Broekema joins InStyle from Harper’s Bazaar, where he served as executive accessories editor. Broekema’s tenure at the Hearst glossy began in 2011. He has also held roles at Vanity Fair and Self. Broekema starts at InStyle on Monday and he will report to fashion director Melissa Rubini.
Zajdman, who started at InStyle on Tuesday, joins the title from Marie Claire — where she had served as accessories editor since 2012. She had also held various positions at Vogue. Like Broekema, Zajdman will report to Rubini.
Broekema and Zajdman replace recent InStyle exits Meggan Crum and Danielle Prescod, respectively.
Rubini said of their hires in a statement: “As we expand print, digital and video content production within our fully integrated accessories department, Sam and Elana will be very strong additions to the team — their impeccable taste and backgrounds are ideally suited to their respective roles.”
