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!
