Roger Vivier’s creative director Bruno Frisoni loves the idea of contrast. For spring he referenced the “tender, sweet side of a Seventies cool boho lady,” but added some street chic for good measure.
Frisoni tapped into that flower child vibe with the Cube, a classic Vivier platform sandal, which he resurrected and fashioned in both silver and a flower-power print inspired by the Vivier archives. The print was also used on bags, sandals, flats and sneakers with jeweled buckles — in a nod to the street style. Flowers were also done as luxe appliqués on Viv and pouch-style bags, as well as motifs in denim and multicolor gingham patchwork offerings that added to the lighthearted feeling.
Evening looks consisted mainly of styles shown for couture, save for satin and crocodile sneakers with jeweled buckles. Despite all the eye-candy, Frisoni was clearly focused on the updated Viv silhouettes — such as the braided Tricot style and a new round buckle on ballerina and d’Orsay flats — as he is well aware that the house’s bread and butter are its classics.
