Born in Le Locle, Switzerland, François Berthoud graduated from the School for Graphic Design, Lausanne in 1982, before moving between Paris, Milan and New York. His early fashion illustrations were championed by Anna Piaggi in Vanity Fair, and his work has since appeared in publications such as Vogue and Numero as well as advertisements for brands including Viktor&Rolf, Bulgari and Tiffany. In 2014, he drew upon his background as a cartoonist to produce an animated comic strip for Prada's Candy Florale perfume. Berthoud's experimental style is renowned for its precision and elegant eroticism, and his hand-made aesthetic employs the increasingly unusual technique of linocutting in order to capture both mood and moment with irony and artistry.
