The Roger Vivier collection continued to shine the spotlight on one of its younger signatures, the Prismick bag family, on which leather lozenges were patched together to create a geometric découpé effect. New interpretations included classic suede versions in autumnal colors of prune, mustard and faun or winter-sky blues and grays. There were also fancy ones clothed in marabou feathers that, in the eyes of the house’s creative director, Bruno Frisoni, “are nice and fluffy, like a poodle.” The designer reworked a Sixties bow from the archives into a graphic flat knot for the lovely Papillon round-toed stiletto range, as well as an evening tuxedo version in midnight-blue satin. Other striking numbers included the Scotch boot, named after Scotch tape, which is made from wide strips of glace leather, patent leather and suede, and the open-toe Cloud shoe with cloud-shaped cutouts that Frisoni described as a hybrid of a sandal and a booty. The house also introduced a new print dubbed A Thousand Buckles, where myriad of the closures on black satin created the effect of an animal print.
