It’s common knowledge that the fashion industry is all over what’s new, hot, delicious, and buzzy when it comes to the world’s restaurants. It’s why New York City’s Indochine has stayed on the map for over 30 years; fashion folk flock to it. So why not take advantage of the industry’s discerning tastes? In a new book published by Assouline, online retail site Farfetch has curated restaurants the world over, with favorites and recommendations from the likes of Leandra Medine (the Man Repeller), Anya Ziourova, designer Jonathan Saunders, and plenty more.

Model Elettra Wiedemann (and daughter of Isabella Rossellini) plays a part in the book, too, with a recipe for her favorite breakfast.

Here’s how to make Elettra’s omelette.

3 free-range eggs (I get mine from the Union Square Greenmarket every Monday)
1 knob of butter or 1 tsp coconut oil (available at most health food stores)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Elettra’s Healthy Omelette fillings (optional): sauteed leek and rosemary/kale and cayenne pepper/mushroom and arthichoke

Preparation Method:
Crack the eggs into a bowl; beat with a fork until smooth and then season. Melt a knob of butter or heat 1 tsp of coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan. Saute the fillings, and pour the eggs into the pan when the butter or oil is piping hot. Using a wooden fork in a circular motion, move the eggs in the pan around whilst moving the pan back and forth across the heat. Allow the eggs to form a light skin, and then remove the pan from the heat. Using the side of a fork, fold the omelette in towards the middle on both sides. Tip the omelette onto a plate, and serve.

The (Solar) Power of T-Shirts

The fashion world is responsible for bestowing upon us much good. It’s indirectly (or directly) responsible for the Kate Moss coke tape, the latest cover of V Magazine, and come to think of it, our September issue. Every once in a while, the gliteratti of the fashion world unite for a supremely worthy cause. A jaunt to will reveal just cause in Joey Jalleo and Elettra Wiedemann’s (supermodel face of Lancome and daughter of Isabella Rossellini) effort to bring a solar-powered hospital to the African nation of Burundi. The Burundi Solar project aims to raise $450K by gathering six of the fashion industry’s most influential rising stars to design T-shirts for purchase on their website. Chris Benz, Giambattista Valli, Rogan, Rag & Bone, Phillip Lim and House of Diehl have designed the limited edition shirts for $60 each. T-shirts have been on sale since yesterday, so be a pal and help a nation out.
