Hearst Magazines has today announced the appointment of Mango Saul as editor of fashion and lifestyle website handbag.com.

He will start on 1 March, replacing outgoing editor Rebecca Holman.

He said: “This is an exciting time to be joining handbag.com which has the potential to be the biggest online brand in the UK. With a planned re-design, mobile site, app and more brand extensions to launch in 2012, handbag.com won’t just be an amazing website but a multi-platform addictive product.”

Rebecca Miskin, digital strategy director, said: “I am thrilled to appoint Mango as Editor of handbag.com – his talent, high energy and multi-platform creativity in the women’s space will be a huge asset to this flagship blue-chip fashion & beauty brand. His digital expertise and success on Sugarscape.com will be invaluable as we successfully expand handbag.com. I’d also like to thank Rebecca and wish her all the best in the future.”
