June 26, 2019: Gherardo Felloni has a flair for the dramatic. The Roger Vivier creative director tapped actresses Susan Sarandon and AnnaSophia Robb for a short film to present the French label’s fall ’19 campaign, designed by Felloni. The film, which goes live on the house’s social channels today, re-creates the story of the 1965 Italian cult film “Lo la Conoscevo Bene.” A young aspiring actress moves from the country to the big city to pursue her dreams. Susan Sarandon stars as a flamboyant teacher who has an obsession for shoes (and the Instagram-famous dog, Tuna). Robb is the young student who is dressed to impress in Très Vivier buckle boots. Inside the grandiose salon of an upstate New York mansion, she joins the young actors, an eclectic mix of characters wearing different styles from the collection — from sneakers to utility boots, all with the house’s famed buckle.
