September is the New Year for fashion: the new collections for winter have arrived in the shops and, given the heat, it’s difficult to imagine that autumn is almost upon us. We showcase our favourites from the leading fashion designers (page 12) and give you some ideas where to find fabulous pieces for your winter wardrobe locally, in Autumn Opulence, on page 98.
This is also the month of one of the cultural highlights – Nit de l’Art on the 20th of September. The popularity of this event in Palma is growing yearly and, if you are on the island, do not miss what is going to be a night to remember.
Staying in the capital, we interviewed the Mayor of Palma, Mateo Isern (page 56); he explains his initiatives to create employment and his focus on making the city a 365-day tourist attraction.
The theme of culture is carried through our guide of the most interesting museums on the island (page 62) and we meet local photographic artist Miquel Salom (page 68) and American artist Barbara Weil (page 78) – whose studio in Port Andratx was designed by world-famous architect Daniel Libeskind.
“Culture is the process by which a person becomes all that they were created capable of being” (Thomas Carlyle); realizing that it is not too late to find the greatness inside you, makes reading the Last Word on page 140 interesting.
