Bollen takes over at Interview next month. According to Fashion Week Daily:

At Interview, Bollen will report to Brant Publications co-editorial directors [Glenn] O’Brien and Fabien Baron. “It was a difficult decision to leave a place as creative and editorially boundless as V, which has served as my home for the past eight years,” said Bollen. “Nevertheless, I’m incredibly excited to be joining Interview and adding my name to a team as gifted as this one. The Interview legacy is clearly inimitable, but I’m also looking forward to leading it in new cultural directions. I think it’s going to be a very happy marriage.”

Today Interview owner Brant Publications also announced its appointment of Alan Katz as group publisher. The veteran of Conde Nast (Vanity Fair and Cargo) and New York magazine will oversee Art in America and The Magazine Antiques as well as Interview.
