Jane Birkin is one of a kind. Star of controversial and sensual films, the muse and partner of French icon Serge Gainsbourg. Human rights activist and winner of the OBE and the French Ordre National du Mérite. Inspiration for the classic Hermes Birkin bag. And now, you can add fashion designer.
Luxury cashmere and wool knitwear line Lutz & Patmos invited Birkin to design select pieces of the 2009 spring collection. The pieces include the Jane Birkin v-neck sweater, which is something of a signature look for her, (no seriously, she wears one all the time!) and the matching scoop neck tank. Both are made of organic Scottish cashmere, and come in chic shades of black, grey heather and mocha heather.
These are investment pieces -- the v-neck is $695, and the tank is $595 -- but you do get free shipping between now and March 31st. If you've always dreamed of dressing like a European bohemian legend, this is your chance!
