Konfekt – Issue 03
Konfekt is a magazine for Sharp Dressing, Drinking, Dining, Travel and Design from the creators of Monocle.
Edited between Zürich and London, and printed in Germany, it is a rich, sumptuous quarterly publication covering fashion, travel, design, drinking, dining and culture in both English and German.
With good humour, an exacting eye and a brave spirit, Konfekt celebrates a chic, understated glamour, seeks out lesser-known stories and opens closed doors. It’s an ebullient host, a mountain trek, a winter spin on a handsome bike and even a leap into an icy lake (with the promise of a warming Reisetbauer eau de vie).
Edited by Monocle magazine’s senior editor and former Paris editor Sophie Grove and with Marcela Palek as style director, Konfekt also calls on a roster of leading journalists, thinkers and photographers from Germany, Switzerland, France and beyond. Konfekt offers an authoritative voice with wit, wisdom and just the right amount of warmth and wonder.
Issue 03 is an ode to the summer road trip; we visit the French cowboys of the Camargue (and meet the artisans crafting their distinctive apparel) and hit the road with Slovakian fashion designer Kristína Šipulová. We’ll pull up a chair (and pour a glass of soave) for a long, searching lunch with a circle of formidable designers at the Venice Architecture Biennale and sit down for a long meal in the Turkish town of Izmir cooking and preserving their Sephardic Jewish recipes.
