Harper's Bazaar, the monthly magazine that tells the dream and celebrates beauty in all its forms, will debut its print edition in Italy in November 2023.
Already present since 2020 in our country in a digital version, directed by Massimo Russo, it will also return in a printed version with 6 issues to be published in 2023 and 10 issues planned for 2024.
The 5 December issue is not a real debut for Italy, but it is a great return. Currently, 29 editions of Harper’s Bazaar are published around the world. In Italy, the magazine made it first appearance in January 1968 first as a bimonthly and then a monthly edition, and was immediately joined by a men's title (first called Derby and then Harper’s Bazaar Men).
The magazine, initially published under licence by Cesare E. Beltrami's Ediderby, was then conducted at length, through Edizioni SYDS, by Giuseppe della Schiava from 1990 to 1998 also President of the Italian Chamber of Fashion.
Publication then ceased in 1997 with the closing of the publishing house after almost 30 years of uninterrupted presence on the Italian market. Among the many collaborators of that long adventure, the art director Bob Krieger and the fashion editor Nando Miglio cannot but be remembered.
Daria Valedeeva, an international figure who is already part of the fashion world and already part of the group will be in charge of the new content on the entire Harper's Bazaar platform. In order to emphasise Italian style, craftsmanship and culture and to foster the synthesis between local and global identity, Veledeeva will be flanked by a deputy executive director: Adriana Di Lello, who will also continue to hold her position of deputy director of Elle.
Photography and illustration have been the founding elements of the magazine, which over the decades has collaborated with all the world's greatest photographers. Among the many, we recall Helmut Newton, Herbert List, Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Robert Frank, Man Ray, Steven Meisel, Lisette Model, Oliviero Toscani, Inez van Lamsweerde, Hendrik Kerstens, Herb Ritts, Peter Lindberg, to name but a few of the many artists who have contributed to changing the history of costume through its pages. Masters such as Jean Cocteau, Raoul Dufy, Marc Chagall, Man Ray, Cassandre, Salvador Dalí and Giorgio de Chirico have been called upon to illustrate the pages of Harper's Bazaar over the decades.
