Worldwide: New Rendez-Vous from Roger Vivier
Roger Vivier's creative director, Bruno Frisoni, has taken his limited-edition capsule collection for the fashion house, called Rendez-Vous, in a different direction for spring/summer 2012. Whereas the last lineup of shoes and clutches was very rock 'n' roll, the new collection is softer, elegant and Mediterranean-inspired. Frisoni aimed to capture the mystique of Vivier's iconic creations by using materials like blond wood, pearls, bamboo and tinted transparent acetate. Equally feminine is the color palette: powdery rose, aquamarine, pale gold and bright yellow. Our favorites are the No Secret magenta acetate clutch, the pink, gold and tan high-heeled Barbapapa sandal, and the Flower Bouquet clutch. The pieces are truly limited-edition, meaning only 10 to 20 of each has been created, and will tour Roger Vivier boutiques in Paris, New York, Miami, Shanghai, Milan and London in January before going to permanent homes. Prices upon request; 212-861-5371; rogervivier.com.
