Travelers heading for the sun can now get added mileage out of their horoscopes. An ascending interest in all things astrological has hit the fashion world. The Horoscope of Fashion currently underway in New York City at Lord & Taylor is an international Pandora's box of the occult, spilling out everything from pot holders (one per sign) to Emilio Pucci's brilliant new resort prints. When L&T asked designers to focus on the cosmos, they reacted in individual horoscopic fashion. In Florence, Pucci, a Scorpio, delved into his library of the ancients, emerged with prints from Babylonian signs. In Rome, Lydia de Crescenzo, a Gemini, fell back on Agrippa's 16th-century Strange Medical Gallery for flower symbols she embroidered on sundresses. And Cole of California's Margit Fellegi, a Leo, captured American cartoons that suit, for swimming, people of any sign.
