Roger Vivier AW2019 Introduces The Beau Vivier
Bags are a big deal for AW2019 and Maison Roger Vivier elevates the accessories landscape for the season with the new Beau Vivier. As Gherardo Felloni continues the evolution of the Maison with new styles, still inspired by the archives, but reinterpreted in his own design aesthetic, he created the Beau Vivier with a special Vivier woman in mind. “For this collection, I was inspired by what women dream and their fantasies,” Felloni shares. “Seven women provided different inspirations for the collection. Among them is a woman who dreams of becoming a movie star - like Catherine Deneuve - who inspired the new bag of the season, the Beau Vivier.”
Finely crafted in leather, the Beau Vivier bag comes with a top handle and a removable shoulder strap, and in both rich colors, such as magenta, cognac and navy blue, and of course, black. A completely new creation, the Beau Vivier embodies the Maison’s values that have been closely guarded throughout the years. Exclusivity, through the luxurious leather that goes through multiple steps of inspection and quality control at the hands of a master craftsman who has honed his skills for more than 30 years. Excellence, through the craftsmanship techniques used by, not only the Italian artisans, but also the different creative minds that bring the bag to life – from sketch to prototype to perfect detailing. And finally, refinement, through its sleek, structured shape and elegant details, such as the iconic Roger Vivier buckle. Inspired by the archives, the Beau Vivier buckle pays homage to Monsieur Vivier’s inventive interpretation during the 1960s, when the buckle was placed on the inverse direction, creating a distinctly different silhouette. Designed for the Vivier woman with a bourgeoisie spirit and a contemporary attitude, the Beau Vivier is a new icon for Roger Vivier.
