Some brand set trends, other brands chase them and still others do exactly what they please no matter what else might be going on in the industry. Roger Vivier, with its pointed toes and signature pilgrim buckles, is a brand of the third type, and this season, fashion has gotten behind Vivier’s refined aesthetic whole-heartedly; there are few more civilized places to spot this season’s trends.
For this brand, of course, they’re not trends. Vivier makes shoes for Upper East Side ladies and European aristocrats, and the rest of us are just along for the ride. And for Fall 2011, it’s a mostly splendid journey with contrasting metallic heels and a bit of strass sparkle here and there. If Louboutin heel heights aren’t your thing, you may be a Vivier woman at heart.
