Rue de Verneuil x Konfekt Palais Royal striped canvas tote bag

€290

monocle’s sister magazine, Konfekt, has teamed up with Rue de Verneuil to create a head-turning tote. Designed by Vincent Ribat, Rue de Verneuil’s founder, it recalls both the sturdy canvas US toolbags of the 1950s and the sun-kissed glamour of the French Riviera. Our tote, made from cotton with a canvas lining, has a detachable strap, so it can hang from the shoulder or hand. If that doesn’t sway you, the stripes surely will.

material:Cotton canvas with leather handle.
colour: Camel and orange stripes.
made in: France.

€95

20210330-sp-steteco-x-monocle_031-.jpg

Steteco x Monocle shirt and shorts

€110 and €90

In the 19th-century Meiji era, steteco were worn by Japanese men under their kimono and hakama (traditional trousers). But these soft base layers virtually disappeared from Japanese wardrobes – until the brand Steteco decided to revive them in 2008. Steteco’s products are made in Japan from lightweight, quick-drying cotton that is slightly bumpy for extra breathability. The pieces are designed to be worn either as breezy daywear or loungewear at home. We’ve teamed up to offer this exclusive navy pullover shirt and matching shorts to keep you looking sharp while feeling cool and comfortable.

material: Cotton.
colour: Navy.
made in: Japan.
