European Editorial Director & Editor-in-Chief, Vanity Fair & Vanity Fair Italia

What is the BoF 500?

The BoF 500 is the definitive professional index of the people shaping the $2.4 trillion fashion industry, hand-selected by the editors of The Business of Fashion, based on hundreds of nominations received from current BoF 500 members, extensive data analysis and research.


As of December 2020, Simone Marchetti is Vanity Fair's European editorial director and Vanity Fair Italia's editor-in-chief. Joining the publication from Italian newspaper La Repubblica, where he was fashion editor, Marchetti replaced Daniela Hamaui. 

Never far from the front row at all the major shows, Marchetti’s intelligent fashion reporting has cemented the editor as an authority on the industry. An Italian street style icon, Marchetti is photographed wherever he goes. His distinct and discerning sense of style — fusing bright, bold and colourful prints with classic tailoring — has ensured he is frequently featured on major style blogs such as The Sartorialist and Jak & Jil.

Both his prose and pose ensure that he stands out in even the most high profile fashion crowd. “Simone is one of the smartest young editors of the industry, with sharp eye for aesthetic,” Kering chief executive Marco Bizzari told BoF.

In December 2020, Marchetti was appointed European editorial director where he oversees the European editions of Vanity Fair in France, Spain and Italy.
