While other brands have put the brakes on expansion in Asia amid weakness in the region, Roger Vivier has just opened its third store there.
The French accessories brand, a division of Tod’s Group, chose Lee Garden Two, one of the city’s most high-end shopping malls, for the latest of its retail locations.
Decorated in mostly pink and nude hues, the 2,260-sq.-ft. store stocks the label’s full line of accessories, including shoes, handbags and small leather goods, along with a limited-edition footwear collection designed especially for the store’s opening that may well rise above the recent slide in luxury spending.
The capsule features three styles, retailing from 5,500 Hong Kong dollars ($710 at current exchange) to 6,700 Hong Kong dollars ($865): a black-and-white-striped cotton ballerina flat and the house’s signature Belle de Nuit pumps in baby pink and vintage green.
The brand already operates units at Landmark and Harbour City shopping malls.
Roger Vivier’s fall ’15 collection, under the artistic direction of Bruno Frisoni, featured the label’s signature dainty designs with new, playful touches.
While the heels were still posh in spirit, details such as multicolored metallics and frayed-lace finishes gave sophisticated stilettos a youthful spin. Heeled pumps and ankle booties were given cutouts lined with metallic color pops.
