Zadig & Voltaire Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – PFW

On a rainy, urban day, Zadig & Voltaire captured its latest ready-to-wear collection for fall 2016. The line provided looks for men and women, yet both genders were represented in a similar way. Apart from a few cute skirts and dresses, the womenswear looks weren’t overtly feminine, while the menswear looks had touches of androgyny. The differences in gender didn’t cause a stir in the pattern of the line, so everything was able to flow cohesively together.

Zadig & Voltaire Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

The photoshoot for the Zadig & Voltaire fall/winter 2016-2017 line was filmed in a rundown urban setting. This gave a semblance of a new meaning to garments like a torn up white sweater. With this setting in mind, however, everything stayed cool and modern, for the young crowd of today. Zipper details were added to pockets on skinny jeans, while models were styled with slightly disheveled hair that would be expected for the wear and tear of a standard windy day. The makeup was kept simple as well, opting for a more natural approach.

There was nothing extravagant about this line, because it was made with the customer in mind. Everything in the line is ready-to-wear, and the commercial nature of the presentation will help consumers know what they want for when the collection is released and made available for purchase.

The accessories were what caused for the most pause within the line. Handbags were created in a furry fabric, while scarves featured patterns that seemed to be a bit out of place. They were remarkable pieces, but seemed to add a level of eccentricity. They were neither here nor there, not adding anything to the success of the line, but the presence didn’t detract from the garments.

Other handbags, however, were simple, in that they’re commercial and easy to wear with many kinds of outfits, much as the featured here for fall. Even though everything was simple, they had voices and were able to speak for themselves. Between the way the clothes looked and the setting in which they were photographed, there was a substantial amount of character breathed into the presentation.

There wasn’t much for color within the Zadig & Voltaire fall 2016 collection. A simple blue popped up at times, but the only notable color pop was with a teal ensemble. A darker sweater was paired with a lighter tea-length skirt, that appeared it may have been part of a long sleeved dress. As it was presented, there is no way to know if it was a skirt or a dress, due to the bottom of same-colored sleeves peeking out from below the pullover sweater. This ensemble, like many others in the line, was a little bit hipster, a little bit cool, and exceedingly simple. All of these are great things to see in a ready-to-wear line, especially one for fall. There’s just something about the weather cooling back down that calls the need for a wardrobe expansion.
