BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE OF THE CAFE SOCIETY: Scrapbooks by the Baron de Cabrol
Long before Instagram was the rage, we would dive into books to find the lives we envied. This book is a creative masterpiece and was a huge inspiration for some of our work at @flamingo_estate. De Cabrol along with his wife, Baronne de Cabrol, were social swans in their heyday, oscillating between traditional French High Society and the Bohemian café scene. The baron’s famed scrapbooks included large painted scenes—with the heads of his friends (such as Duke and Duchess of Windsor) collaged on top of the bodies of tropical birds or ball gown–clad revelers.
