JANE & SERGE

The legendary couple Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg made a big impression. Seductive figures, the two artists evoke passion and taboos, sweeping us up in Serge’s musical world with singular charm. Both success and doubts are intertwined in “Je t’aime… moi non plus” which has remained and will remain forever etched in the collective memory.

Photographed by the photographic legend Bert Stern for Vogue magazine, Jane and Serge strike a pose in a series of images that are at once artistic and intimate, thus offering us a window into their happiness at its peak.

THE BIRTH OF A LEGENDARY COUPLE

It was in 1968 that the encounter between the two future lovers took place, when director Pierre Grimblat chose them to star in his film Slogan. br>The first interviews between Jane and Serge were a veritable fiasco. The hostility between the two actors was such that, to save his film, Pierre Grimblat took a risk that eventually paid off: he invited them both for dinner, leaving them to talk alone. That was how, after the meal and a trip to a nightclub, Gainsbourg and Birkin fell deeply in love with one another.

“Life is not worth living without love.” Serge Gainsbourg

Jane, who initially considered Serge to be “someone very complicated and arrogant”, discovered that this attitude was only a façade, that he was actually someone very “gentle, charming, and funny”. So began a love story that was to last for twelve years, one of the greatest romances of the twentieth century, the memory of which continues to ignite imaginations today.
