posted by: Shomore in Roger Vivier Shoes on July 7th, 2010
In the midst of the Paris Couture 2011 shows, Roger Vivier’s artistic director, Bruno Frisoni, announced that instead of the usual couture offerings, the brand would be launching a limited-edition accessories line called the ‘Rendez- Vous’ collection. The new line, which somewhat less couture and more accessible (if you can afford it) doesn’t sacrifice on the details though. For example, take the new shoe which Frisoni calls “Nouvelle Vague” or New Wave. It’s a departure from the signature shapes like the buckle shoe but the natural, organic details are exquisite. The straw shoe is adorned by a rose and there is even a silk pump embroidered with flowers constructed out of beads and wood petals. The pieces will make their debut in Vivier stores in January 2011.
