History of Womens Zadig & Voltaire Shoes
Fashion clearly runs in the blood of Zadig & Voltaire. The company was founded in 1997 by French designer Thierry Gillier who is actually the grand-nephew of Andre Gillier, a co-founder of French luxury fashion house Lacoste. Very much targeting the high-class end of the market with lavish clothes collections and footwear, the price tag may sometimes seem a little high but you can rest assured that only the very finest materials and most luxurious production techniques are employed when crafting new pieces from Zadig & Voltaire. Expanding out from its origins in Paris, the brand is now making dramatic waves in the international market, with stores and boutiques popping up across Europe, America, and Hong Kong.
