At the center of fashion for over twenty-five years, stylist/fashion editor/creative director Edward Enninful—a font of energy and wisdom on both sides of the Atlantic (i-D, Calvin Klein, Condé Nast)—is moving back to London as the new editor-in-chief of British Vogue.

The news this week follows other recent changes at the top. In January, Jonathan Newhouse picked Emanuele Farneti to lead Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue, and novelist Hanya Yanagihara (A Little Life) is the new editor of T.

At the Vogues, the reigns of Alexandra Shulman and the late Franca Sozzani were among the longest at any Condé Nast title. Since 2011, Enninful has pushed the visual envelope at Stefano Tonchi‘s W to its corporate limit. Let’s hope the shake up at British Vogue is equally momentous.

“At i-D, it was always ‘How honest are you to the streets?’ My world is different now, but truth is important. Fashion stories have to relate to society somehow.” — Edward Enninful*

“E as in Edward,” interview with Simon Foxton, Industrie 8 (2015): 78.
