Did you know that Style.com had a print counterpart? Probably not. And that’s one reason why Condé Nast has decided to fold Style.com/Print just two years after launching it.
From the beginning, Style.com/Print seemed doomed. The name was terrible and the content was even worse; often articles that appeared on Style.com were duplicated in Style.com/Print. There really was no reason for anyone to buy the magazine. In the end, Condé wisely decided to shut the operation down. With a positive spin, of course.
“Since the relaunch [of Style.com] in early September, the site continues to exceed growth expectations,” a Condé spokesperson told The New York Post. “To continue that momentum, we’ve made the decision to focus 100% of our efforts on our core digital business.”
Rest in peace Style.com/Print. We hardly knew ye.
