Creative director Bruno Frisoni has a wealth of history to draw on from the house of Roger Vivier. For his recent collection shown during couture, he recreated a few styles of the famous comma heel, which founder Vivier introduced in 1965. Frisoni added a higher version to the fall collection, here in rich jewel-tone suedes, shiny spazzolato leather and a houndstooth calf hair — materials that also showed up elsewhere in the lineup.
Another group combined shiny spazzolato leather with gray flannel in the brand’s Prismick pattern for a high-low look — which, to Frisoni, felt, “kind of like France,” he said. Fur, a fall staple, was also mixed in, used on the vamp of a kitten heel, all over a large duffel bag and on the front of a bootie.
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
