Tyler Brûlé to return to the FT

April 7, 2008

Tyler Brûlé is to revive his Fast Lane column in FT Weekend on April 26 as part of a relaunch. The column will return to the back page of the weekend section alongside Harry Eyre’s Slow Lane pieces.

Brûlé, founder of Wallpaper* and editor-in-chief of Monocle, will return on April 26.

Fast Lane ran from 2004-06 and covered travel, trends and upmarkets consumer goods, with two consecutive weekly columns rarely written from the same country.

However, Fast Lane does tend to divide readers. Some find its jet-setting tips unmissable; other pretentious. As one comment to a Guardian blog by ‘Ragunoodle’ put it:

‘The writing was really priceless. I would like to meet the person who invented the Tyler Brule character and convince her/him to bring it back. FT is at a loss without it.’
