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 winter companion

Konfekt is a sharp, elegant and well-turned-out quarterly magazine from the creators of Monocle. Edited between Zürich and London, and printed in Germany, it is a rich, sumptuous publication covering fashion, travel, design, drinking, dining and culture.

Our first anniversary issue is available now and is brimming with warming winter wonders, festive ideas and chic seasonal looks.

It’s an ebullient host, a schuss down a snowy mountain and a hearty Tyrolean lunch propelled by good wine and sparky debate. Issue 5 meets the Bavarian inn-keepers reinventing an old farmhouse, takes a tour of an eclectic Viennese apartment and wile away the evening with the two Zürich curators who craft bespoke Christmas soirées – including an avant-garde artist-designed spruce.

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.

Issue five of Konfekt is a celebration of wintering well, from where to travel for frosty fun to what to wear and cook this season. We’re outdoors snow-shoeing, riding horses and swimming off Frisian beaches; then revelling in cosy interiors, recipes for seasonal feasts and trimming Christmas trees with an artistic twist.
