Hide and Seek at Zadig & Voltaire

By Robyn Roberts

October 1, 2014

We can’t think of a better approach for making fashion lovers want an article of clothing more than telling them they simply can’t have it. For Cecilia Bönström, artistic director at Zadig & Voltaire, she pulled a fast one over the masses for her spring/summer 2015 debut in Paris. Bönström showed 26 looks total, but only 10 of them will be available as-seen in the City of Lights, the rest remain a clothing mystery. It’s not unheard of in the world of upscale design houses to create ensembles that never make it to stores. Although, the method of bait and switch might be less common for a high fashion streetwear brand such as Z&V, but Bönström wanted to put forth a serious play on architecture, freedom, and androgyny, and she delivered. Even down to the “unfinished” space she chose for this debut.

Here is what we can offer you, hopefuls: Lots of knits with flirty separates and form-fitting silhouettes covered in pop-colors of neon yellow/green, bubblegum pink and cornflower blue. Ever cool black is an obvious choice for the brand, appearing on crop tops hiding under boyfriend style blazers and paired with low-slung, slouchy trousers. Bönström does androgyny well, bringing feminine sex appeal to menswear-inspired looks. It’s not all for the tomboys, however, as ruffles show up on one-shoulder tops and fitted dresses. Whatever pieces are made available with the release of this collection, we’re sure it will be worth the wait.
