BonBon’s new spring/summer collection embodies a strong sense of 70s retro-flavoured romance, passion, drama, and a picturesque love story from the capital of love - Paris. How did an actress who knew only a few words in French become the symbol of Parisian women, and what can we learn from her and other outstanding divas of that era?
French Passion That Stimulates Even 50 Years Later
Je t'aime, je t’aime
Oh oui, je t'aime
Je vais, je vais et je viens
Entre tes reins
It was 1969 when British actress Jane Birkin and French poet-musician-actor Serge Gainsbourg became an outstanding headline with their song "Je T'aime… Moi Non Plus” - a song bursting with fiery references of the couple’s passionate love making and its orgasmic completion. In addition to the erotic tone of the French language and unambiguous combination of words, the song creates an artistic space full of desire, primitive instincts and passionate chemistry between two individuals. Despite being banned in several countries, the scandalous song made its way to the top of the charts.
The sincere song was initially meant to be a personal love ballad to Gainsbourg’s lover, French actress Brigitte Bardot. But their love was cut short due to Bardot being already married to another man.
“Je T'aime… Moi Non Plus” was left to wait for Gainsbourg’s other half and muse, Jane Birkin - a woman who can be considered as one of the most influential style icons of that decade and a true symbol for Parisian women. Jane had the effortless skill to accentuate her sex appeal in even the most everyday clothing. Her style was timelessly simple and she had the ability to look gorgeous in both a lace dress as well as a plain white T-shirt and boyfriend jeans. It was her style that laid the foundation for the Parisian woman imagery.
Birkin and Gainsbourg ‘meet cute’ was the beginning of an internationally known love story that is an inspiration to a lot of romantics and artists till this day. What they shared wasn’t love at first sight nor a fairytale full of idyllic stories. It was a relationship full of addictive passion, dizzying emotions, public dramatic arguments, and most of all, insanely deep love. They couldn’t live with nor without each other. Despite the pair separating in the end, their love story lives on within the hearts of the French. Even 50 years later, “Je T'aime… Moi Non Plus” has an ecstatic and stimulating effect, similar to how a genuine and pleasurable relationship should feel.
The Era of Admirable Women
Jane Birkin and several other majestic women of that era, such as Cher and Debbie Harry, had one particular characteristic in common: the skill and courage to use their feminine charms in their favour. Didn’t matter what they wore or how their hair and makeup was done because their true element of attraction hid much deeper. It isn’t just confidence that a woman needs to bring a song full of passionate love making sounds and heavy breathing into the public eye. It is the fire and passion burning inside of her. It is being aware of one’s feminine magic and knowing how to utilise it.
Sadly, nowadays people tend to forget that feminine magic is present in all members of the more gentler sex. Playing with one’s sex appeal and feminine powers can be liberally bohemian or dramatically diva-like, it can reveal itself exclusively in the compact sexy details or in complete devotion to romance, passion and seduction.
For a woman’s true charisma to be revealed, all she needs is a desire to be the most charming and sincerest version of herself. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Spring, the time of new beginnings, is designed to make women blossom again. Everyone makes their own rules - just as much raw sex appeal, bohemian romance, provocative elegance, and star-like glitter as needed to bring out everyone’s inner glamorous diva.
