JANE BIRKIN INSPIRATION
- ACTRESS, SINGER & FASHION ICON…
ICHI’s autumn collection is inspired by the beautiful British actress, singer and fashion icon, Jane Birkin. Particularly her role as the enigmatic blonde model in Michelangelo Antonioni’s film masterpiece Blowup from 1966. With its artistic interior settings, its mystic and its cast of young beautiful actors, Blowup set the stage for swinging London with all of its coolness, casualness and extravagance.
In Blowup Birkin herself took the whole world by storm as the provocative blonde model working for a young handsome photographer. The film became famous for its nude-model scenes and the story has a touch of horror too as the photographer unwittingly takes photographs of a murder in a park.
Blowup was the breakthrough for Birkin who soon became the it-girl of her time, famous for discrete boyish beauty and a mystic, intelligent appearance.
The winning collage has the perfect ICHI Autumn 13 feel. We love the 2 pictures of Jane Birkin that you picked – and mixed with a cool ICHI dress and a lot of nice accessories and a guitar - you tell a beautiful story. We like that you keep the mood in grey tones with a few hues – it gives a strong expression. !
BIG congratulation from the ICHI team
