Barbizon

From Barbizon: Portrait of a Company, 1967. Designed by George Tscherny. Larger version.

George Tscherny designed this company profile for lingerie company Barbizon in 1967. The book contains just a few modest shots of the garments, focusing instead on the manufacturing process; Barbizon was unusual in that it also produced the synthetic fabrics used in its lingerie. The depiction of the fabrics, dubbed with nebulously romantic names like “Blendaire Batiste” and “Satin de Lys”, came easy for Tscherny, who has continually explored the natural draping of textiles as an element of design.
