Igor Garanin

Igor Garanin joined Condé Nast Russia in 2006 as an editor and later was promoted to GQ fashion director. He was involved in the launch of GQ Style as a lead editor and was appointed editor-in-chief in 2013. In 2014, Igor Garanin became editor-in-chief at Robb Report Russia and, two years later, became fashion editorial director at the men’s magazines Esquire and Robb Report Russia. On September 12, 2016, Garanin returned to the Condé Nast Russia team.

“Igor is a true dandy and a man of impeccable taste. For GQ, the most influential magazine about men’s style, he is a role model. He has made an impressive career in fashion and as a successful editor-in- chief. Igor is a person who can achieve the unity of form and matter at GQ, which is often a problem in Russia. We often have either smart or beautiful people here. A good mix of outstanding journalism and top-class personal style is rare to find,” Condé Nast Russia President Anita Gigovskaya said.

Igor Garanin is widely known in both fashion and the media industry. In 2003-2005, he was in charge of the men’s department at Monomarka Bosco (Bosco di Ciliegi) and a chief men’s buyer at Kenzo, Hugo Boss, Corneliani and Francesco Smalto.

Igor Garanin was born on January 18, 1976, in Irkutsk. He graduated from the Moscow Linguistic University with a degree in translation. He fluently speaks English and Korean.
