The designers profiled range from Gabriel "Coco" Chanel to the unconventional Todd Oldham, but highly successful retailers (e.g., Banana Republic) that have managed to make an impact on the fashion world are also covered.

The back cover shows a 1998 natural vintage recycled linen evening dress by Olivier Theyskens, a young designer in his twenties. …

Fashion is anthropomorphic. Dress, surrounding the body, is determined by the shape it envelops. But the body is also defined by fashion in a manner that mingles the determinate form of physiology with the variable values and needs of culture. Recently, anthropology of the body has been subject matter for visual artists and theoreticians alike…

This disc of music by Arvo Pärt offers a generous representative sampling of his orchestral and chamber works from early in his holy minimalist (or, as he preferred, tintinnabuli) phase, mostly from the late 1970s but some as late as 1990. The pieces include some of his most popular works, notably Fratres (which exists in nearly a dozen incarnations), Spiegel in Spiegel (of which there are nearly half as many versions), Summa, and Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten.
