"Jane Birkin knows how to dress. This becomes obvious when you talk to her. She also knows how to give a very literary dimension to her attraction to this material or that shape.
So, we worked at trying to perfect all her daily outfits with her and under her guidance. I admit that, on the surface, it doesn't look like anything special, because there's nothing spectacular about it, except - using Jane's own words - good basic materials that age well, because she likes to keep her clothing for years, and finishes that live up to their name.
In reality, she was the only person we could have done this kind of work with, which is, at the same time, a kind of return to our roots in terms of the Old A.P.C. work method."
