To be completely honest, as soon as we saw the cover of this book we pre-ordered a copy. We later discovered that Carlo Mollino was an architect, furniture designer, writer, race-car driver and erotic photographer. After who knows how many classical shoots, Mollino started using Polaroids. Un Messaggio dalla Camera Oscura is the previously unpublished collection of his Polaroid work. It doesn’t translate to anything close to racy (“A Message from Camera Obscura”), but based on the fact the content of the book is largely statuesquely posed prostitutes it makes up for it elsewhere. Mollino is Terry Richardson before the Internet and this book is his gift to all of us from the grave.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
