Once thought of as a costume item or something that was largely culturally specific, the folding fan has firmly re-entered the Western fashion canon. Konfekt pays a visit to London’s Fan Museum to meet historian Mary Kitson and discover this accessory’s storied past.

We meet the Paris-based designer, gallerist and collector Jessica Barouch to explore her refit of the classic hotel La Bastide de Saint-Tropez. She spoke to Konfekt’s deputy editor, Chiara Rimella, about the Riviera’s more laid-back, natural side – and why her interior-design philosophy matches it just so.

The Atlantic coast: Casa Reîa

Casa Reîa is a new oceanfront beach bar and restaurant that’s just opened its doors this summer in Caparica beach near Lisbon. But this isn’t an ordinary beach club: this is a place where gastronomy, music and sensorial experiences all come together, with the sand, sea and blue sky serving as a backdrop.
