We’ve been very busy recently, with the end of LDF (London Design Festival) closely followed by the Frieze and the Affordable Art fairs. The V&A also launched its long-awaited Fabrics of India exhibition.

In between attending these, we published our first Shoes articles. We started with a question that flummoxes many men we know – What Are Shoes Really For?! We also spent a day being a shoe designer, thanks to modern technology, and filled our fantasy art gallery with shoes 🙂

We also kicked off our Ethical & Sustainable series, and are excited about filling this semi-regular slot in coming issues.

If you like watches, you’ll definitely want to check out this issue. And if that’s not your thing, you’ll still love to read about Rebecca Struthers – a breath of fresh air in the staid, white, male world of fine watchmaking.

Finally, we showcased some wonderful artists you won’t see in a gallery, including some who work with flowers as their medium of choice, and an unbelievable video of Stefan Pabst creating one of his amazing 3D optical illusions from nothing more than a pencil and paper.

And we still found time to attend Spectre on the opening day, red carpet and all!
