elcome to our special luxury edition of Surrey Magazine, we hope you enjoy the social season, experiences, fine craftsmanship and wonderful events in these pages.

Luxury is all about craftsmanship, skills that have been honed over many years, if not decades, to create quality goods and services that are out of the ordinary. It is not about the price tag, it’s about the passion and care that is taken in making fine, often bespoke products that last.

Craftsmanship promotes the value in people and their skills and is the opposite of the cheap and easily discarded. A good suit, a pair of shoes or piece of jewellery were kept for a lifetime, if well made, and repaired when needed, to be treasured for the associations and memories shared. As we become more aware of the consequences of throwing so much away and the effect it is having on our planet, we are learning to restore and reimagine much loved items and to be discerning in our purchases, spending a little more on things of quality and keeping them for longer.

Surround yourself with fewer things, but always quality. Plus it makes cleaning easier!

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Leonardo da Vinci

Of course fine experiences build great memories, so to that end we have picked out the very best of the British Social Season ahead, with the Henley Regatta, Polo in the Park, the Goodwood Revival, Le Mans, The Boodles and many others. Make it your summer bucket list and attend every one!

We look at some of the latest new luxury watches to come out, each a work of art, to be treasured and passed on to the next generation. Mechanical marvels unaffected by the passage of time or the need for software updates.

Choose your favourites from the latest techno gadgets on offer and discover some fabulous jewellery creations from the worlds leading designer/makers. Admire the new Princess yacht, a fusion of classic good looks, styling and modern technology. Plus take your pick of the best polo events in Surrey and beyond. Our How To Spend It section collects some the finest things to buy when you’ve made it, focusing on action and adventure.

I take the Aston Martin Vantage out for a little luxury tour and, excuse the spoiler, find it to be one of the most engaging supercars ever. An absolute marvel of engineering, design and driving pleasure. Enjoy my latest fashion shoot, the Jetset in Hong Kong, with a stunning Agusta helicopter and Porsche 911. I also travel to St Barths for the ultimate in luxury living. An island paradise frequented by celebrities with some of the most amazing villas and beaches in the world.

We cover what’s on at your local theatres, what’s exciting at the RHS Chelsea Flower show, in depth at the Henley Music Festival and look at what makes Kylie such an enduring pop phenomenon. And if you’ve ever wondered what to wear at Royal Ascot, then read our handy guide while our property section looks at the smartest luxury homes in both the town and the country.

Our Paris beauty make up expert provides tips on the best way to look gorgeous for a black tie event or red carpet after party. Then luxuriate with us at South Lodge Hotel and Spa or dine exquisitely at Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, both superb luxury experiences right on your doorstep.

Everyone deserves a little luxury.
