it's as if any discerning global hub or glamourous resort is vying for a monocle store. the london-based magazine has just opened a pop-up store at beymen in nişantaşı, a swanky neighbourhood in istanbul. as the luxury department store is quite keen to raise its profile internationally and the magazine eager to align itself with the very best in retail, this retail collab seems a perfect fit to do so. the two parties collaborated on the shop's design and have come up with a modular retail setting in stylish light oak wood. the pop-up features variety of monocle-branded products across stationery, fashion, design and travel. also on offer are several new exclusive product collaborations for monocle, including the drake’s summer handkerchiefs, the taiwan slippers and the accordion notebook. the magazine's may issue can also be snapped up, in addition to a selection of exclusive posters [open through may 18]. location: abdi ıpekçi caddesi 23/1 [nişantaşı].
