Condé Nast today named Hamish Bowles as the new editor in chief at The World of Interiors. Bowles brings with him over 25 years of experience at American Vogue on the senior editorial team, where he is currently global editor at large overseeing all house and garden features, contributing profiles of cultural figures, as well as reporting on the history of fashion and style.
In his expanded role, Bowles will lead The World of Interiors’ editorial team into a new era that honours the magazine’s timeless heritage while expanding its influence and reach to audiences across digital and video. Bowles will succeed Rupert Thomas, after 22 successful years at the helm, and will be only the third editor in chief in the magazine’s 40 year history. The World of Interiors was founded in 1981 by Min Hogg from her flat on the Fulham Road and quickly became known for celebrating the unique and the unusual. It was acquired by Condé Nast in 1982 and is today appreciated by lovers of art, culture and style worldwide. The magazine has an iconic status, acknowledged as the ultimate authority on design bringing together exceptional interiors and decorative arts.
