NOT STANDING ALONE: Clearly the advertising cutbacks by the fashion and luxury goods sector have hit T: The New York Times Style magazine. The women’s summer issue of T will appear in a special 24-page “bonus section” of the New York Times Magazine on Sunday rather than as a stand-alone issue. It will begin on page 49, with a cover featuring Diane Kruger, shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. Inside the Cannes-themed issue, Quentin Tarantino (wearing women’s heels) is featured in a Q&A with Lynn Hirschberg, Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar is profiled, and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot seven actors who emerged as stars after appearing in films at the Cannes International Film Festival, including Uma Thurman, Vanessa Redgrave, Maggie Cheung and Björk. “We decided to do an issue about Cannes because it’s one of the biggest events in contemporary culture,” said T editor in chief Stefano Tonchi. “It brings fashion, movies and luxury together. I mean, whatever is left of luxury at the moment.”
And speaking of the New York Times Co., a spokeswoman confirmed a Reuters report Tuesday evening that there is a tentative agreement with the Newspaper Guild of New York to cut union worker pay at the Times by 5 percent, which would save the company $4.5 million. Earlier this month, nonunion members were also affected by pay cuts.
