Roger Vivier Rendez Vous 2012

Rendez-Vous at Roger Vivier: Bruno Frisoni’s Extravagant Shoe Collection Enjoyed with a Champagne Luncheon  


In the midst of the spring summer 2012 haute couture shows in Paris, the Roger Vivier boutique in Paris slipped an intimate champagne luncheon between the Chanel show in a jumbo jet and Giorgio Armani Prive on Jan. 24.  

Over a glorious array of hors d’ouevres and desserts, guests mingled as they marveled over the “Rendez-Vous” collection of extravagant, extraordinary custom shoes for spring/summer 2012, shown along with unique handbags in wood, raffia, Lucite and other materials. In a hidden-away side room, decorated with bare trees and fallen leaves, they also got to preview the exotic feathered and jeweled fall/winter Roger Vivier Rendez Vous 2012 collection.

Roger Vivier’s artistic director, Bruno Frisoni, was also on hand to greet guests and describe his latest collection. So what if the feather-heeled stilettos with skinny sky-high heels were not overly practical. Frisoni said the shoes make women look more beautiful when climbing the stairs. “But not too many stairs,” he added. 

Frisoni called the feathered styles, “battement de cils,” meaning the blink of an eyelash. (In my book, we call them car-to-bar shoes.)
