The Last Month of Domino

March 18, 2009

I cozied up with Lucy and the last issue of Domino on Sunday afternoon. I don’t have a subscription. Regardless, I’m still sad to see it go.

Here’s a good article from the New York Times written by Penelope Green that came out in early February describing the response to the news that Domino was closing. It also gives an interesting outlook about a new generation of women and their interests:

Did Domino’s demise augur the crumbling of a larger, cultural movement, characterized by a girlish and fizzy optimism and an appetite for Jonathan Adler ceramics and Parsons tables from West Elm, and peopled by thousands of crafty, handy young women — like Carrie Bradshaw but cooler, with fewer shoes, better values and a mortgage?

    like Carrie Bradshaw but cooler

    That’s like saying, “like a turd, but better-smelling.” Carrie Bradshaw is not remotely cool.
