As you may know, The New York Times has been publishing an occasional magazine called T for several years now. Each magazine has a separate focus, such as travel, men’s style, women’s style and home. But the magazine was always a bit hard to navigate and there was no set schedule as to when it would come out.All that changed last fall with the arrival of Deborah Needleman, late of Domino and WSJ Magazine. T Magazine, re-imagined and revitalized, debuted this weekend with an exclusive interview with Lee Radziwill conducted by English interior decorator, Nicky Haslam. It is a fascinating piece with loads of terrific images of her long life. I am of two minds about the way she’s looking these days. In some images, she’s just beautiful, but in others, like the magazine’s cover image, I think it looks like she’s had too much work done.
Many of Needleman’s stable of writers from both Domino and WSJ Magazine have moved to T Magazine with her, including Rita Konig and Sara Ruffin Costello. Both of these writers have excellent articles in this premiere issue. Rita writes about interior designer Rose Uniacke’s London home, which done in spare elegance.I’d murder for a bathroom like this!
Sara Ruffin Costello writes about the Mexican town of Mérida, a far cry from Cozumel or San Miguel de Allende, and up until this magazine was published, has been pretty much undiscovered by tourists.Sara did the writing for this piece and her husband, Paul Costello, did the photography.
This issue of T Magazine topped out at more than 200 pages, and is scheduled to be published 15 times a year, which gives us all something to look forward to! You can read the entire magazine here.
