A Parisian fashion house is making its Texas debut. Zadig & Voltaire will open in late February at Houston's luxe River Oaks District. This is the first Texas store and seventh North American outpost for the brand.

The French haute house was conceptualized by Thierry Giller and inspired by creatives throughout history — hence the brand’s reference to French philosopher and critic Voltaire. Since its inception, the brand has continued to expand globally, thanks in part to its creative director, Cecilia Bonstrom, and regular appearances at New York and Paris fashion weeks.

Zadig & Voltaire is aimed at “one who leads a bold lifestyle which necessitates elevated staple pieces that seamlessly transition from work to play,” according to the brand.

The line boasts chic collections for women, men, children, as well as accessories. Modern pieces with an emphasis on comfort and ultra-flattering cuts make up the collections encompassing the French aesthetic and attitude.

“We are pleased to welcome Zadig & Voltaire to River Oaks District,” said Festival Companies CEO, Rosalind Schurgin, in a statement. “This highly sought-after brand is an important addition to our expanding global merchandise offerings. Zadig & Voltaire embodies French sophistication that is attainable in their variety of casual luxury lifestyle pieces and accessories. I trust Houstonians will naturally gravitate towards their aesthetic.”
