An intoxicating look at the exciting times of the 1920s on the Cote d'Azur, and the exhilarating impact on arts and culture

In the 1920s an intoxicating mix of artists, writers and musicians played on the Cote d'Azur.  This liberating playground of ideas inspired visual design arts, impressionism and the new fashion world of Chanel.
