Visionary & Creative Hero:
Fabien Baron

“The last magazine modernist,” Fabien Baron is one of the most sought-after creative directors in the world. Searching for the elemental to “minimize maximally,” Baron moves, surprises, and even shocks many with his extremely striking, ultra-modern vision.

By Mariame Moussally


This monumental body of work can now be seen in all its glory, thanks to Baron’s first career monograph, the magnificent Fabien Baron: Works 1983—2019, released by Phaidon. The French creative director is notorious for not only reimagining the design of Italian Vogue but also Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue Paris and Interview.  Fabien Baron also created iconic, unforgettable campaigns, logos and product designs, for Calvin Klein, Issey Miyake, Dior, Burberry, and Giorgio Armani. He also designed celebrated books such as Madonna’s Sex (1992), Kate Moss (2012), and Calvin Klein (2017) and directed films for Gucci, Chloé, and Bottega Veneta. This much-awaited monograph provides a privileged outlook on Baron’s finest work and formidable creative instinct.

The book is available at phaidon.
