Zadig & Voltaire Rocks NYC

ZADIG & VOLTAIRE BRINGS A STREETWISE FRENCH TWIST TO NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

Backstage at Cedar Lake, an event space in Chelsea, a crowd was bustling around with purpose. Models, dressers, hair and makeup stylists, photographers and publicists were prepping for Zadig & Voltaire’s runway show for Fall 2018, which was to start in a little less than an hour. But unlike most presentations at New York Fashion Week, an occasion that usually encapsulates bedlam, this one appeared a little less harried.

“This season, my message is to confirm that Zadig & Voltaire is the contemporary rock ‘n’ roll brand,” Bönström explained. “For me, the girls are very delicate but, at the same time, very rock. There are a lot of legs, a lot of skin. There’s leather and knitwear with perfect, sexy cocktail dresses.”

This year, Zadig & Voltaire is celebrating its 20th anniversary, a benchmark that is seldom achieved, especially in luxury. With the state of fashion in flux now that spending habits have shifted toward Instagram-worthy experiences, many are left scrambling to find their footing in markets across the globe. The brand has stayed above the fray, relatively speaking, because it doesn’t deviate from its original message. Even when the trend of the moment is something radically different from it’s core aesthetic, it stays true to itself—something that the Zadig & Voltaire’s founder, Thierry Gillier, 58, learned early on.

Dior Haute Couture & Bal Masqué

“Only the inevitable theatricality of my life interests me.” — Leonor Fini

The history of haute couture is intimately linked with the history of modern art. The couturier is an artist unto himself and the word “atelier” designates equally the studio of an artist or that of a designer. But any artist’s true “studio” is his or her spirit. It’s in this dimension, located somewhere between dream and reality, or imagination and realization, that Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Artistic Director of the House’s women’s collections, pursues her research and explorations. Because haute couture is a dream of fashion. It’s a place where there are no limits to pushing boundaries and experimenting with technique, material and form. Immersing herself in the heart of the Surrealist movement made it possible to bring a fresh breath of imagination to the spring-summer 2018 haute couture collection, conjuring an otherworldliness and constant optical illusion. 

Surrealism also applies to the evocative words and phrases that guided Maria Grazia Chiuri in creating a collection predominantly in black in white sprinkled with illusion and surprise.  

Captura de pantalla 2018-02-20 a las 8.11.56.png
Captura de pantalla 2018-02-20 a las 8.14.04.png

Never trust a first impression… In that spirit, generous pleats on a white evening dress are etched in black like the pages of a book, while caging, a recurring motif in Surrealist works, is transformed into a black mesh fabric that hugs the body and underscores transparency as silvery fishnet mingles with the density of velvet.

But above all, it’s the charisma of the artist Leonor Fini that defines this collection’s strict yet radical attitude. Leonor Fini, who left Italy for Paris in the Thirties, held her first exhibition in Christian Dior’s gallery and befriended the designer from that moment onward. Whenever she made one of her phantasmagorical appearances, she often wore Dior. Leonor Fini was the incarnation of the then-revolutionary idea that one must always remain independent and reinvent oneself as a representation of all possible realities. She used clothing to define herself and set her own stage, in public as in private: at once influential, severe and elegant, she struck poses inspired by portraits of men from the Renaissance, by the constant interaction of art and life, and the blend of the natural and artificial. These marvels of haute couture came into being in a dimension suspended between dream and reality.

The same applies to the daywear for which Christian Dior had such a knack, and notably to shapes reinterpreted using traditional men’s wear fabrics. Maria Grazia Chiuri draws on these as inspiration in a series of suits that recalibrates Dior’s curves to today’s tastes, paired with skirts of multiple contrasts.

Ever faithful to the Surrealist tradition of deconstructed forms, accessories make their presence felt in a whimsical way: a fishnet stocking veils a sandal, while gloves clutch an ankle. It’s this way of seeing and being seen, with a point of view that draws on the unconscious and today’s world, that Maria Grazia Chiuri uses as a foil for embroideries and other embellishments. On a dress illuminated by a mirage of peacock feathers, precious and delicate ornaments become eyes that behold and express mystery — as well as the spiritual power of today’s women.

Lady Like by Chiara Renis

For its debut the brand presents TIMELESS. The Collection is a hymn to pure excellence and sophistication, an homage to the noblest fabric, silk, exclusively supplied by the world’s leading manufacturers of Italian silk, and to the finest cotton, produced by a leader in the manufacturing of Italian shirting textiles.

With one foot in the tradition and the other one in the future, the brand showcases a collection which is the quintessence of elegance: an effortless chic, sober, and flawless style, with impeccable silhouettes featuring a game of light and shadows, where the concept of “contrasts” is the leitmotif, subtly balancing the texture and refracting glow of the fabrics, while adding a touch of contemporariness to a timeless aesthetic.

Inspired by spectacular views of the Australian sky and ocean, by dramatic hues of blue, by dazzling stretches of white sand, by a sense of freedom and a strong bond with nature that are the distinctive traits of a country glowing under the Southern Cross constellation, OUT OF THE BLUE captures the essence of the Australian soul through the eyes and sensitivity of an Italian-born designer who passionately advocates the purest Made in Italy as the most authentic expression of quality and excellence.

Travelling to Grasse with Dior and ELLE Spain

ELLE_ALEXRIVIERE_DIOR_001_83535MEDRES_sRGB.jpg

Alex Rivière no es fan de las etiquetas. Prefiere definirse como «una apasionada de la moda que estudió un año de Diseño antes de compaginar la carrera de Marketing y Comunicación con Administración y Dirección de Empresas, por obligación parental (risas)». Pero sus 117.000 seguidores ven más allá de su papel como directora creativa del despacho que lleva su nombre. Su perfil en redes sociales, cuidado y minimalista, sigue su definición de estilo: «Me encanta la belleza clásica; las costuras perfectas y los patrones bien hechos. Tener un buen fondo de armario es esencial». ¿El complemento final de cualquier look?  «Sin duda, la fragancia», confiesa. La unión de ambas pasiones la convierte en la heredera idónea del legado de Christian Dior. Él, que se sentía «tan costurero como perfumista», tenía como fuente de inspiración la campiña de la conocida como capital de las flores: Grasse, en la Provenza.

Hasta allí viajamos con Alex para vivir uno de los momentos favoritos del histórico creador: la recolección. Recorrer estos campos tan ricos es un paseo por los orígenes de la firma. Las fórmulas inéditas que el nariz François Demachy crea en su laboratorio de Les Fontaines Parfumées se asemejan a los reconocibles cortes del maestro, mientras que las delicadas puntadas de sus piezas encuentran su sinónimo en la recogida de la selecta materia prima de este territorio. Y si la chaqueta Bar es la prenda fetiche de la maison, el jazmín es el punto débil del perfumista. El escenario de esta visita, Le Domaine de Manon, da fe de ello. Fue la primera explotación proveedora en exclusiva de Dior, gracias a que la visión de su directora, Carole Bian- calana, le conquistó con la unión del savoir-faire ancestral y el cultivo bio en sus dos joyas: la variedad grandiflorum de esta flor blanca y la rosa centifolia. 

ELLE_ALEXRIVIERE_DIOR_003_83808_v2MEDRES_sRGB.jpg

El primero, que sólo crece en las excelentes condiciones de Grasse, «tiene diferentes facetas. Puede juntar varios aromas, como mango, almendra, plátano, melocotón, leche... e incluso una esencia más animal. Y, en función de las condiciones climáticas, predomina la una o la otra», apunta Carole. Su peculiaridad lo convierte en un frágil tesoro escaso (quedan unos 30 productores) que se recoge únicamente de julio a octubre, ya que la temperatura es esencial para su calidad. En verano, los pétalos se abren de noche y el trabajo comienza a las seis de la mañana para evitar que los casi 40 grados del mediodía las dañen. A finales de septiembre, hay que esperar a las ocho para que el calor abra los mismos ejemplares. Y a primera hora es cuando una tierra recién teñida de blanco recibe a Alex.

ELLE_ALEXRIVIERE_DIOR_005_83759MEDRES_sRGB.jpg

Los operarios ya están armados con sus cestas y le explican que hay que pinzar cada flor sin prisa pero sin pausa. Una vez que las plantas quedan limpias, se someten a un proceso de extracción para conseguir un concreto. Durante los 120 días que dura la temporada, estos concentra- dos se guardan para mezclarse sólo al final. Su objetivo es unificar las aristas de la especie y dar con un resultado similar año tras año. Alex pregunta cuál es el destino final de esa esencia. «Casi todo es para J’adore L’Or», revela Carole. «Cuando en 2010 descubrí la fragancia, me emocioné. Fue como trasladarme a mis campos». Siete años después, el frasco ha engalanado sus curvas con un proceso de grabado único que lo convierte en un auténtico objeto de deseo. «La saga J’adore está grabada en la memoria colectiva.

ELLE_ALEXRIVIERE_DIOR_002_83580MEDRES_sRGB.jpg
ELLE_ALEXRIVIERE_DIOR_004_83609MEDRES_sRGB.jpg

Son aromas para mujeres independientes, sensuales y seguras de sí mismas», afirma Alex entusiasmada. Para cerrar la jornada, y mientras de- gustan una brioche con mermelada de jazmín, Carole le confiesa su proyecto más ambicioso: su asociaciación, Les Fleurs d’Exception du Pays de Grasse (creada para ayudar a nuevos cultivadores), se ha unido a productores, fabricantes y casas de perfumería para presentar un informe en la Unesco. ¿Su fin? Convertir este saber ancestral en Patrimonio Inmaterial de la Humanidad. «Lo vamos a lograr, pero hasta el año que viene no nos lo confirmarán», añade. Nosotras tenemos el champán enfriándose.
