Grazia USA launches brand’s first US print edition
Digital platform audience continues to grow
Grazia USA, the international edition of Grazia born out of the licensing agreement between the Mondadori Group and Pantheon Media Group LLC, launches today the first US print edition of the Mondadori Group brand.
The debut strengthens the presence of the first 100% Italian fashion magazine on one of the world’s largest and hottest fashion markets.
The new issue of Grazia USA – 356 pages, released quarterly – features three different exclusive covers that flesh out the “Evolution” concept, celebrating three prominent women on the American cultural and social scene: nine-time Olympic medalist Allyson Felix, British supermodel and designer Alek Wek, hailed for her influence on the idea of beauty in the fashion industry, and Canadian singer-songwriter and actress Jordan Alexander, an advocate of LGBTQ+ and coloured people’s rights. The content from the three cover stories also unfolds on social channels, on Grazia USA’s website and through dedicated newsletters, creating a contemporary and unique platform.
Grazia USA will count a total circulation of 400,000 copies, reaching an audience hungry for fashion, art, culture and beauty, as well as for design, entertainment and travel, leveraging on the signature cosmopolitan mix of the brand. The first issue has received a great response from the market in terms of advertising sales, with advertisers including major luxury brands such as Armani, Etro, Loro Piana, Tiffany, Dior, Vuitton and Harry Winston.
Positioned in all the major fashion and luxury countries, Grazia is the first 100% Italian fashion magazine to have exported its successful formula worldwide, from Italy to the United States. The Mondadori Group brand, which currently counts a total of 21 editions in 23 countries, reaches a global audience of 15 million readers, 45 million unique users and over 30 million followers on social channels.
The US edition of Grazia made its debut in October 2020 through the global digital-first platform graziamagazine.com featuring Kim Kardashian West. Since then, Grazia USA has enjoyed an unprecedented online growth, peaking at 5.2 million monthly active users, with a readership that is predominantly female, 50% under 30 years old.
The new quarterly issue of Grazia USA will be distributed at all Barnes & Noble bookstores, selected retail outlets in the U.S. and Canada, online at https://www.magazinecafestore.com/products/grazia-usa-magazine and on graziamagazine.com/subscribe.
