ON SECOND THOUGHT: Condé Nast has pulled the plug on its upcoming launch of Glamour Japan as it seeks to cut costs and wade through the financial crisis. “The only reason for this is the economy,” said Kazuhiro Saito, president of Condé Nast Japan, who added the concept and mock-ups for the new title were “perfect.” About 10 employees, including editor in chief Sayumi Gunji, are affected by the decision, but some will likely be placed elsewhere within the company. Glamour Japan would have entered the country’s crowded field of mass-market fashion magazines including AneCan, Oggi, Sweet and Glamorous.
