it by a good week!

    I marvel at how stylish everyone in Gainsbourg’s life was, from his mistresses to his (step-)daughters. The man himself isn’t exactly classically good looking, but he too has that certain…oh…je ne sais quoi!
