Roger Vivier: Sparkling in Clubland

In a dark den, with music pounding, the shoes stood out: crystal baubles at the end of high heels. There were more sparkles on ankle boots that were curved open at the side to reveal flesh.
This was the vision of the “Butterflies of the Night” collection at Roger Vivier (pictured), where designer Bruno Frisoni looked back to the Eighties, but brought that disco world into the twenty-first century.
Some shoes even went back to the style of Marlene Dietrich, who was another inspiration. But mostly, the designer focused on sensual and sexy high-heeled shoes – adding a practical side in tiny, evening draw-up bags, for those who want to take their belongings onto the dancefloor.
