After cutting loose the editors-in-chief at most of Vogue’s regional editions worldwide, publisher Condé Nast is tapping younger editors from within the magazine’s ranks to produce its localised content.
Vogue Paris’ new head of editorial content will be Eugenie Trochu, Condé Nast said in a statement Monday. Trochu previously served as fashion editor of Vogue.fr, before she was named market editor for the title this spring ahead of her latest promotion.
At Vogue Italia, the new role will go to Francesca Ragazzi, the magazine’s former fashion market director, Condé Nast said. Both editors will work under Vogue’s European editorial director (and British Vogue editor-in-chief) Edward Enninful.
While Condé Nast has been shrinking its roster of top-paid editors and streamlining its operations for years, the pace of cuts has accelerated since the pandemic, which squeezed paper circulation and saw advertising budgets for glossy publications slashed.
A cost-saving shift to producing more global content, with features translated and adapted for various editions worldwide, has seen the publisher part ways with long-time fashion heavyweights, including editors-in-chief Angelica Cheung, Emmanuelle Alt and Emanuele Farneti.
Publisher Condé Nast continues to cut costs and streamline operations, as its US-based leadership consolidates its power after a global merger.
