Gentlewoman style: Jane Birkin in Vogue



Jane Birkin Westman Atelier

Love this feature and photo of Jane Birkin in U.S Vogue in which she discusses music, beauty, style, bereavement and the human condition.

It’s a lovely lengthy read and this is my favourite bit:
“I think at 40 years old, I was at my best, really. Not for me at 20 or 25. Forty is, I think, a great, great age for a girl, 40 and even 50. It’s a lovely age because girls are as fragile as when they’re 15, and they don’t know what’s coming up. They know what they’re losing, but they don’t know what they’re going to get; 40 and 50 is a bit like that. You turn into something else a little bit, and it’s rather exciting. You do rash things. You do rash things because it’s your last chance in lots of ways, so I find that girls of 40 are interesting characters to write for, and 50 too.” (more…)

(UPDATED) Shop the post: Uniqlo U SS21



Uniqlo U SS21

Loving the new Uniqlo U SS21 look book, which features the ‘walking in the city’ vibe now familiar from artistic director Christophe Lemaire and partner Sarah-Linh Tran’s shows.

(UPDATE: Scroll down to shop the post.)

The collection has all the pieces we expect from Uniqlo U – superior shirting, fine gauge knits, trench coats, plus some great looking denim. I’ve not really rated Uniqlo’s denim until now but these true blue washes and cuts look like they’re aiming to grab some Arket market share.

The collection launches on 28th January and there’s men’s and kids’ too.
