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

Loved the skirt with a jacket too here I have similar in my closet from a couple of years ago YAY!

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

The Art is Truth tee has already found its way into my wardrobe…Hmm!  Well we all need a new white tee every now and then don’t we?  here

For this post I am playing dress up in Zadig et Voltaire.  Above I’m modelling a cashmere sweater (and they really are THE best) exact here with my own jeans (old) similar here and a hat, similar here and bag, exact here

Processed with MOLDIV

Another look from the same photo-shoot…I’m still counting the cost of this morning’s fun ;O …here I’m wearing a beautiful aviator jacket which will be a classic for years to come (i.e. fits my style philosophy) exact here over a ripped tee, exact here with a silk cami, exact here the boots that I like with this look are these ones here

I LOOOOVE Zadig & Voltaire knitwear…the quality is fabulous and the details are second to none.  Above I’m wearing this oversize cashmere cardi here but if the cost makes your eyes water 😦 what about this one on sale from last season in grey, which in my book is one of the most versatile and useful of colors which will never date, here I’ve paired this cardi with the same camisole and black jeans to toughen up the baby pink a little.

And here I’m wearing a classic blazer, similar here That’s all the temptation I have time for today my friends ;O…thanks for stopping by, Sarah X

Rockin out in Zadig & Voltaire :D

You might have noticed by now that I have a minor (hmm!) obsession with the Zadig & Voltaire brand 😉  Just a little background on this…I first discovered the label when I was on a visit to Paris some 12 or so years since.  It was, I have to confess, love at first sight…Mr F was relegated to second position and the affair began ;O!!!

So what better place for me and my fellow aficionado photographer friend Iza to hang out for a photo shoot.  We had a blast I have to say!  Many thanks to the team in El Corte Ingles, Marbella for allowing us unlimited access for our exploits.

For these photos I’m wearing the perfect Badass leather jacket here with a basic tee and black jeans (old) similar here the bag is a perennial Zadig piece, here  My boots are Balmain (scored on sale..Phew!) here

The point of this exercise was to show that the rock boho look that the Zadig brand and I have in our DNA is not just for the young.  In fact this style is about as classic as you can get for us baby boomers who grew up in the wake of 50s Rock ‘n’ Roll and in the resulting youth culture of the 60s and 70s!

Love the deets!

There are cheaper alternatives obviously.  Just be careful that they don’t look cheap!  I like this Topshop leather jacket here but I have to admit that the softness and suppleness of the Zadig brand would be tough to beat.

More on looks from this photo shoot over the next few days.  As always thanks for stopping by, Sarah X
