françoise hardy, you were cooler than literally everyone. i mean it.
above: just wearing a full-body metallic suit, no big deal.
below: hanging out with serge gainsbourg.
“to me, they were really just my parents. we had a lovely life. we went to private school. but they had quite an eccentric life, going into nightclubs and coming back when we got up to go to school. that was kind of weird. but apart from that, we had a very normal life. they had simple tastes. their idea was to always keep your feet on the ground, so that’s what we did. i was able to go on the street, and it was normal when people came up to them and asked for autographs. it was just part of everyday life. i just learned through their way of living – through all of that fame to always be happy when someone comes up to ask for an autograph. people really loved them in a very honest way. it wasn’t until very late that i understood what my father was writing about. i had lived with his songs all my life, but i never really understood the lyrics, or what went into them. of course, it is special because now i know that my father was a genius. but he lived in a very casual way.”
– charlotte gainsbourg in interview magazine, feb. 2012. she’s so chill; it’s impressive.

take away the cigarette and this was me today, tired and immobile.
except charlotte is much cooler, obviously.
a lovely photo of jane + serge. he looks so debonair.
