Editorial Reviews

Review

"The interviews with select personalities and the accompanying text are wonderfully intertwined with the past and present, yet very much demonstrate the enduring influence of the designer and his body of work. The entire volume is gloriously flooded with original sketches, editorials, and photographs spanning over 60 years, most of which date from the time when Mr. Vivier was still active in the business...It is safe to say that what Harry Winston is to fine jewelry, Roger Vivier is to the business of shoe design." ~New York Journal of Books

"...not your typical retrospective work. Rather, it’s more of a curated compilation of old-meets-new. “It’s almost like a scrapbook"... Job well done." ~Style.com

"...a long and rich history, all documented in the new Rizzoli tome..." ~Fashionista.com 

"The storied label’s history is obviously rich, but along with archival magazine pages, scrapbook scans, and ornate sketches, the book includes a look at where the brand currently stands, examining its relationship with both past and future…these are shoes with stylish staying power.” ~Vogue

"There’s a new fashion tome in town and it deserves some prime real estate." ~Lifestyle Mirror 
 
“..a gorgeous coffee-table book…from Rizzoli, celebrates the history, artistry, craftsmanship, and glamour that the venerated house’s shoes and accessories embody.” ~Vanity Fair
 
“…the book conveys the full scope of Vivier’s genius by showing just how beautifully his designs speak for themselves.” ~Nylon
 
“With gorgeous new photography of the house’s collection of vintage shoes, beautifully rendered sketches, and details of the remarkable designs coming out of Roger Vivier today, this book is as chic as the accessories that fill its pages.” ~Bal Harbour

“Roger Vivier
catalogues the evolution of the designer’s signature refined elegance, its changing expression and its cultural impact.” ~National Post

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an elegant coffee-table book providing a comprehensive visual history of the famed brand. The book covers the history and evolution of Vivier from the early beginnings to the present time.

The text is minimal, but the book is loaded with hundreds of color and archival photos and vintage ads depicting the brand's various evolving styles. There are also a handful of booklets containing either interviews with celebrities who wore Vivier's shoes or reproducing some colorful archival and modern sketches.

The book is very-well bound and printed on high quality paper. The photos are large and crisp clear. It is a nice addition to any fashion and photography collection.

It would be better if the book tell more stories about the actual designer Roger Vivier and not on the current brand!
