Diego Della Valle’s enamorment with all things JFK (he famously purchased the late president’s cruiser, Marlin, at auction at Christie’s in 2005) extends well beyond the White House. From July 2 to August 20, the Tod’s chief is sponsoring a new exhibition of iconic images taken by Italian paparazzi photographer Settimio Garritano of Jackie-O on holiday in Capri from 1968 to 1972.

Hosted at La Conchiglia bookshop on the jet-set Italian island—where, coincidentally, Della Valle has a sizable residence and a newly-revamped Tod’s shop—a catalogue of the images, entitled “Jackie’s Capri, Photographs by Settimio Garritano,” has been produced, as has a small capsule collection of classic Tod’s accessories to mark the collaboration—a bracelet, a Gommino moccasin and a D-bag—all in Capri-inspired blue and available at select Tod’s stores worldwide.
