The human race is a social order that finds meaning in love and companionship. Friends are a natural consequence and such an important factor in many people’s lives that we dedicate this month’s edition to the subject.

We examine what forms this attachment in its many different guises and feature some famous best friends as well as examples of enduring friendships.

September is one of the best months for personal time here on the Coast and to enjoy life with friends and to help you do so, we bring you the lowdown on what’s trending, including the forthcoming Senior Masters Cup at Puente Romano, BoConcept’s PlusStore which has just opened on The Golden Mile, and hot dining venues Origen Asador Argentino, Café Flore and La Famieke.

Don’t miss our profiles on Tim Burton on the eve of his new release, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and its sultry star Eva Green, who is also a principal protagonist in cult series, Penny Dreadful.

Closer to home, we have exclusive interviews with jewellery designer, Tamara Comolli and Smadar Kahana of Engel & Völkers, and we welcome Amanda Hamilton, experienced nutritionist and TV presenter, to the Marbella Club Hotel.

Further afield, we marvel at the concept of super fast travel with Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, glide in luxurious comfort in the Bentley Bentayga, visit Ibiza’s raved-about STK, and find our why Vancouver is rated as one of the World’s best cities to live in.
