GLAMOUR NO MORE: The world of Italian glossy publishing is saying goodbye to another fashion magazine.
Condé Nast Italy has decided to discontinue the publication of monthly title Glamour and the magazine’s digital activities. The December/January issue, out on Dec. 3, will be the last to hit newsstands.
“Condé Nast’s main goal is to innovate and think ahead. My main concern now is to create products able to accompany our public in the future,” Condé Nast Italy chief executive officer Fedele Usai said in a statement, adding that the company’s investments are currently focused on technology innovation and the development of efficient digital platforms. “In this scenario, we have to take hard decisions, including closing a storied title like Glamour, which has always talked to an audience that, now and even more in the future, accesses contents in very different ways than in the past.”
