Bruno Frisoni’s latest limited-edition Rendez-Vous collection for Roger Vivier builds on another detail from the house’s archives — the 1954 Boule heel. In the form of a glittering disco ball, it appeared as a clasp on bags and on heels or the front of shoes.
Frisoni focused on evening clutches for this exotic collection, with shoes and jewelry playing a supporting role. The color palette was dominated by burgundy, forest green and black in a wealth of surface textures. Hundreds of silver and gold tubes adorned two clutches — one in anodized aluminum — and a matching pair of burgundy heels.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
