The second issue of (the new physical magazine from the editors of is already printed, just 20 days after the end of the fall fashion season, and headed to newsstands next week. While it's a bit thinner than the first issue, it's more readable, partly thanks to a cleaner font used for the articles, and partly because it was an awfully newsy season, what with the departures of Stefano Pilati at YSL and Raf Simons at Jil Sander.

With such a speedy journey from event to print, the merits of a magazine coming from a Web-based fashion site are a little clearer in this issue, which includes behind-the-scenes profiles of Joseph Altuzarra, who had a hit show in New York; J.W. Anderson of London and Alber Elbaz of Lanvin in Paris. If these were planned by the editors in advance, they were smart choices. There's also a funny exchange between Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, who have collaborated on a new book on the Chanel jacket. Tim Blanks asks Mr. Lagerfeld and Ms. Roitfeld about their first memories of seeing a woman wearing a Chanel jacket, eliciting a response that would certainly have irritated Oleg Cassini, if he were still alive.

"I went from school with a friend of my parents to see the Chanel show that was such a flop in 1954," Mr. Lagerfeld says. "People hated it. I thought it was very chic because it had the sort of avant-garde touch I had seen in old photos."

Ms. Roitfeld, asked the same question, says, "Not in '54 because I was just born. The first Chanel jacket that I saw - that I knew was Chanel - was on TV. It was on Mrs. Kennedy - the pink one."

Mr. Lagerfeld adds: "In 1963. It was a fake, a line-by-line copy by Cassini. She did have real Chanels [but] her sister ordered them. We have all the proof."
