Monocle March '09 Fashion Spread...On The March
Today we picked up the new Monocle March 2009 issue and their fashion spread this time is just perfect. Having in mind the rainy days that lie ahead of us within early Spring, Monocle smartly mixes technical outerwear with classic workwear and casual fashion. We have absolutely nothing to complain on these outfits and love the mix of Japanese brands (Visvim, North Face Purple Label, Needles) and US and European brands (Woolrich Woolen Mills, Brooks Brothers, etc). The tote bags come from Bottega Veneta and also look great.
Monocle’s fashion spreads are probably my favorite of any publication. I tend to look at them about 10-15 times each issue and try to figure out why I like them so, how they are shot so well? If it’s the great designers, classic models, or great printing of the magazine? I found it’s probably better to just enjoy, and not think about it too much. This March’s issue is also a big one, or two - as it’s Monocle’s 2 year anniversary issue. It’s pretty amazing what the publication has accomplished in only two years. Print, audio, video, retail and products - all of the highest caliber and seemingly appreciated by a few folks out there. Besides loving the fashion spreads like this one, I have been really enjoying the Monocle Weekly pod-casts on the website. They are easier to digest than reading about some of the topics, and with interesting perspectives and a nice sense of humour, I am starting to actually wish there were daily episodes. Anyways, the color palette of the spread is perfect. The navy, natural tones look great and are pieced together really nicely. Brands include; Visvim, North Face Purple Label, Needles, and Woolrich Woolen Mills. I really appreciate how wearable these looks are, and while I may not be able to afford many of the items, the general atmosphere of the spread is whats inspiring. Thanks to Selectism for the images.Have a look at more images of the Monocle March ‘09 fashion spread, entitled “On The March”, after the jump.
