>> Sally Singer rides her bicycle to work every day, orders weekly cruelty-free organic food delivery from an upstate New York farm, and is currently reworking the New York Times's T magazine as its new editor-in-chief. For the first time since her appointment, Singer speaks about her vision for the magazine, in conversation with Paper's Kim Hastreiter: "I hope that there will be actual stories to read in it, because the Times is first and foremost a paper of great reporting. And it has to be relevant and honest and interesting. There also have to be real narratives and a sense of continuity between the world of the paper and the world in which the T images exist."
Singer continues: "To me, the most exquisite fashion credit I can remember in my lifetime was the day of [President Obama's] inauguration, when Michelle walked the parade route in that greenish-yellow Isabel Toledo dress. Because this was a real moment in which fashion, and quite directional fashion, played a role. When I think about the project of T and the Times, I think about that. I think about fashion outside of the studio and fashion that lives on the street. It doesn't mean you're going to repeat that moment, but I do think there's a way in which you can make lifestyle choices seem pertinent to the way we experience the world, and you can draw those connections in a magazine."
