The luxury world of aristocrats, artists and fashion designers is presented in this book. Café-society fox trot, exclusive and extravagant parties of aristocrats, musicians, painters, fashion designers in Paris. The book was written by Thierry Coudert who contributed to the catalog made for the exhibition of Cartier 1899-1949: The Journey of a Style.

The world of café society is a world of glamour, elegance with people that lived a sophisticated avant-garde lifestyle. We can say a few names from café society like Cole Porter to Yves Saint Laurent. This world is related in this book through archival photographs and period documents.

“It was a whirlwind of sumptuously decorated villas and yachts, up-and-coming haute couture and jewelry designers, and elite evening parties, immortalized by fashion photographers like Cecil Beaton.”
