The Insider's guide to Italian style

Our latest issue features a seven-page fashion story that was shot in Tod’s sumptuous Milanese HQ. The Italian men who took part are not models, but professionals and creatives who also feature in a beautiful new book that was commissioned by Tod’s CEO Diego Della Valle.

The book, Italian Touch, was written by style journalist Donata Sartorio and is illustrated with photographs by Paolo Leone. Della Valle wanted the book to capture both the beauty of Italy, in terms of its landscape and architecture, and the essence of relaxed Italian chic.

Read the fashion story, "Made in Milan" on page 147 of the October issue, out now.
