      Elles sont vraiment fidèles au style androgyne de la “classieuse” (c’est Serge Gainsbourg qui avait inventé ce terme XD) Charlotte Gainsbourg ! xx

      Oh, moi aussi ! Jane Birkin y est un peu pour quelque chose ! J’ai toujours suivi de près la délicieuse Charlotte Gainsbourg, et oui, elle-aussi fait partie des personnes douées en tout ! Pas de jalousie car quand on ne réussit pas (et qu’on tombe), on ne reste pas là où on est tombé, et, pour coller à ta fantastique citation de Socrate, on tente autre chose ! XD

    I see the colours, despite the black and white. Thanks for a beautiful visual, Mayann…

      You’re so welcome, thanks a lot ! Black-and-white suits the exquisite Charlotte Gainsbourg so well, no wonder all her fantastic album covers have magnificent black-and-white visuals !
