Art director quits GQ to join style bible Wallpaper

Wallpaper: adding beauty sections

Wallpaper has poached GQ’s award-winning art director, Tony Chambers, to be its creative director, made two other senior appointments and is adding a beauty section.

The beauty director of The Sunday Times Style section, Emma Moore, joins as beauty and grooming director, and Suzanne Trocme, author and journalist, becomes architecture and design editor. They will play a crucial role in Wallpaper’s development under recently appointed editor-in-chief Jeremy Langmead.

Chambers said he would concentrate on the presentation of photography, landscape, travel and fashion, making it "warmer and sexier".

He added: "I don’t think Wallpaper has realised its full potential. They have never really pushed it in terms of photography. This is probably one of the best jobs around." Before GQ, Chambers was art editor on The Sunday Times Magazine. He is due to leave GQ at the end of the year.

Moore, in her newly created role, will launch a section dedicated to beauty and grooming. Langmead said: "Not only is this an obvious addition to the remit of the magazine, Wallpaper will also be the first publication to feature beauty pages for both men and women. Emma is perfect for this task."

Langmead said the appointment of Trocme, a contributor to The New York Times and Architectural Digest, highlighted Wallpaper’s continued commitment to providing readers with the most exciting developments within architecture and design.

More appointments are expected to be made next week.
