Skulls, angel wings, wolves, butterflies and goodness knows what else Zadig & Voltaire’s creative director Cecilia Bonstrom would contrive to add to their rock ’n’ roll inspired cutting edge garments that could so masterfully synthesize casualness and luxury to bring about a brand new “casual luxury” style that was soon to become the best-loved pieces of many young ladies. The creative director of the French fashion house has recently presented the Zadig & Voltaire spring/summer 2016 collection that again feels pretty feminine and masculine at the same time, the exact pieces to slip into as you get out of bed and head to run your everyday errands.
Several seasons in a row Cecilia Bonstrom has been zealously playing with vivid colors, trying to marry the brand’s signature black, white and brown colors with racy shades of yellow, blue and pink. Frankly speaking, we were quite contended to see our favorite brand being showered by a colorful rain. However, to all appearances the gothic colors proved to be uncompromising and the new Zadig & Voltaire spring 2016 collection features only one particular saturated color – a brink pink pantsuit with tiny star-like motifs on it. The rest of the separates are purely and in toto Zadig & Voltaire.
Over and over again we are in anticipation to feel those natural and cushy cashmere, leather, cotton and washed silk on our bodies. White cotton shirts with puffed sleeves and the same material baby doll dresses look ideal when paired with the brand’s signature fringed brown leather jackets or brown casual blazers. One of the white shirts paired with leopard leggings could have caught many leopard-python-fancier girls’ attention if not Cecilia’s fresh new offering to cast aside those slinky leggings and pay attention to those scandalous brown-white leather panty-style shorts with shoulder straps and crisscross laces that are being twins with the same texture ankle boots.
These new style boots with tiny square heels are really effective complements to the brand’s whole bunch of biker boots. Some military vibes are wondering through Zadig & Voltaire’s rock ’n’ roll style getting in shape through a camo print boxer jacket or an olive green one tied nonchalantly at the model’s waist over a brown handkerchief dress. Denim pieces are in full swing with tattered hems and unique embroideries on them.
The brown leather dungarees and the lovely ice-cream patches used on the denim pieces forcefully bring back childish memories featuring one of the most typical samples of urban life, and if there is the sun burning, your head is sure to be protected and styled with those fedora, derby hats and Gavroche caps that our favorite Zadig & Voltaire is proposing to us. Round-shaped clutches with multiple fringes cascading down, especially the vermillion one could become a part of this season’s must-haves despite being too micro to lodge anything essential. Last but not least, for spring Zadig & Voltaire has a fruitful message to you – keep peace, love and let your angel wings grow freely!
