Get a behind the scenes look at when happened when Sotheby’s asked French fashion editor Carine Roitfeld to style a contemporary performance of the Ballets Russes’ acclaimed 1911 creation ‘Le Spectre de la rose’. Find out where Carine found inspiration for her unusual take on the make-up and costumes and see how the collaboration culminated in an exclusive look at the final performance. Named after the ballet in honour of its Russian heritage, the ‘Spirit of the Rose’ is also the name of a 14.83-carat Fancy Vivid Purple-Pink Internally Flawless diamond being offered in our upcoming auction Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels (11 November Geneva). The sale takes place during our inaugural Festival of Wonder, celebrating the finest examples of jewels, watches, handbags and automobiles.
