French fashion label Zadig & Voltaire presents the Urban Pirate- an English preppy style with pirate influences for Spring Summer 2012 collection at Marina Bay Sands Singapore.
Cotton, silk and cashmere were the essential lightweight materials utilised to deal with the cool weather of Spring and the heat of Summer.
For Women’s wear –
The Zadig & Voltaire woman is a character who constantly is in search for ways to combine rock ‘n’ roll with chic, to blend masculine and feminine. This summer, Zadig & Voltaire revisits the dress codes of the English chic, combining pretty items with wild style.
DIY has taken over the wardrobe. Cargos have been cut off with scissors to create mini shorts, rhinestone cashmere sweaters cut to fall above the belt line and jersey fabric overdyed and lightened.
Pirate influence was evoked on sweaters featuring sequined skull motifs, and a horizontal striped sailor silk waist coat embellished with gold coins.
Women’s style has certainly taken a leaf from Menswear in this collection.
The embodiment of the English sartorial vibe was seen on formal fitted boyfriend blazers toned in fresh hues of shimmering materials. The Zadig & Voltaire preppy English style launches androgynous sophistication to a whole new level, as seen on blazers and ankle length rolled up trousers.
A noteworthy item of this collection would be its cashmere sweaters. Raw and unhemmed on the edges, the sweater curls up from the bottom to meet the waist level, revealing a glimpse of a belt buckle.
Masculine Rolled up sleeve fitted jacket in reflective ocean blue sateen material, was matched with a pair of raw edged distressed bleached shorts.
The model turns heads wearing a python print jacket paired with a knee patched lime green trousers, matched with a messenger hand bag and boots for a fashionable “fashion jungle” camouflage.
An oversized light cashmere sweater was matched with a silk scarf and raw edged white denim shorts. This ensemble could prove to be a summer must have for an effortless casual laid back vibe.
A short cashmere sweater features the label’s iconic skull, this was paired with a pair of gold waxed skinny jeans for a girl going for a rocker chick appearance.
A head-turning snakeskin printed cashmere cardigan in porcelain blue was paired with a degrade pencil skirt and a quilted leather bag.
Zadig & Voltaire has made Mesh material look amazing and desirable. Mesh cotton and silk blend sweaters would be breathable for the summer day out, matched with rolled up slim cut pants.
A desirable piece of the collection- A silk waistcoat in blue Alba stripes embellished with gold coins and loose threads, simply radiated a nautical heritage aura.
Rocker girl attitude was materialised by the usage of metallic sequins on this evening dress, which wraps the body silhouette perfectly and was matched with an equally smashing military inspired gold buttoned jacket.
