We spent years dreaming of our (re)considered retail space and in November last year, after months of hard work, it finally materialised. One year on, and we’re extremely proud to have won Dezeen’s ‘Small Retail Interior of the Year’ award.
To celebrate the launch of our new Limited Edition Chiltern frame, MONC friend and Chiltern Street local Eddies Wailes has put together an area guide of his favourite places on, and around Chiltern Street.
A note from Freddie When we add to our collection, we do it with a plan not to create something...
Glasses can be fragile, there’s no denying that, but they’re not always unrepairable. Repairing the things we own is a fundamental part of reducing our impact on the planet.
We've taken our time to reflect on the IPCC 2021 Climate Change Report that has recently been published.
Explore Grünerløkka, an artsy centre of Oslo, Norway, that inspired our quirky frame Løkka.
In the heart of Rome, you'll find the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Monti, busy with bars, shops and traditional restaurants, loved by a loyal local crowd. Every corner of this artsy neighbourhood inspired the elegant and subtle flair of our Monti frame.
Over a year ago, we started work on designing our most recent collection in collaboration with Oliver Spencer which would be our very first foray into wire frame design. Take a look inside our new wire frame workshop where our new collection was crafted.
Presenting a trio of frames inspired by the British south coast. Consisting of Lymington, Beaulieu and Osborne styles, each frame takes a bold approach to modern style while honouring the importance of everyday wearability.
Our Founder Freddie reached out to Oli as an avid admirer of what he does and with an opportunity to, as collaborators, create a specialist eyewear collection to match the quality of his clothes.
No matter where we are in the world,we’re all dealing with a lot right now. We’re looking at how to look out for each other and how to take care of ourselves.
At MONC, we don't do new for the sake of new. We do new for good reason. That's why we're (re)introducing a better, less impactful version of three of our original designs. Earlier in the year we redesigned our Kallio frame and now it's the turn of Gràcia, Kreuzberg and Södermalm.
