Net-a-Porter Hires Yeomans as Editor-in-Chief
March 16th, 2012 @ 12:02 AM - Paris
Etailer Net-a-Porter has hired Lucy Yeomans as its new “editor-in-chief,” in a latest example of the editor of a prestigious fashion magazine joining the editorial mouth-piece of a commercial operation.
Yeomans is leaving her job as editor-in-chief of UK Harper's Bazaar – a prestigious position she has held for a decade – to become editor-in-chief of Net-a-Porter.com, the online magazine of the rapidly going Internet fashion retailer.
"The media landscape is evolving radically and Net-a-Porter has a global readership of over 3.5 million women who demand the very best edit of luxury fashion worldwide. Net-a-Porter has redefined the way women read about and consume fashion. I am looking forward to working with some of the very best talent in the industry and to creating truly inspiring content," explained Yeomans in a release on Thursday, March 15.
Nonetheless, the move comes as something of a surprise, as it amounts to a respected editor and journalist quitting a stylish independent magazine, after a successful stint at the helm, to, in effect, manage what is essential an advertorial tool of a retail business.
In her new job, Yeomans will report to the etailer's recently appointed managing director Alison Loehnis. Yeomans' arrival follows two years after Jeremy Langmead left another Hearst-owned magazine, men's title Esquire, back in 2010 to edit Net-a-Porter.com's male edition, Mr Porter.
“I am inspired to be working with such incredible senior talent at Net-a-Porter. I am personally very excited about this appointment, having worked with Lucy during our time together at Tatler and known her for many years as well as professionally supporting Harper's Bazaar,” added the etailer's founder and chief executive Natalie Massenet, a former market editor at several titles in the Conde Nast magazine empire.
Massenet sold control of the business back in April 2010, when Swiss-based luxury giant Richemont bought complete control of Net-a-Porter, in a deal that valued the fashion Internet retailer at 350 million pounds, or $535 million at then exchange rates.
