Roger Vivier has launched the oh-so-spectacular Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection book! Filled with all those jaw dropping designs.
Roger Vivier’s innovative spirit is being carried into the 21st century by Bruno Frisoni, Creative Director, and Brand Ambassador Ines de la Fressange. Since his appointment in 2003, Frisoni has updated Vivier’s concepts while bringing fresh genius to signature styles including the buckle pump made famous by Catherine Deneuve in the classic film, Belle du Jour, while the exquisite and quintessentially Parisian icon Ines de la Fressange wears Vivier out in the world always with her inimitable elegance and wit. This lavish volume celebrates the history of the venerated house, and charts its evolution from a carriage trade shoe brand to a sophisticated, contemporary Parisian luxury accessories company with global reach.
With gorgeous new photography of the house’s collection of vintage shoes, beautifully rendered sketches, and details of the remarkable designs coming out of Roger Vivier today, this book is as chic as the accessories that fill its pages. With essays by Olivier Saillard, Virginie Mouzat, Loïc Prigent, Colombe Pringle and Elisabeth Sammelhack, and conversations between Ines de la Fressange and Catherine Deneuve, Bruno Frisoni and Cate Blanchett, Roger Vivier is a dynamic tribute to a much-coveted brand that will be a must this season for anyone with a love of fashion and especially of exquisite accessories.
