Need to know...

For ultra-sophisticated classically-elegant accessories, it has to be Roger Vivier. Credited as inventing the stiletto in 1954, the iconic brand was revived in 2002 by Bruno Frisoni. The silver buckle is a design signature to this day, originally created for Yves Saint Laurent's Mondrian collection, and worn by Catherine Deneuve in 'Belle de Jour'.

 for Spring Summer 2011...

Timeless styles include the Belle Vivier, a kitten heel, the Belle Nuit, a mid-heel pump, and the Ballerina Belle. And with flat being a key statement for the season, it has never looked so right for evening; we absolutely adore the bronze summer sandals.
