About The Founder: Thierry Gillier
Thierry Gillier and his wife Amélie are the founders of Zadig & Voltaire. Gillier is the grandson of Lacoste founder André Gillier. Thierry had a strong background in design because of this. He initially wished to set up a clothing brand to offer an affordable alternative to other ready-to-wear labels without skimping on style. In 1997 he founded Zadig & Voltaire clothes alongside his wife Amélie. The name was derived from a novel written by Voltaire, in which the protagonist was named Zadig. The label took off, and Gillier’s designs were favoured for their fresh, unusual aesthetic. Today, Gillier continues to run Zadig & Voltaire but has handed over the design reins to Cecilia Bonstrom.
The History Of Zadig & Voltaire
Zadig & Voltaire released its first line in 1997. The collection contained a basis of Zadig & Voltaire knitwear, crafted from the finest material and available in bright colours, with tiny embellishments added by Amélie such as metallic skulls. The brand would make a name for itself for this pleasant style of clothing and found a market in providing highest-quality clothing to a select clientele. However in 2003 with the appointment of Cecilia Bonstrom as head director, Zadig & Voltaire dresses, tops and everything in between adopted a punk-rock edge. This edge has won the brand a global following, and today is available to buy in several countries.
Opulence With A Rebel Streak
Zadig & Voltaire is easily discernable for its rockstar essence, wrapped up beautifully in wads of cashmere and sheets of silk. The brand knows how to deliver edgy fashion without sacrificing luxury or class, and has hit a sweet spot that other designers just fail to hone in on. This interesting hybrid of fun, fabulous fabrics and edgy, unusual embellishments keeps the fashion scene on its toes, and a Zadig & Voltaire skirt or top is a perfect way to get heads turning. Celebrities spotted wearing the brand have included Kourtney Kardashian and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
