Time Inc. UK announces today the closure of Look. The issue on sale from 29 May will be the final edition of the weekly magazine.
Justine Southall, Time Inc. UK’s managing director, fashion and beauty, says: “When Look launched in 2007, it was a publishing phenomenon and sold more than 300,000 copies a week at its peak. But Look’s audience behaves very differently today. They’re consuming media via screens and accessing numerous digital sources for fashion and celebrity content. Facing these circumstances and a continuing pressure on sales, we have taken the difficult decision to close the brand.
“We will now be focusing even greater efforts and activity on our iconic Marie Claire brand, as we celebrate its very special 30th birthday and new WomanKind initiative championing women and their power to change the world together.”
Time Inc. UK is a member of FIPP.
