Rockin’ Zadig & Voltaire

For those of you who have been following my blog you will know of my dangerous DNA match with the Parisienne brand Zadig et Voltaire!  Now I’m not wealthy, and I do not buy mountains of clothes every season.  What I do do is buy carefully pieces that will live alongside my existing wardrobe items.  Hence the Zadig addiction.  Why?  Because I love the attention to detail, the quality, and each season key pieces are reworked a little without making older pieces look irrelevant.  The colors are consistant from year to year, and, frankly some of the older pieces that I own look as cool if not cooler than the new.  :O!!!

My photographer friend Iza Jarcyn are both fans of the brand and as such are very welcome in our local downtown concession to play around with the new season stock to feature here and on Instagram.  We do NOT (unfortunatey) have a paid relationship with the brand!

Here I’m showing some of the pieces that I like to transition from summer to fall.  Above I’m wearing a studded, red cashmere sweater here and scull scarf  (perennial must have for me…but clearly I already have it) here

Above I’m in my own pants and tee (both Zadig) the tee is still available here and the pants have been reworked for this season in tiger print ;O here  The bag is an old fav produced every year, but I loved this one with the studded details…no surprises there then 😉 here

Here I’m wearing this season jeans which are the same as I already have, with the tee, ditto!  The patchwork scarf has not yet appeared on line but you may find it in your local store.

Unusually for me I picked out a skirt to show you here  It’s beautifully light and airy for now and I’d wear with a shirt or tee.  Come fall I would style it with the sweater here and a leather jacket, and my Joe combat boots here  The bag is a new design here

So in summary…yes these pieces are expensive BUT they do not go out of style.  I buy a couple of key pieces each season and I still wear stuff that is 7 or 8 years old, and I still love it!  Sometimes I stop wearing something because I’ve got bored with it, but not often.  When I do, I sell it to a new good home!  I sell through Vestiaire Collective because it has a good European coverage and my Zadig pieces always sell well. All round result.  Happiness when you wear lovey pieces, and no guilty landfill excesses.

 

Thats it for now folks.  Many thanks for dropping by. Hugs, Sarah x

  1. I have never heard of this brand and so you have expanded mr horizons! It turns out that they even have an IS site and I even found some things from them on Poshmark- you are right about the prices. I agree with you, if you are going to wear something for years and it’s great quality- that is being wise and in my eyes a frugal shopper.

  2. Love every combination!These outfits def would be a nice transition to the fall. Lovely clothes, especially if the brand pays attention to detail and the quality. I never had anything from Zadig but very tempted to try. Love love love your sandals!!! And the skirt is gorgeous! I tried to pick my favorite picture, but it is impossible they all are awesome and beautiful. The third picture is so lovely… but it should be your picture on the wall and the model standing near the mirror 🙂 🙂

  3. I’m shocked to say I hadn’t come across Zadig & Voltaire before but had a look at the website and there are some wonderful things. It’s worth investing in pieces that make your heart sing with their artistry and quality.
