End of era as art director, stylist leave Interview magainze

Celebrated art director Fabien Baron and top stylist Karl Templer have exited Interview magazine.

Baron was editorial director, with Templer as creative director. The shake-up comes after Interview — founded by Andy Warhol and now owned by mega-collector Peter Brant — faced such challenges as a dispute with its Soho landlord and a lawsuit from a former top exec.

It’s not the first time Baron, who also crafts campaigns through luxe agency Baron & Baron, and Templer have left.

Observes an insider: “They’ve been there three times . . . This last run was nine years. For everyone, it was the end of this chapter.”

A rep for Baron confirmed the departure, but didn’t comment further.

Templer, who could not be immediately reached, was accused of sexual misconduct by three models in a February Boston Globe fashion-world exposé.

He strongly denied the allegations, commenting: “I deny these vague and anonymous allegations. If I’ve ever inadvertently made anyone feel uncomfortable, I’m truly sorry,” and “I’m always respectful of models, remain deeply committed to creating a safe and professional working environment, and embrace the systematic changes that our industry is implementing.”
