Microfiber pouch with zipper and leather tag, inner zip pocket, linen lining, 35 x 26 cm Portable Pleasure Culture Helmut Newton’s audacious comment on 1980s consumerism Hand-crafted in Italy from smooth microfiber, with super-soft linen linings of various vibrant colors, leather tags, and inner zip pockets, these versatile notecases combine form with function. Through a striking selection of designs, we bring color and character to every case. This shot – captured by the prolific and hugely imitated German-Australian photographer, Helmut Newton – is typical of his provocative and edgy style, which was so in demand on the fashion scene in the 1960s and 1970s. Instantly attention-grabbing and called simply Fat Hand and Dollars, Monte Carlo, 1984, it is a remarkable photograph in terms of how it shows so little but says so much about the all-consuming materialism of the 1980s. But even without knowing the background to the image, the brilliance of this design makes for a memorable case.
