Roger Vivier’s autumn/winter 2020 collection is brightening up the dreary season using crystals, premium leather and suede, as well as elegant velvet.
The seasonal must-haves are pointy boots, lace up booties, rain boots and cuissardes, some embellished with the house’s crystal-studded Strass Buckle.
Taking the spotlight are the Belle Vivier cuissardes, which take their cue from Vivier’s signature cuissarde boots from the 1960s. Embroidered by in-house craftsmen using different materials – including leather, velvet, feathers, crystals and pearls – each pair takes up to 12 days to produce and is made to order.
The bag of the season gives the collection a sense of fun. Miss Vivier bags come in graphic tweed, with a houndstooth pattern and a miniature crystal buckle with a leaf motif. On the shoulder strap, the logo is picked out in crystals across the leather band.
New members of the accessories family are the Miss Vivier phone holder and Mini Charm Vivier bag, which is inspired by the trendy bowling bag. Available in mint or pink shades, the bag also has gold chains with the RV logo and crystal buckle charms hanging across the front.
