Team Tonchi continued to take shape at W Thursday when the magazine dismissed market director Treena Lombardo and well-respected accessories and jewelry director Brooke Magnaghi, and hired Karla Martinez away from Interview to fill both spots. “I wanted to centralize the way we are covering the fashion market,” new editor in chief Stefano Tonchi said. He added that Martinez will work closely with fashion director Alex White to present a “unity of vision.”

“I think we should be set,” Tonchi said when asked if there would be further staff turnover. Martinez, whose official title will be fashion market director, continues Tonchi’s trend of stocking the editorial pool with familiar faces from his prior post as editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Before joining Interview last August, Martinez served as market director at T. Tonchi previously lured issue editor Armand Limnander and editor at large Lynn Hirschberg away from the Times.
