editor’s letter

The day we set off to the Samburu village the smell of rain is in the air. A freshness that borders on a chill, the musky shock of warm ground slapped awake. The road, the only road, is in a state, full of rocks and troughs that jolt us around. Everyone is quiet, looking out over the landscape, at the Earth, which seems like nothing more at this moment than a limited tablet of land, surrounded by a vast circumference of sky more liquid than air, clouds tumbling in waterfalls not just above but below the horizon. A jackal trots in front of us. An ostrich shakes her feathers to reveal the rude, plucked pinkness of her bulk. And then, an hour or so later, among the fever of acacia bushes,…

Chloë Sevigny Globetrotter (p148) ‘My mother was from Philadelphia, and she would always take me to historical sites near there: battlefields, the Liberty Bell and the Betsy Ross flag. I love her for thinking that was important, and instilling history in me at such a young age.’ Chloë has starred in films and TV hits including ‘Big Love’ and ‘Broken Flowers’ Daphne Guinness Bed-hopper (p50) ‘Since my childhood summers, Cadaqués in Spain has always been my favourite destination. We have a house with a chapel near the top of the mountain that overlooks the village. We would take day trips on old fishing boats around the rocky coastline.’ Fashion muse and art collector Daphne once planned to be an opera singer Squire Fox Cape Cod (p112) ‘Last year we all decamped to a friend’s house…

THE WELLBEING RETREAT Etosoto is less like a hotel, more like a clubhouse for the curious. This white-on-rattan hideaway steps from the sea on Formentera was opened quietly last year by French brothers Julien and Grégory Labrousse. It’s a hub of learning: organic farming and slow-food workshops, kundalini yoga with visiting teachers, fasting weeks for grown-ups, and film and music clubs in half term and spring holidays for children. An enriching antidote to the usual beach-break getaway. THE CUTTING-EDGE GALLERY Cirque du Soleil co-founder Guy Laliberté is championing Ibiza’s contemporary scene with Art Projects Ibiza. Set up just north of Talamanca, it’s an exhibition space where he can share his own impressive collection as well as inviting boundarypushing artists to collaborate on site-specific projects. Recent alumni have included Jenny Holzer, Neïl Beloufa,…

boom-boom town

‘I can make your life just a little better,’ raps Falz, a musician who cuts across the diversity of Lagos, shining a spotlight on the city’s complex characters. A walk around the West African metropolis will inevitably be soundtracked by his trademark verses, booming from a beaten car stereo, supermarket PA or beer parlour. That line, from last year’s single ‘La Fête’, is in one of four languages he can switch between. From English rhymes and French punchlines, he reverts to his native cadences, the unmistakable flow of Nigerian Pidgin and Yoruba. ‘Lingo is the most important thing,’ he explains. ‘Wanting to share that more would be wanting the world to see more about my culture – to see how rich the Yoruba traditions are.’ Falz knows where’s he’s from…

While beach-loving travellers have been drawn to Panama’s tropical Caribbean spots such as Bocas del Toro and the San Blas islands for some time, its Pacific side remains less visited. A few hours west of Panama City, the Azuero Peninsula bulges out into the ocean. At its tip is Playa Venao, which is now becoming the country’s most talked about surf town with brightly painted hostels and wave-riding camps run by pros, including Magnum Martinez, along its horseshoe bay. At the western end, Panga is one of the country’s most irresistible restaurants, and not just because of its remote location. Opened by Andrés Morataya, previously a personal chef to Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein, it has an unfussy menu of terrifically fresh, local produce: home-grown cacao fruit; spider crabs the fishermen…

sneaky blinders

What’s this about? The city’s latest pastry craze, Baker Doe. ‘Latest’ pastry craze? Where have you been? Pastries are on fleek. See: the cronut, cakepops and San Francisco’s very own cruffin. Gosh, modern life is so complex. This person cannot spell dough, though. No, not ‘dough’. Doe, like John Doe. Meaning: unidentified person. D’oh. But why? Because the duo behind Baker Doe’s colourful croissants are keeping their identities secret. Two people, eh? What are they hiding? Nothing, really. The French half is an ex-bar owner and graffiti artist; the other is from Hong Kong and worked as a pastry chef at various SF restaurants. I smell a marketing ploy! Let me guess, you have to queue three hours for one of their croissants? Refreshingly, no. Baker Doe posts its menu to Facebook every Friday, and…
