Clothing and/or fashion is the theme for this issue because it was a subject I was reading about and thinking about myself....Hopefully this issue offers some new perspectives on clothing and/or fashion and offers new options for you to try on.

“We have always liked fashion for what it is--a seductive surface. Fashion magazines in general like to tell people, “this is cool, this is new, look at this.” New fashion magazines try to launch a new wave of cool. They are very fast. We are slow, slowing things down and getting lost in them. We are stuck on simple questions, like “What is a fashion magazine?” “What do they do everyday at Vogue?” When we think of a Fall Collection, we think of leaves on trees turning orange and red, of pumpkins and apples. When we think of fashion we think of an atom smasher the size of Texas, and the option of wearing smashed atoms to school, the office, a date, etc.”
