MINI VIVIER: Get ready for the patter of tiny feet at Roger Vivier, which is planning to introduce a collection of kids’ shoes in its stores from March. Dubbed Roger Vivier — Jeune Fille, or, in English, Roger Vivier — Girl, the line is inspired by the house’s just-launched collection of brightly colored patent leather ballerinas for adults, which carry the brand’s iconic buckle.
The kids’ versions sport removable ankle straps, going from 27 to 34 in European sizes. They are priced at 240 euros, or $312 at current exchange. Proceeds from the line will go to a range of children’s charities, such as Save the Children in Italy and New Yorkers for Children in the U.S.
