Harper’s Bazaar Italy Launches Print Edition

The Italian edition of Harper’s Bazaar, which is published by Hearst Magazines International, will begin publishing a print edition. Daria Veledeeva, who previously served as the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar Russia for 13 years, was named editor-in-chief. (Veledeeva left her post at Harper’s Bazaar Russia earlier this year after Hearst ended its partnerships with its Russian publishing partners in March in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.)

Harper’s Bazaar Italy first launched as a digital-only publication in the fall of 2020. Its initial print edition will be the November 2022 issue. Six issues will be published in 2023 and 10 issues are planned for 2024. Presently, there are 29 editions of Harper’s Bazaar published globally.

The move bucks industry trends, which has seen more and more publications move away from publishing print editions — though some publications maintain there’s still value to be found in print. In the past few years, InStyle, the American edition of Marie Claire (which was owned by Hearst until 2021), Glamour, O: The Oprah Magazine (another Hearst property) and Vice Media’s Garage magazine have all ceased publication in print.
