Roland Mouret: Pro­voke, At­tract, Se­duce By Roland Mouret and Alexan­der Fury. Rizzoli. The French de­signer in con­ver­sa­tion with fash­ion writer and his­to­rian Fury. This ode to Mouret and his com­pany is more valu­able for its Q-and-A text than the pho­tos of var­i­ous mod­els and col­lec­tions. It’s all very French: “You know, I’ve learned ev­ery­thing about fash­ion in bed,” Mouret says. “Ev­ery body I’ve touched has taught me some­thing about dress­ing it.” ($116) Rolex: The Im­pos­si­ble Col­lec­tion By Fa­bi­enne Rey­baud. As­souline. If you can af­ford a Rolex, you can af­ford to gift this stun­ning, lim­it­ededi­tion over­sized book about the brand, its his­tory and its celebrity fol­low­ing. By big, we mean 14-by-17 inches, in a hand­crafted clamshell case with colour plates hand-tipped on art qual­ity pa­per. The lux­ury time pieces are shown off on the wrists of every­body from Pi­casso to Pope John Paul II. ($845)
