Welcome to September, one of the nicest months of the year in Marbella, with endearing sunshine, temperatures that are more supportable, and room to move. To celebrate it, come with us on a joyous journey, courtesy of essential Magazine.

As is our wont, this issue has something for everyone, although it specifically focuses on architecture and design.

Take a look inside the confines of a brand new villa within the grounds of The Marbella Club, exemplifying modern interiors, marvel at a range of projects styled by Ambience Home Design, and witness the transformation of a villa at Las Brisas Golf, completed by Blackshaw Interior Design.

We also preview this month’s London Design Festival, feature sartorial fashion from Monsoon and vintage femininity by Laura Ashley.

There’s a new supercar that eclipses all others – the Bugatti Chiron – find out how in this month’s motoring column; read about making payments via your mobile; and consider staying at some of the top hotels across the globe, as selected by TripAdvisor.

We review the phenomena of The Hobbit, published 80 years ago this month and still popular with young and old alike, Cillian Murphy, whose star is definitively on the rise, and the critically acclaimed Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

Finally, after all this, it’s time to pause for some much-needed sustenance and we suggest the delightful locations of Bono Beach beside the sea or La Tapa in Marbella’s Old Town, both of which will certainly provide experiences you will want to repeat.
