A sign from the Times

It's been over one week since the 228-page current issue of Fashions of the
Times was released in New York, and aren't the compliments coming in thick
and fast! (Which hardly comes as a surprise considering the innovative idea
behind the issue.) Amy Spindler, the iconoclastic editor of the publication,
enlisted a handful of her favorite photojournalists from across the globe to
photograph "an iconic person in an iconic location." The result is a world-
class first, as every destination from the river Nile to the Crystal Harmony

luxury liner pops up in its pages, along with an exciting array of outfits.
Cathy Horyn's perception of "Couture Odyssey," throughout which she is
granted the experience of investing in a couture suit, also takes the cake,
as was predicted from everyone (including us) long before the feature piece
even went to print. Moving on from the last cover theme, which saw model
Annie Morton in a Gena Rowlands reenactment from the John Cassavetes film "A
Woman Under the Influence," Alek Wek plays the part riding a motorcycle
dressed in a Viktor & Rolf stars and stripes outfit (from the label's new
ready-to-wear collection). Did somebody say Easy Rider?

Riding-high Eisner

Apart from the acclaim Lisa Eisner is currently being rewarded with for her
contribution to the current Fashions of the Times, the woman who single
handedly ushered Rodeo Chic onto the Paris fashion scene is yet again on the
tips of the lips of grapevine devotees around the world. Joining Eisner at

the core of conversations is Eve MacSweeney (UK Vogue's savior in the
feature stakes of September's edition), who visits the publisher/artist at
her Bel Air Canyon home in L.A. for the magazine. Along with commentary from
the Wyoming native, Tom Ford and Isaac Mizrahi give their opinion on the
mother of two, and MacSweeney documents just the right amount of revelations
from Eisner, whose savvy knack for embracing her persona guarantees to
inspire many a reader. Favored by Fashion Net is the following quote from
Eisner: "One of my favorite games is to drive to Palm Springs on a Friday,
go thrift shopping and only wear the stuff I find there that weekend." Put
simply, if ever you have felt that oh-so-familiar pang between exiting your
bedroom and heading out the front door dressed in a fabulous flea-market
find, then by all means find yourself a copy of this profile for some
instant gratification.
