I love very much this song. Composed by Serge Gainsbourg, it became the flag song of France Gall who performed it for the first time in 1964. Recently, April March made two covers of it, one in French, and the second in English (whose title is Chick Habit) that was also part of the soundtrack of Tarantino's Grindhouse. What I love in this song is its kitsch taste, with the voice of the singer quite irritating and naughty but melodic at the same time, and the fact that it smells so much of 1960s. Moreover, and most importantly, what I love in this song as well is the way in which it presents a woman that does not fear about to show her childish and fickle side without allowing to anybody to trample on her.
And I took inspiration from this "sweet steadiness" for creating these bracelets that, with their retro style, will be able to enlighten these first spring days. You find them on my etsy.
