Aristocrats, millionaires, painters, fashion designers, choreographers, and musicians of the caf? society fox-trot aboard cruise liners and mingle at dazzling parties in Paris. Exclusive, extravagant, and beautiful, these cosmopolitan socialites were the patrons who galvanized the phenomenal success of the greatest creators of the early twentieth century.

Combining elegance and fantasy, the members of the caf? society enjoyed a sophisticated, avant-garde lifestyle. Some of the century?s most original talents?from Cole Porter to Yves Saint Laurent?stepped into the limelight via the caf? society. Through archival photographs and period documents, this volume recounts in historical detail the intrigue and impact generated around the world by this stylish jet-set.
