"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A focus for fashion since its conception by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, First Architect to the Sun King, Louis XIV, the Place Vendome in Paris has over the years been home to prestigious jewellers and couturiers, perfumiers and financiers, including Van Cleef, Cartier and Schiaparelli - as well as more infamous characters. Those who have left their mark range from Coco Chanel and Frederic Worth to Edward, Prince of Wales, the Vanderbilts and the Rothschilds. This text reconstructs the history of the Place Vendome from its beginnings as a high-risk property speculation to its life in the 20th century as the playground of the rich and famous. A paean to conspicuous consumption, the book also contains archive photographs.
