Designer etailer Net-a-Porter has made further appointments to the new management team for its soon to be launched menswear site, Mr Porter.
Jodie Harrison, currently executive style and grooming editor for GQ, has been appointed as editor the standalone website’s weekly magazine; while Dan May, currently executive fashion director for 10 Magazine, will join as style director, and will be responsible for styling and commissioning the fashion pages. Both will report to Mr Porter editor-in-chief Jeremy Langmead, who joined the site last month.
“The founding principle of Net-a-Porter was and is to create the balance between content and commerce and this will also be instrumental in the Mr Porter business,” said Langmead. He said that both May and Harrison would help to “define the style and direction” of the site’s editorial offering.
Mr Porter, which is due to launch in January, is recruiting globally across all categories. Harrison will join the site on November 29 and May will take over his new role on January 3.
Mr Porter will offer a range of menswear from global designer labels and niche specialist brands alongside editorial and style advice.
