Efforts to make over Harper’s Bazaar have been picking up in recent months, including plans to decrease the magazine’s frequency (it’s now published ten times a year) and increase its physical size. Glenda Bailey’s latest move is hiring former British Vogue creative director Robin Derrick to assist with a creative overhaul, to be unveiled in the magazine’s March issue. Derrick resigned from British Vogue back in June after serving as creative director for over a decade; he’ll work alongside Bazaar’s current creative director Stephen Gan. Bailey calls the magazine’s new look a “refresh” that comes ten years into her tenure as editor-in-chief. There are surely lots of fingers crossed in the Hearst building that Derrick’s addition will help jump-start the publication’s flagging ad sales.
