Bruno Frisoni has always had a knack for turning tried-and-true silhouettes into show-stopping styles.
For Roger Vivier’s fall 2016 Rendez-Vous presentation in Paris on Tuesday, the creative director offered up the elegant d’orsay heel with unique details from oversized bows and ruffles to heels with crystal-sphere heels.
A big story this season was also Vivier’s “Sneaky Viv” sneakers, decked out with leather frills, feathers and all-over beading. Frisoni has experimented with ultra-luxe treatments on sneakers for the past several seasons, part of his modernization of the iconic label. (Just last week, Cate Blanchett paired her overalls with Vivier sneakers while she was at the Hong Kong airport.)
Meanwhile, the Viv bag also got an update, as it was adorned with multiple rows of frills.
For Rendez-Vous this season, Frisoni was inspired by Jean Renoir’s film, The Rules of the Game. “Like a dream passing through the collection, the film influences bags and shoes, turning this Rendez-Vous into a privileged moment when ardour rises and the dream erupts,” Vivier said in its show notes.
