If you’re a lomography fan, or just looking for a super cool hostess gift for a friend who’s generous with her beach house, this new camera is so neat.

Lomography chic: La Sardina Camera

The St. Tropez edition of the La Sardina Camera
makes me feel elegant just trilling the r’s in the name. It’s
got an 89-degree wide angle lens which is so fun for summer landscapes
packed cocktail parties on the lawn, and it’s so easy to use, you can
juggle settings and snap away while balancing a mojito in your other
hand. That fabulous look comes from an exterior of upcycled stripey deck
chair fabric, making each camera one-of-a-kind.
