Konfekt preview: Issue 14

Let the fresh air in – Konfekt’s spring issue is here to celebrate the promise of the new season. From a Belgian tree-grower to a bonsai master in Kyoto and a lush gardening shop in Vienna, our inaugural horticulture special will plant some bright ideas on how leafy additions can improve your surroundings – and your approach.


Your chic companion

Konfekt is a clever, elegant quarterly magazine launched in 2020 by the creators of Monocle. Edited between Zürich and London, and printed in Germany, it is a deep dive into the worlds of fashion, craft, travel and design.

With a focus on unhurried reportage - and plenty of long, lingering suppers and brisk reviving swims - Konfekt is a celebration of spirited hosts and hikes in the wilds and beautiful things made well.

Each issue is brimming with inspiring travel itineraries, tasty recipes and chic seasonal looks.

Keep up to date with all things Konfekt via our equally joyful newsletter and monthly podcast.

With good humour, an exacting eye and a brave spirit, Konfekt celebrates a chic, understated glamour.

Watchmaking, Turkish baths and Nordic spring

This episode is infused with the spirit of a transformative travelogue: we begin in the incredible 500-year-old Cinili Hamam in Istanbul’s Zeyrek district, reflect on the power and beauty of expansive, flat landscapes and hear tales of innovation and craftsmanship with Van Cleef & Arpels. Plus: the misplaced optimism of a Nordic spring.
