Decades after her debut, Jane Birkin was still one of fashion’s most recognized muses.
Her unique style, which marked an era, remains a great inspiration for many contemporary designers and models. And that’s because her aesthetic managed to combine the elegant and chic je ne sais quoi of Paris with the carelessness of London. Sexy, relaxed and elegant at the same time, Birkin has always managed to amaze the public with her formidable fashion.
Confident, he had a remarkable ability to transform the ordinary into something extraordinary, making even the simplest things seem extraordinary. Perhaps it was her love of clothes in general, as she preferred them to be sturdy and full of character. He once said: “My look is like a cocktail. I’m not as well dressed as the French, but I don’t care like the English.’ It was this understanding of who she was and what she liked that provided irrefutable proof that true style is all about attitude.
Who can forget the bespoke Paco Rabanne mini dress she wore for a night out with husband Serge Gainsbourg, or the iconic Hermès bag that now bears her name. On July 16, fashion’s iconic It girl passed away.
In commemoration of her contribution to fashion and her unparalleled style, Vassilis Zoulias designed a collection inspired by Jane Birkin’s wardrobe for Spring Summer ’24, which he presented as part of Greek Fashion Week.
100% linen, silk, cotton, and viscose pieces with lace and embroidered floral details. They made us want to squeal with joy because the collection has clothes that will make you say “I want this. That too. Oh, and that.”
And Pericles Kondylatos, who designed the jewelry, once again made a strong statement. Olive leaves, ears of corn and fruits dominate everywhere and in combination with the straw baskets that Birkin carried with almost everything they emphasize the free spirit of the unforgettable and now legendary personality.
The fashion show took place at the imposing Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center where the panoramic steps of the lighthouse were transformed into a huge impressive catwalk overlooking Athens.

From her signature jeans and white tee to the crochet mini, her casual yet glamorous style had one of the most profound influences on women’s fashion to date, forever transforming the way we dress.
And Vassilis Zoulias managed to convey it uniquely.
