esign, you can’t escape it. Look around you and chances are unless you’re on some remote island that you’re surrounded by objects that have been created to fulfil a purpose by human hands. With the London Design Festival, London Fashion Week, Vodafone London Fashion Weekend as well as Open House London on our doorstep this month there’s never been a better time to consider why the objects, buildings and vehicles that we use everyday look and function the way they do.

We also take a look at this month’s Only Watch charity auction that takes place every two years in Monaco. This year 34 watch brands have donated especially designed, one-off pieces to help raise money for research into Muscular Dystrophy. These astonishing watches are oneof-a-kind and instant collectors items.

We also appreciated the design of Aston Martin’s £200,000 V12 carbon fibre flagship, the Vanquish, as we put it through its paces. After living with it for a week it’s easy to see why 007 is back behind the wheel of an Aston.
