Also around the table is Penny Martin, editor in chief of The Gentlewoman, the newest fashion title to hit international newsstands, and André Balazs, America's most innovative hotelier and property developer.

THE PROGRAMME


Hosted by editor in chief Tyler Brûlé, The Monocle Weekly is a mix of smart discussion, previews, field reports and feature interviews. From our studio in London and our bureaux in Tokyo and New York, Monocle's editors focus on the stories shaping the week ahead.

Culture editor Robert Bound is a regular with his weekly playlist of artists established and obscure and editor Andrew Tuck is at hand to moderate debates and pull in contributions from our correspondents in far flung corners of the world.
