The restyled magazine made its debut today along with a new podcast called The Ethicists, which has been produced in collaboration with Slate. Jake Silverstein who took over from Hugo Lindgren early last year – after his dismissal due to the loss of advertising dollars – has been determined to give the magazine a fresh new look to compete with its sister magazine T: The New York Times Style Magazine since his arrival.

Silverstein told WWD that he has set out to create a more "luxurious" experience for readers, the editor went on to explain that this meant putting more emphasis on photography, paper stock and high-end content, which will include more literary features and poetry. The magazine's logo has also been slightly updated and moved back to the centre of the cover and with more advertorial content including ads from brands such as First Republic, Patron, Cadillac, Diesel and Bank of America there is a palpable transformation.
