Roger Vivier was perhaps the most innovative shoe designer of the 20th century. He designed extravagant richly-decorated shoes, that he described as sculptures and he is credited with the design of the first stiletto heel in 1954. The new book of the house includes everything from vintage Vivier, to more recent pieces by Bruno Frisoni. We can say that it is a delightful tribute to the legendary shoe and accessories designs of Roger Vivier. With gorgeous new photography of the house’s collection of vintage shoes, beautifully rendered sketches, and details of the amazing accessories coming out of Roger Vivier today, this book is as chic as the shoes that fill its pages.
