MONOCLE

What began as Monocle Magazine – a global glossy covering travel, culture, and design – has expanded into something far beyond reading material. Monocle’s first retail store in New York is located on Hudson Street in a prime, red brick building with a classic black façade in the West Village. It’s the magazine’s fifth retail installment after the success of the London, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Hong Kong locations. The humble, 188 square-foot postage stamp of a space carries a thoughtfully-curated and international collection of items ranging from Porter bags to Comme des Garçons for the Hinoki fragrance and candles to Another Country stools and benches to Skeppshult bikes and Inoue Brothers sweaters. And then there passport holders from Belgian luxury brand Delvaux, Choux à la Crème notebooks from Lebanon, and swim trunks from Italian designer Alberto Aspesi, which basically means we’ll take several subscriptions of everything here.
