Bella Freud Je t'aime Jane Sweater
So I've fallen in love… With a sweater. And it's not just any sweater. Non, non, non. Embroidered onto the sweater is my daily mantra. Je t'aime Jane! Gainsbourg is God!
Okay, so I don't actually say that all the time, but I have developed a deep love for Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. From listening to their music much too frequently, to watching Slogan (the movie where the met), to finding photographs of the two for style inspiration, you could say I'm obsessed. They shared such a passionate love and it seemed utterly utopic!
Recently the sweater was only being sold on Bella Freud's website (a UK shop), but now, to my uncontrollable excitement, it has arrived at Net-A-Porter. Unfortunately it's too pricy a piece for a teen like me, so… Hey, Natalie Massenet? Wanna turn into an elf and stuff the jumper in my Christmas stocking? I'd be forever grateful.
If you could have a sweater alluding to your favorite
legendary couple, what would it say?
