I do love and desire almost all Roger Vivier’s creations.So,what’s best for a relaxing Saturday morning coffee break than the creme de la creme of books, ths collectible ”Roger Vivier” new volume,published by Rizzoli New York.? As Bruno Frisoni,creative director and head designer at the House states :”Shoes should be a beautiful object, before anything,”” and how we agree!Roger Vivier brand has managed to create a myth over the name by designing shoes for the elite of the fashion and celebrity world,naming Catherine Deneuve, Jackie Onassis, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, and,mark this, the Queen of England.

All contributors of the book belong to the top of fashion researchers(such as Virginie Mouzat, the fashion critic of Le Figaro) try and trace the brand’s beginning and fabulous story along with an insight on the overall concept that made Roger Vivier the fashion house that it is today.What’s best,the books includes 300 color photos from vintage magazines, hand-drawn sketches from both Vivier and Frisoni,and contributions from the brand’s ambassador Ines de la Fressange. A must read for all that deal with fashion industry fields,after all its is Roger Vivier the man that created the first stiletto heel for Dior in 1955.So grateful of that we women are!
