Fashion is fleeting but style is forever as Roger Vivier proves. Withstanding the test of time, the brand continues to draw in fans aplenty
Eccentric, worldly, and with an appreciation for vintage classics, the Roger Vivier woman is a hybrid of past and present— constantly a whirlwind of colour and passion with the delicious scent of rebellion clinging to her. Every bit as alike as the person from whom the brand was birthed. Vivier was always the trend-setter, experimenting with the unlikeliest materials in addition to the creation of the seductive stiletto. However, the iconic Vivier buckle did not appear until 1965 as part of the Belle Vivier shoe which shot to fame when worn by Catherine Deneuve. With his passing, the baton was handed over to creative director Bruno Frisoni and it’s almost like Vivier never left. Brighter, bolder and tweaked to suit the modern woman but still authentically Vivier, Frisoni reinterprets Vivier’s work while never losing sight of the brand’s soul and philosophy. In fact, Frisoni turned the famous name into a luxury brand renowned for its accessories. The range has now expanded from just carrying Vivier's beloved shoes to a delightfully vibrant collection of bags, small leather goods, belts and sunglasses. As proof that Vivier’s designs are indeed timeless classics, several notable celebs such as Karlie Kloss, Miranda Kerr, Nicole Kidman, Rihanna and Michelle Yeoh have all been spotted with understated glamorous pieces from the brand.
