Monocle – Issue 121: France Special
Monocle magazine is a global look at current affairs, business, culture and design, with articles on politics and business in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas, news on global culture from cultural centres like Tokyo, Paris and London, and featuring inspiring designs. Published 10 times a year and with many fans of it's style and content, Monocle provides a close look at everything going on in the world.
Monocle’s France-themed March issue is on newsstands around the world now. Our editors and photographers were dispatched to all corners of La République to paint a nuanced picture of a country with panache, covering everything from aviation and architecture to business and bread. We find out why its navy is riding high in Toulon, where the nation’s fleet is angling for a world-leading military role. We ask why the French turn on their leaders – from storming the Bastille to turning on Macron – and see how one factory nailed it. We also ask why switched-on Americans see the future of TV in Lyon, and meet the Franco-Syrian refugee who launched a global construction firm.
