Zadig & Voltaire
The French luxury brand Zadig & Voltaire has been putting rock and roll into Parisian dressing rooms since 1997. Founded by Thierry Gillier, the brand broadens with iconic pieces: jeans, cashmere sweaters, boots, leather jackets and the famous Zadig & Voltaire handbags. Chic yet wearable, luxurious yet not too much, trendy yet original, Zadig & Voltaire’s fashion DNA is articulated by Artistic Director Cecilia Bonstrom, who has reinterpreted the Zadig & Voltare style in a line for children.
The Zadig & Voltaire story
Zadig & Voltaire is one of the most audacious, rock-inspired brands in the fashion world. Founded in 1997 by Thierry Gillier, it takes its name from the Voltaire novel "Zadig, ou la Destinée"(Zadig, or The Book of Fate) (1747), the main character of which inspired the designer.
More than just a brand, Zadig & Voltaire is a concept: Thierry Gillier takes his cues from the Paris music scene and creates an unusual, yet accessible and contemporary "rock luxe". The fashion capital then saw its native hipster wildlife rocking the famous Zadig & Voltaire look in all the trendy hangouts, based around 4 must-haves: a pair of Zadig & Voltaire jeans, a cashmere jumper, boots and a leather jacket by the brand. Chic and wearable, Zadig & Voltaire style is defined by an injection of "intellectual rebel", a look which has gone international. Fashionistas worldwide can't get enough of the famous cashmere jumpers featuring diamanté-embellished slogans such as "Elvis", "Mick" or the iconic skull motif. A jeans and bag specialist, Zadig & Voltaire floods the fashion scene with premium plain-dyed garments featuring rock motifs for everyday wear. Poppy Delevingne, Camille Rowe Pourcheresse, Freja Beha, Bella Hadid, Gabriel-Kane Day Lewis… the biggest top models and it-girls of the moment are fans and, in one fell swoop Zadig & Voltaire makes them its muses. But the brand's success story doesn't end there. Not content with adding a "Deluxe" line, which shows at New York Fashion Week, Zadig & Voltaire has ventured into the world of perfume, as well as creating its own record label.
Zadig & Voltaire style for kids
In 2006 the Zadig & Voltaire empire welcomed a new line: children's clothing. If you want to create your own mini me, it is now possible to dress kids aged 6-14 years in Zadig & Voltaire from head to toe! Zadig & Voltaire cashmere jumpers for children, as well as jeans, dresses, jackets and nautical tops for girls and boys are designed in exactly the same way as the adult pieces, offering little rebels the same iconic Parisian look.
