Style: Serge Gainsbourg, style icon of the week

It's been a long time since we don't publish a post about style. But today, we're ready to retake this section of the blog and we'd like to talk about Serge Gainsbourg. 

Serge was a French singer, songwriter, pianist, film composer, poet, painter, screenwriter, writer, actor and director. Regarded as one of the most important figures in French popular music, he was renowned for his often provocative and scandalous releases, as well as his diverse artistic output, which embodied genres ranging from jazzmamboworldchansonpop and yé-yé, to rock and rollprogressive rockreggaeelectronicdisco and new wave. Gainsbourg's varied musical style and individuality make him difficult to categorize although his legacy has been firmly established and he is often regarded as one of the world's most influential popular musicians.

We specially like this photo of Serge where he appears with three-piece pinstripe suit worn without a tie or socks, but with his favourite white Repetto dancing shoes.

We're sure you recognize this beautiful song he wrote =)
