Van Cleef & Arples: Black &White.
The writer, Truman Capote, gave this ball to mark his literary success. He has decided to celebrate
his moment of glory by inviting “the 500 most famous people in the world”. They have all adapted
their attire to the dress code and theme of the party: “Black &White”. Everything was black and
white that 28th of April 1966 evening in the ballroom of New York’s Plaza Hotel.
The finest craftsmanship is used on this Poetic ComplicationTM to represent the Art Deco
architecture of the city: onyx background, mother-of-pearl marquetry and gold-sculpting. The
passing of time is associated with the graceful turning of the dancers animated by a 24h Poetic
ComplicationTM.
