The Times today announced that Kate Reardon, former editor of Tatler, has been appointed editor-in-chief of LUXX, The Times’s glossy magazine focused on ‘the best of everything’.
Reardon takes over from Jeremy Langmead, who continues as editor-at-large alongside his role at MR PORTER, having led a successful relaunch of LUXX in 2016.
With a unique combination of high spending power and unrivalled scale, The Times’s well-informed, influential and discerning audience is the ideal target for leading luxury brands. The Times has the highest print circulation of any daily quality newspaper, according to the ABC December 2017 survey, and reaches more households earning £150,000 than any other newspaper.
LUXX is an aspirational and entertaining look at the good things in life. It’s about intelligent luxury: craftsmanship, good design, purpose, giving, and giving back. It is published as a glossy magazine and specialist supplements throughout the year.
Emma Tucker, Deputy Editor of The Times, said: “Kate Reardon is one of the most talented and respected luxury magazine editors in the business. She will bring her wealth of knowledge and experience from many years at Conde Nast to the LUXX brand and to our expanding affluent, metropolitan readership.”
Kate Reardon said: “I am thrilled to be joining LUXX and the exceptional team at The Times. Jeremy Langmead has created the most wonderful magazine and I’m delighted to be following in his esteemed footsteps.”
Dominic Carter, Chief Commercial Officer, News UK, said: “LUXX has, since its relaunch in December 2016, delighted readers and the luxury advertising market – so much so we’re publishing an additional issue this year. It continues to offer advertisers a unique opportunity to reach our engaged, affluent audience and this, combined with Kate’s appointment as Editor and Jeremy’s move to an Editor-at-Large role, demonstrates our commitment to continuously evolve this luxury proposition.”
The next edition of LUXX is published this Saturday (10 March) in The Times. The 2018 schedule is: 19 May 8 September 3 November (additional issue) 1 December.
