hires staff

News is trickling in of hires at Net-a-Porter’s sibling site, Mr Porter.┬áToby Bateman, currently buying manager at Selfridges has been appointed by Natalie Massenet as buying director for the new menswear site which launches in January. Working alongside Bateman will be buyer Katja Delaloye, previously at Brunschwig & Cie and Hofstetter Sports.

I’m very interested to see who will make the grade for Mr Porter’s editorial division. Net-a-porter is as well known for its magazine (made up of mostly ex-Elle staffers) as its buying and it will be fascinating to see what kind of content is deemed appropriate for the Mr Porter man. Incidentally, the editor hasn’t been appointed yet so if you fancy your chances, apply here!

    I don't know if many us will read the editorial content… We just want online access to a greater range of brands!

    I really do like that name. It's going to really draw in the traffic from men who think the same, je pense!

    I saw this and have to confess that I was more than a little tempted. I'm really excited by Mr Porter!
