• The Must-See:

    Jane & Serge

    Iconic couple Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg are celebrated at London’s Proud Chelsea next month. Speaking exclusively to The EDIT, Birkin’s brother Andrew, who is co-curating the exhibition, said: “She was a sweet English rose and he was a decadent, genius poet. But it was a relationship made in heaven. Even though they separated, they never really parted until he died.” A fly-on-the-wall look at the most sublime of sweethearts.

    The power pairing:

    A white shirt & neck tie

    Cultivate a Patti Smith-inspired look (her own style icon was French poet Rimbaud) with a white collared shirt and a loose necktie. High-rise jeans – the go-to shape for a deceptively slim waist – and masculine flats keep it modern.
