Brandon Holley Exits Lucky as EIC
Replaced by Eva Chen as brand continues digital, e-commerce initiatives.
Condé Nast is continuing a leadership shake-up at Lucky with the announcement today that editor-in-chief Brandon Holley has stepped down and will be replaced by Eva Chen, who was most recently working with Condé Nast artistic director Anna Wintour as a consultant to the brand.
Lucky began a restructuring early this year when Gillian Gorman Round left her corporate position of senior vice president, brand development to focus on the magazine as its general manager.
The move was intended to further capitalize on plans to expand the brand’s digital and e-commerce initiatives, and followed the departure of then-publisher Marcy Bloom, whose responsibilities Round absorbed.
“Eva has been instrumental in Lucky’s recent evolution,” said Round in a statement. “I’m looking forward to our continued partnership to advance Lucky’s brand mission and editorial excellence.”
