Once the epitome of refined worldly glamour, the term "jet set" evokes images of exotic global destinations and golden beaches; secret rendezvous on luxurious yachts; star-studded parties in grand mansions, with women adorned in couture gowns and sparkling jewels, and men in sophisticated tuxedos. The people of the jet set were the last vestiges of a leisured and cultivated age, a world of taste and culture, elegance and beauty.
Swans: Legends of the Jet Society captures the spirit of this world, in which today’s technology was the stuff of science fiction, when foreign travel was the preserve of a privileged cosmopolitan few. From bygone aristocracy to modern mega-wealthy moguls, this stunning volume regales with escapades of travel, money, sex, and adventure. These are the legends of the jet set—tales of glamour, excitement, and exclusivity.
