Zadig & Voltaire is known for its edgy meets luxe image. Think cashmere with angel wings and skulls (hey, Tracey you’d love this!)
“The original idea behind Zadig & Voltaire is to create “new luxury”, says Thierry Gillier, designer of founder. “From the beginning, Zadig & Votaire has naturally established itself as a “concept-store-designer” ahead of its time. Zadig & Voltaire is a breath of fresh air, a dream-factory, a producer of designs.”
And fashion runs through Gillier’s veins. Apparently, he’s the great grandson of Lacoste, yes… the one behind the highly successful 80 year old lifestyle & fashion brand.
I personally love this Zadig line for it’s comfort, versatility and amazing feel in fabrics. I would easily throw on a cashmere skull tank with a long hit-the-floor skirt. It’s not in-your-face but the each piece definitely make a statement. It’s fierce in a subtle way. It’s got an urban cool feel with art serving as inspiration in many pieces.
To celebrate the exclusive Canadian launch, Holt Renfrew will host a special events on Saturday, June 1st from 1:00 to 4:00 pm in Toronto (Bloor St.), Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver with live music inspired by Coachella.
Zadig & Voltaire collections in Canada includes men’s and women’s apparel, accessories and shoes. The Bloor Street store already has the collection in stock. Full roll out to other Holt Renfrew locations is expected in coming weeks.
