Arena Magazine Closes Down

By Will Reid on March 5th, 2009

ArenaCoverDec460.jpgThe sad news yesterday was that Arena magazine has been closed down by publisher Bauer Media. The magazine has been running for 22 years and it has always been BOT (Bang On Trend) despite rapidly falling circulation figures in recent years.

The April issue of the magazine is due out next week and rumours are flying that this issue will be the last. Thankfully for our fashion flames, the magazine’s diffusion mag, (if you could call it that,) Arena Homme Plus, will continue on.

Check back to Brandish for a full review of the possible final issue next week!

Further signs that the recession is affecting the fashion industry as Condé Nast announced their plan to absorb Men’s Vogue into its parent magazine Vogue. Editor in chief Jay Fielden is the only member of the magazine to be retained in the change and will reportedly be taking his assistant with him. Hopefully the cutbacks wont be affecting Vogue Homme International.

As well as Condé Nast, Hachette Filipacchi and Time Inc. are also cutting their staff numbers as advertisers hesitate to make firm commitments. Publishers say they are having trouble getting firm, longer-term commitments from advertisers who are having to make quick and strategic decisions.
