The
Monocle
Voyage
Collection

Monocle’s first fashion collection is tailored for travellers. Whether it’s a basic T-shirt or more refined travel jacket, Monocle’s team chose the finest materials from Japan and Italy to create beautiful and functional pieces. They’re comfortable for on-the-go wear, in-flight or on foot and the classic colours mean you can wear the whole collection or mix and match.


Launching in February 2014 the sharp range is functional, versatile and effortlessly handsome.

Monocle magazine’s creative team, based in London and lead by Daniela Diletto, has worked with the highest-quality manufacturers to create a collection that marks the magazine’s seventh anniversary.

The five-piece capsule is planned as an introduction point to an ongoing seasonal Monocle Voyage fashion collection.

Priced from £80 for the Japanese classic crew T-shirt, through to £400 for our unconstructed travel blazer, Monocle Voyage will be available exclusively at The Monocle Shops in London, New York, Hong Kong, and Toronto – and online at monocle.com.

Q&A with
designer
Daniela Diletto

What was the key inspiration behind the collection?

Voyage embodies the essence behind Monocle. Tyler's perpetually on-the-go lifestyle is at the root of my inspiration. It’s resulted in a ready-to-wear collection featuring classic essentials and a minimal colour range, designed for the well-travelled gentleman always looking for high standards of comfort and functionality.

Were there any particular design priorities running throughout the creative process?

The aim of the collection is to fill a gap in the wardrobe of those who constantly find themselves in a variety of climates and seasons; they are designed to work in Montréal in January and Sydney at the height of summer.


Tell us a little about what was involved in producing the collection.

High-quality textiles and manufacturing are core ingredients of Monocle Voyage. Italian fabrics and craftsmanship have been renowned since the Middle Ages and they continue to set the standard for quality. As for Japanese savoir-faire and ingenuity, it’s unmatched, hence the involvement of experts based in both Italy and Japan.

The firms we worked with in production are family-owned and share highly skilled workforces, from the spinning of yarns to manufacturing. Our travel jacket for instance, produced by a leading Padova-based tailor, is made from an exclusively developed "four season" twill cotton and features a customised treatment ensuring the fabric evolves its aspect the more you wear it.

Our crew-neck sweatshirt in Japanese loopback cotton, designed for style and comfort, employed the expertise of a 70-year-old Osaka-based textile company specialising in the development of original high-quality knits, jerseys and fleeces.
