As we mentioned last week, on New Year’s Eve Mediaweek reported on rumors that Condé Nast’s Fairchild Fashion Group, which publishes Women’s Wear Daily, is working on a trade publication that will focus on the men’s wear market.
This report adds intel that the publication is set to launch in June, and it will be led by WWD‘s editor Ed Nardoza and publisher Marc Berger, the former Men’s Vogue publisher who was brought on as publisher of Footwear News, another Fairchild trade pub, in June.
Mediaweek was also unclear how the new magazine would differ from DNR, which Condé folded into WWD just over a year ago. If it turns out to be a weekly, the new pub will likely be the same as the shuttered 115-year-old trade magazine, but if it turns out to be a monthly, it will look more like Menswear, DNR‘s sister pub that also closed up shop in 2008.
