Zadig & Voltaire
French fashion house Zadig & Voltaire defines its recognisably rebellious style with intentionally scuffed ballet flats, distressed ankle boots and edgy statement jewellery. Studded clutches that can be worn two different ways and are decorated with rock icons –skulls with angel wings, say – reinforce the label’s unconventional image.
