Plus: the best new chefs, and those trends that should go the way of the dodo. By Adam Platt

The Spring Fashion Issue

People are often shocked to learn that the average runway show lasts eleven minutes. All that preparation and then ...whoosh. But more than ever, things move fast in the style world: Our cover subject, Lupita Nyong’o, went from unknown to international icon in nine months, and Leandra Medine tumbled from college into fashion’s big leagues because of her refreshing belief that fashion and feminism need not contradict each other. Elsewhere we take a look at Abercrombie & Fitch’s precipitous fall from beefcake grace; a new, earnest attempt to save the world through luxury goods; and six months in the life of one especially beautiful Chloé dress—just one of the season’s offerings we’re highlighting. Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari also stage a surrealist portfolio, and there’s our rundown of the newest trends: disco dresses, sporty sandals, and Pop Art prints. Here today, who knows about tomorrow.
