Condé Nast Confirms Vogue Paris Name Change

The influential French edition of the fashion bible will now be known as Vogue France, wrote head of editorial content Eugénie Trochu in a message published on the publication’s website. The name change was first reported by Le Figaro last week, which detailed an ideological shift underway at the magazine as part of the publisher’s new global consolidation plan. The magazine’s editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt exited the title this summer and was replaced by Trochu.

Under Condé Nast’s new streamlined approach, British Vogue editor and European editorial director Edward Enninful oversees Vogue France, and all editors report into global editorial director Anna Wintour in New York. Vogue Paris celebrated its 100 year anniversary this year (delayed from 2020 because of the pandemic) with an exhibit of its archives at the Palais Galliera.
