L'Official Names Frédérique Dedet Editor in Chief

By  |  0 Comments

(NEW YORK) L’Officiel is adding a new talent to the upper rungs of its masthead. The French glossy has tapped Frédérique Dedet as editor-in-chief at the title. Dedet joins the magazine from Point de Vue, a French title that follows the European royals scene. 

Dedet’s arrival follows the departure of Daphné Hézard, who left L’Officiel to join the soon-to-launch Harper’s Bazaar France; her last issue came out in October. The title’s French debut will get a roll-out date next month, likely pegged to spring 2014. Hézard will serve as fashion and lifestyle editor at Harper’s Bazaar France. Dedet’s first day is January 3, according to WWD. If Dedet’s gig ends up resmebling her predecessor’s role at L’Officiel, expect her to deal more with the mag’s text than with its fashion spreads.
