The legendary George Barbier was born and lived in Nantes, the sixth-largest city in France between 1882 and 1932. In the early 20th century, he became one of the greatest French illustrators. In 1911, Barbier, at 29 years, mounted the first-ever exhibition that consequently saw him elevate all through his career with endorsements to design theatre and ballet costumes, draft illustrations on books, and Haute couture fashion. He further indulged in the designing of wallpaper, jewelry, and glass. George composed essays, among other countless articles for the revered Gazette du bon ton.
For our Edition Costumes Parisiens, we selected seven of George Barbier's drawings. The 1920s represents the transition from the distressed imperial era into a new age full of uncontrollable desire for life, experimentation, and liberation from out-of-date rites and customs. Though the myth of a time of excesses in art and architecture only arises in retrospect; however, from today's perspective, this is related to a fair amount of fascination.
