In an assured play of contrasts, the Roger Vivier Fall 2016 collection is a defiantly feminine collection. The luxurious twists of objects and mixes of genre, generate paradoxes to depict an electrifying woman. Two opposite worlds collide to create a brand new, über-elegant woman who Roger Vivier’s Creative Director Bruno Frisoni sums up in a few words: “She is armed with softness”.
The leather frills bring an electrifying romanticism to the emblematic Roger Vivier accessories. There is a hint of French cancan in the many rows of leather frills, disrupting and reinventing the volume of the Viv’ bag. Combining Parisian sophistication with sleek lines, the signature buckle is daringly emphasized by the small metal rivets. On shoes, the frills weave along the arch of an evening sandal, surround the buckle on a Sneaky Viv’ and spice up the shape of a dorsay heel. A subtle take on extravagant femininity!
The new iconic Roger Vivier bag with its curved buckle, this Viv’ bag creates a power of seduction with its XXL houndstooth motif, a tricolor version or also embellished with a handmade embroidery with leather and velvet material and lurex thread. Graphic, this style is modern and lady-like: it can be worn on the arm, over the shoulder, or cross-body.
The floral chiné print of the Fall 2016 collection adds a touch of romance and femininity to the shoes and bags line. Inspired by a traditional silk chiné fabric, the pink, violet and khaki colours shake up the iconic Roger Vivier models.
The rose signature appeared for the first time in Roger Vivier’s collections in the 1960s. Reshaped by Bruno Frisoni since 2004, the rose comes this season in silk, scuba or leather ribbon. This romantic touch embellishes three shoe models: the black version on a black satin evening sandal and a black patent leather Sneaky Viv’, and the pale pink satin rose as a hint of sophistication on a Sin heel.
The classic buckle adorned with crystal flowers is the essential for the evening. Pumps, ballerinas and a soft clutch in silk satin are embellished with crystal and colors. On one side there is the buckle, Roger Vivier’s emblem, and on the other the essential white sneakers, a true skate icon. For the first time ever, Roger Vivier steps into the world of sneakers with the sophisticated Sneaky Viv’.
