Playing to the gallery

Wednesday 3 December

As Art Basel and Design Miami take over Florida this week, Monocle’s Megan Billings asks how these international creative showcases are retaining their identities in a swirling sea of parties, press events and pop-ups.

Last month I had the pleasure of venturing to Miami Beach for Monocle. There I took a peek into the culture scene slightly ahead of the rush of visitors who would soon be visiting for Art Basel and Design Miami. It was a…

All aboard

Tuesday 2 December

The morning rush hour is an intrinsic if slightly frantic part of London life. But Monocle 24’s Alice Bloch says that Londoners need to remember to respect their fellow travellers amid all the chaos.

On a busy tube-train platform last week, I witnessed a familiar sight. As a train pulled in, commuters jostled into position to climb onboard and get to work. As usual the doors opened to reveal a mass of bodies with little…

In praise of uncaught worms

Friday 28 November

Fernando Augusto Pacheco sees little benefit in being an early bird – in fact, he’s at his most creative when he’s had a nice lie-in.

People saying how much they love waking up feeling sprightly in the morning is a well-worn cliché. Either that or it’s me being jealous of the fact that I really can’t identify with this feel-good vibe when the alarm clock…

Gobbling it up

Thursday 27 November

Disastrous midterms, immigration issues and riots have meant that Barack Obama has had a lot on his plate – so sparing a turkey from one this Thanksgiving will have come as light relief.
