more than just a bag

Jane Birkin
I can't just call her a muse for
the French songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg,
or the inspiration for the Hermes Birkin Bag.
She was an icon of the 60s
and bred a line of fashionistas to follow.

Vogue '66
Blow Up
On an Air France flight Jane pulled something out of her bag and all her papers fell to the floor. She complained to the passenger sitting next to her that the bag needed pockets. That passenger was the chairman of hermes, Jean-Louis Dumas.
Jane's daughters are carrying on her glamour...
Kate Barry-
Most famously known for her own fashion photography
Lou Doillon
Charlotte Gainsbourg

Polly Pocket!

The other night my friend mentioned Polly Pocket and I remembered just how amazing they were!

Patouf SS11

I really like some of the pieces from Anna Angseryd's Patouf SS11 collection.  Although there were some stunning shots from the collection's fashion film, 
I find the actual video a bit... dull .

Susanna Lau

I've always given respect to the stunning interviews done on SHOWstudio.  They really know how to bring out a bit of stye and grace through the camera.  Lucky me this Monday their In Fashion interviewee will be one of my favorites - Susanna Lau 
(known as Sussie Bubble on her blog Style Bubble
Some of her recent posts I loved:
Bringing light to Teddy Girls! Some of my top inspirations from some fearless fashionistas.

Her ode to the upcoming postcard prints we have to look forward to.
In my opinion they are ridiculously wonderful.  
Pauline Borca

Her love for Tsumori Chisato's mixed prints, folksy patchwork, and innovative collections.
And of course, her unwavering sense of style...
