The magazine for Sharp Dressing, Drinking, Dining, Travel and Design.

The inside story

We go behind the scenes to showcase the making of the magazine and to shine a spotlight on Konfekt’s chic understated glamour, convivial hospitality and sense of discovery.

Your chic autumn companion

Konfekt is a sharp, elegant and well-turned-out magazine from the creators of Monocle, which launched in December 2020. 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. Issue four is on newsstands and is available to order now. 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. It’s an ebullient host, a fresh autumnal dip in the Rhine, a long mountain trek with spirited conversation and a lingering lunch propelled by great wine and frank debate. Issue 4 meets a new generation of wine pioneers at the foot of mount Etna, a passionate collector of Brazilian modernism and independent retailers around the world.

The radical history of swimwear, a glass of rosé and a train trip

Sophie Grove, Marcela Palek and Gillian Dobias discuss the history of women's swimwear with V&A senior curator Sonnet Stanfill, before bringing it up to date with Peter Hornung from Swiss fashion brand Round Rivers. Elsewhere, we meet the Viennese family whose world-renowned metal workshop has been passed down through five generations, sample some summer rosé with Chandra Kurt and celebrate the transportive nature of a long train journey.
