The History of High End Design Fashion – Zadig et Voltaire

Creating Zadig&Voltaire, Thierry Gillier imagined a new type of luxury. He broke away from the academic definition of the sector, enriching it with authenticity and warmth. This intellectual process has forged a modern approach to luxury expressed in an effortless and chic style. This approach has become a mindset, a new way of seeing the world that favours nature over artifice as part of a quest for personal meaning.

The freedom dear to Zadig&Voltaire is expressed in an effortless look combining and contrasting pieces and iconic materials. The softness of cashmere blends with the casualness of crushed leather, the femininity of a lace dress dovetails with a pair of studded boots, and an urban sweatshirt showcases a timeless fitted jacket, creating a contemporary silhouette.

This vision has attracted free spirits having identified with Zadig&Voltaire’s philosophy. The House does not judge or rank; rather, through attentiveness and advice, it stands as an exacting style guide that helps people to express their individuality, forge their own style and break free of diktats.


Founded by Thierry Gillier, Zadig & Voltaire invents a diverse universe that thrives in the in-between. Not just for him or her, day or night, or work or leisure, the Parisian fashion house redefines modern femininity with wild, free, and rock-fueled wardrobe essentials that embody the strength and sensuality found in the rough and undone.


Artistic Director since 2006, Cécilia Bönström is the other half of Zadig & Voltaire. A subscriber of “less is more,” Cécilia lends a distinct style and sensibility that plays in perfect balance to founder Thierry Gillier. With a penchant for storytelling instead of simply following trends, Cécilia’s collections imbue an ageless quality, with each piece feeling fashionable yet never fleeting. Sumptuous, silky cashmeres and soft, washed-out cottons intertwine with subtly androgynous silhouettes, marking Cécilia’s signature.


Nestled in the 16th arrondissement, Zadig & Voltaire is headquartered in the unique Hôtel Particulier Iéna, located in the Right Bank, Paris. With a prime view of the Eiffel Tower and adorned with a lush garden, the office is a striking four-story, Haussmann-style building. Constructed with soaring ceilings, intricate crown molding, and original woodwork, its iconic Parisian style juxtaposes with the office’s contemporary art and furniture, capturing the irreverent mix that is Zadig & Voltaire..
