Luxury online shopping destination Net-A-Porter will launch a newsstand publication within the next 12 months.
Speaking at a conference last week, CEO Mark Sebba revealed the news, saying: "It isn't a secret that Net-a-Porter will be publishing a major fashion magazine within the next 12 months or so", noting that the company still sees print as important.
The site already has a weekly digital magazine which is viewable online and through their iPad app. Last year it ventured into print for the first time when a limited number of copies of its spring/summer 2011 magazine, featuring Alexa Chung on the cover, was sent out to corporate clients.
Although Sebba reportedly let that cat out of the bag too soon, industry sources have confirmed to WWD that a magazine is indeed in the works, although months away from any official plans being actioned.
