Belle Vivier - A Roger Vivier Icon

It was in 1965 when Roger Vivier was catapulted to stellar success. He designed a classic black pump, embellished with an oversized chrome-plated buckle for Yves Saint Laurent’s presentation of his Mondrian collection. The shoes became the most in-demand footwear of the season, with women flocking to the rue François 1er boutique in Paris to buy a pair. In 1967, the shoes were forever immortalized on film as Catherine Deneuve wore a pair in Luis Buñuel’s “Belle de Jour,” and has since been known as the Maison’s most iconic style.
