The Cut, New York Magazine’s style-focused website, has a new recruit: former New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn. She will cover spring/summer and fall/winter collections in New York and Paris, but the site hopes she’ll eventually contribute more than reviews (op-eds or video pieces, perhaps?). Cathy told WWD, “It’s a new platform for me, a nice change, and I look forward to writing about the shows.”

So prep yourself for the return of that witty commentary and nonconformist perspective. I personally can’t wait, @CathyHorynNY.

It’s official. The chief fashion critic of the New York Times for the past 15 years, Cathy Horyn, has handed in her letter of resignation. Cue collective weeping from style followers everywhere.

Fashionista reports, “While The Times‘ Styles section has not named an official replacement for Horyn, it has made two hires in recent weeks: first reporter John Koblin, who took the place of Times fashion critic Eric Wilson after he departed for InStyle, and just last week, former deputy editor Matthew Schneier, who may in fact be Horyn’s replacement.”

Fashion Week is just days away, giving the soon-to-be-confirmed replacement the chance to capture Cathy’s readership without missing a beat. Will they be received without critique? We doubt it. But dry your tears and ready your Kindles – Cathy has plans to write a book about the history of fashion journalism.

Sounds like a coffee-table staple.
