Muse Monday: Jane Birkin

Last month I wrote about Lou Doillon. This week I am writing about her mom, Jane Birkin.

Perhaps you have heard of the little known, under-the-radar designer bag, the Hermes Birkin? It was named after French songstress and actress, Jane. As lore goes, Jane was boarding a flight and the basket she used as a purse took a tumble while she was settling into her cabin, effectively spilling all of her belongings. It just so happened that the creative director of Hermes was in the same cabin and sketched out a design for a handbag on the spot.

And a legend was born.
