Surrealist Ball at Ferriéres, 1972

Marie-Hélène Rothschild & Baron Alexis de Redé

Love these lost photos uncovered earlier this year. Man of style, Baron de Redé describes: On 12 December 1972, Marie-Hélène gave her Surrealist Ball at Ferriéres. This time the guests were asked to come in black tie and long dresses with Surrealist heads. The invitation was printed with reversed writing on a blue and cloudy sky, inspired by a painting by Magritte. To decipher the card, it had to be held to a mirror. More here.
