GLOBALLY renowned fashion journalist Suzy Menkes has been appointed international Vogue editor, and will serve as critic and reporter on all international websites - including Britain, France, Italy, China, Russia, Japan, Germany and Spain.
"It'll be great to have Suzy as part of the team," British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman said this morning. "Her experience is invaluable and I have always admired her."
Menkes has worked as a fashion critic for the International Herald Tribune (recently rebranded The International New York Times) for 25 years. Her new role will also see her take a lead role in organising an annual luxury goods industry conference, supported by Condé Nast International - details of which will be announced in the coming future.
"I am thrilled to become international Vogue editor at Condé Nast International, which has a real commitment to journalistic excellence, and to have the opportunity to write for a wider global audience through the Vogue websites," said Menkes. "I am grateful to have spent 25 years at the International Herald Tribune - a newspaper where I had unstinting support in being able to express myself freely and honestly. I feel this is the perfect time to embrace a new challenge in the digital age."
"Suzy Menkes is a unique talent, with superb judgement about fashion and keen insight into the business behind it," said Jonathan Newhouse, Condé Nast International chairman and chief executive. "She is hugely influential and respected. Her contribution will bring even greater quality and authority to the Vogue brand."

Arena Homme + has ceased publishing. Presumably.
However we did not get any official statement from the publisher.
So treat this info as a gossip just for now.

Harper’s BAZAAR Netherlands to Launch in September 2014

NEW YORK, March 26, 2014 – Hearst Magazines International and Hearst Magazines Netherlands today announced the launch of a Dutch edition of iconic fashion magazine Harper’s BAZAAR. Premiering with a September issue, followed by two additional issues in 2014, the magazine will publish 10 issues in 2015. The announcement was made by Duncan Edwards, president of Hearst Magazines International, and Luc van Os, CEO of Hearst Magazines Netherlands.

“We are very pleased to launch Harper’s BAZAAR, an iconic title which will be an important cornerstone of our luxury-oriented portfolio,” van Os said.

Hearst Magazines Netherlands publishes magazines like Quote, ELLE, Red, Esquire, Men's Health, Cosmopolitan and many more. Hearst Netherlands was founded in 2011, after acquisition of Hachette Filipacchi Media Netherlands by Hearst Magazines International.

“Launching Harper’s BAZAAR enriches our portfolio with yet another powerful global brand,” said Marscha Krouwel, publisher of Hearst Magazines women’s titles in The Netherlands. “I am very proud to bring the magazine—and a true 360° fashion/luxury platform—to the Dutch market.”

Harper’s BAZAAR is a visual muse, an unrivaled source of ownable style and an essential resource for women who are the first to buy the best, from casual to couture. With insight and imagination, Harper’s BAZAAR showcases the work of world-class designers and photographers and the most talked about pop culture, political and celebrity icons of the day. With BAZAAR Netherlands, the brand will include 30 editions in 19 languages distributed in 46 countries around the world, plus specials such as Harper’s BAZAAR Art, Harper’s BAZAAR Interiors and Harper’s BAZAAR Jewelry.

Vogue’s Kardashian & Kanye issue selling well despite haters

Critics of Vogue’s April issue, including Sarah Michelle Gellar, haven’t hurt sales.
Media sources forecast Vogue’s controversial issue with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on its cover is on track to sell 300,000 to 400,000 copies, putting it on par with top-selling issues with Beyoncé and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Beyoncé’s March 2013 cover sold about 355,000 copies, while Obama’s the next month sold just under 300,000.
A Vogue rep said, “[We] never comment on sales figures.”

I'm so excited because i like Suzanne Koller so much

Quote:
AT YOUR SERVICE: Beefing up her fashion staff at French Vogue, editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt has tapped stylist Suzanne Koller as fashion director. Koller joins the Condé Nast France title from Self Service magazine, and her first work is to appear in the August issue, Alt told WWD.

Koller fills a seat left vacant when Alt, French Vogue’s longtime fashion director, moved to top of the masthead in 2011.

“We are a small team. It’s a good fit, and I needed someone close to me,” Alt said. “She’s really the right person. I really appreciate her work.”

Alt said she would also continue to style shoots alongside Koller, one of the founders of Self Service in 1995, who would “be full-time French Vogue very soon.”

From WWD.

Quote:
Joe Zee is leaving Elle magazine, where he spent seven years as creative director, for Yahoo. The news follows weeks of speculation that the Internet giant had poached one of Elle's marquee editors.



At Yahoo, Zee will serve as editor in chief and executive creative officer of Yahoo fashion, as well as editor at large of its beauty site, which will be helmed by Bobbi Brown. He will remain at Elle until the end of May, before he embarks on his new job, which will have him splitting his time between New York and Los Angeles. Zee's successor at Elle has not been named.

For Zee, who has arguablly been the most prominent face of Elle, the new job at Yahoo is a fairly expansive role that will give him the freedom to develop the content not only for the Internet giant's digital fashion magazine, but also the power to execute events for the site and create unscripted programming, he told WWD.

"It probably is a little bit of a head scratcher coming out of the world of fashion," Zee said of the job move. "But I'm sitting with Marissa Mayer [Yahoo president, director and chief executive officer] and she said, 'Consider this your playground.'"

The power of that was not lost on Zee, who has stretched his own brand beyond the pages of Elle in his time there. He is an executive producer and host of Sundance TV's series "Revealing" and "All on the Line with Joe Zee." He also sells and designs clothing under the label "Styled By Joe Zee" on QVC. While those projects are ongoing, Zee's new job will give him the freedon to call the shots.

"I loved my job at Elle and it took a lot for me to leave," he said, explaining that when he was first approached by Yahoo in early March, during Academy Awards season, he wasn't convinced.
But Zee sat down with Mayer and Yahoo chief marketing officer Kathy Savitt to discuss the opportunity, and he soon realized that they were offering him the chance to "speak to a really big audience" and he could do it "in a really chic way." Yahoo has more than 700 million users a month.

The opportunity is part of a broader strategy for Yahoo, which is relaunching its online verticals or magazines on topics such as travel, food, technology, news, entertainment, fashion and beauty.

For Mayer, who grabbed the top job at Yahoo in 2012, the revamp is a way for the company to jump start its business and relevance in the face of faster growing rivals such as Google and Facebook. Recent big name hires have included Brown for Beauty, ex-Page Six editor Paula Froelich for Travel, former Vulture editorial director Josh Wolk for Entertainment and New York Times alums David Pogue for Tech and Matt Bai for Yahoo News. Katie Couric also joined Yahoo as global anchor earlier this year.

Zee is the latest major defection from the "traditional media," but after 25 years working in magazines, the editor was ready to stretch his brand even further.

"I certainly never shied away from innovation or anything new," he said. "I can build a staff, I can build something. I think the great thing is, I will be able to conceive, develop and launch this incredible magazine...and do events and video."

His reach will extend to beauty as well, where he will contribute to the beauty vertical and work with Brown and her team on coverage.

Despite his enthusiasm, the question remains whether Yahoo will be able to compete against already well-established fashion sites and print magazines.

Asked to address that, Zee didn't skip a beat.

"I think the tide has shifted. Good content is king. People will come to you if you create good content. The perfect example of that is Netflix," he said pointing to the site's history as a video rental service. "Today they are winning Emmys."
