The entertainment and management company, owned by rapper Jay-Z, will partner with Modern Luxury Media to launch Edition, a multi-platform luxury storytelling property. Edition will produce print issues, as well as digital, social and experiential activations. The platform will be dedicated to plugging diverse groups of content creators and talent into the world of luxury. Isoul H. Harris, former editor-in-chief of Uptown magazine — who has also produced content and programming for brands including Morgan Stanley and American Express Platinum — has been appointed editor-in-chief. Harris will work alongside Jana Fleishman, Roc Nation executive vice president of strategy and communications, as well as the Modern Luxury team, on the platform.
“Historically, luxury titles have lacked diverse coverage. This is an unfortunate truth and as leaders and owners in media, it’s our privilege and opportunity to defy the status quo and ensure we are providing a platform for diverse communities to connect,” said John Amato, principal at Modern Luxury Media.
