Roger Vivier is famous french shoe brand which specializes in luxury footwear and was established in the middle of 20th century. The name of the store came from the designer himself Roger Vivier, whose shoes were often called “Faberge of Footwear”. He was designing shoes for Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent at the pick of their careers. In fact, Roger was working for Dior since 1947 for more than 10 years. He was one of the most innovative designers in a shoe industry, creating stiletto, pump hill, and many other famous shoe models. Also, Roger Vivier was designing shoes for Queen Elizabeth II for her coronation in 1953.
I got introduced to this brand during RV launch of Summer’16 Collection which took place at Vouge Cafe, The Dubai Mall. Being into classic designs I was a little bit shocked why I didn’t know before about this fabulous brand. Therefore, I decided to start my post today from the story behind the brand in case some of you hadn’t come across Roger Vivier yet.
The collection they had in the shop was absolutely fabulous. I noticed so many beautiful heels, flats, and sneakers. You can find there footwear for any occasion, as well as casual shoes for everyday use. Also, I got a chance to take a photo with Roger Vivier brand ambassador, adorable Ines de la Fressange (she is in the middle wearing the white jacket).
After checking Roger Vivier summer collection, I tried cute wedges and clutch with happy flower print. Super cute pieces if you can afford to buy RV for each season. However, next time I go for luxury shoe shopping, I definitely would love to get something from the classic collection. Just can’t decide what exactly because they have so many gorgeous staff.
