TASCHEN Store Paris celebrated the launch of Jane & Serge


On the evening of October 22, TASCHEN Store Paris hosted Jane and Andrew Birkin in celebration of Jane & Serge. A Family Album.
 
The evening was a great success, we had the pleasure and surprise to welcome Charlotte Gainsbourg and Kate Barry, Jane’s two daughters, who were very kind with our clients and even signed some autographs. Our editor Alison Castle and the designers from M/M also joined the party. The afternoon was very Parisian, sweet but also very cerebral, in real this afternoon was like Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg, dark, deep, funny, and poetic. Special thanks to Jane and Andrew for the success of this memorable evening. 


Selected Quotations from International Media

"La libreria della celebre casa editrice, disegnata da Philippe Starck, sembra un quadro vivente. Merito della vetrina senza infissi. Sull'isola centrale tutte le novità, dall'arte alla fotografia, all'arredamento." — Condé Nast Traveller, Milano, Italy
"Ses livres y ont le beau rôle, mais si ce lieu ne désemplit pas, c'est qu'il a un supplément d'âme." — Paris Match, Paris, France
"Les plus beaux livres d'art, et les plus originaux, c'est souvent la maison Taschen qui les édite." — Elle, Paris, France
"Bijou de librairie...Taschen laisse aux autres librairies l'atmosphère grisâtre, mixte de poussière et d'éclairage chagrinant. Le plus génial des éditeurs européens a confié à Philippe Starck le design de sa première boutique parisienne". — France Soir, Paris, France
