Looks from the Erin Wasson x Zadig & Voltaire collection
I first discovered Zadig & Voltaire many years ago during Paris Fashion Week. I was walking down Rue Saint Honore when I spotted a woman wearing a super soft cashmere sweater and battered leather jacket. When I asked her where she got them from, she led me to Zadig & Voltaire. I was hooked.
Today Zadig & Voltaire is no longer exclusive to Parisians with shops in London, Korea, Spain, Singapore and here in Hong Kong. That being said its ubiquity has not stopped me from stocking up on their super soft tees and cashmere sweaters every season. The allure for me has always been its perfect balance of Parisian chic and rock ‘n’ roll, all put together in an effortless way.
To add to my lust list is their newly launched capsule collection designed in collaboration with uber-model Erin Wasson. The designs are a throwback to the 1970s with a touch of grunge – in fact its very Paris meets L.A with its flared trousers, cosy mohair sweaters, chiffon blouse decorated with studs, long and tight backless dress and sexy leather trousers. In true Zadig style its about the details - fabrics like worn suede, raw edges and visible lining.
Tres chic and comfortable, n’est-ce pas?
