Harper’s Bazaar Gears Up for Revamp

After a decade as editor in chief, Glenda Bailey is plotting big changes for the magazine.

A NEW HARPER’S LOOK BY SPRING: After a decade as editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Glenda Bailey is plotting big changes for the magazine and WWD has learned she’s hired Robin Derrick of Spring Studios to help her make them. Derrick, who was creative director of British Vogue for 10 years until last June, will also work with Bazaar’s creative director Stephen Gan on a revamp that will be revealed in the March issue. As WWD reported, the title is also planning to increase the trim size and upgrade its paper and cover stock, along with reducing frequency to 10 times a year.

“After 10 years, it’s time to refresh — Stephen and I are looking forward to evolving Bazaar’s design for the next decade and we are excited to be collaborating with Robin,” Bailey said.

A spokeswoman said Spring Studios has just been retained, so it’s too early to comment on pending changes.
