Memo Pad: Identity Swap for V Magazine... Speaking of Karl Lagerfeld...

There is only one man who could talk Amanda Harlech and Daphne Guinness into swapping personalities — and hair colors: Karl Lagerfeld.

DOUBLE LAUNCH: Interview magazine is gearing up for its second European launch, in Germany, after its Moscow debut, slated for 2011. The German edition, to be based in Berlin, is expected to appear in early 2012. Aliona Doletskaya, the editor of Russian Vogue from its inception in 1997 through 2010, will be editor in chief of both editions.

The European Interview Publishing Group is a joint venture between Vladislav Doronin, founder and president of the Moscow Capital Group, and Bernd Runge, chief executive officer of leading auction house Phillips de Pury and former head of Condé Nast Germany. Runge will serve as publisher and executive chairman of the new enterprise. Further editions of Interview and related activities are planned in Europe, the company said.

The Berlin team will include Jörg Harlan Rohleder and Adriano Sack as joint executive editors. Jo-Ann Furniss, former editor in chief of Arena Homme Plus, will be international fashion director of both the Russian and German editions. Similarly, Tim McIntyre, previously art director of Interview U.S., will be international art director of the two titles.
