Roger Vivier Fall 22 Collection at Paris Fashion Week – Footwear News


“It’s a time to celebrate freedom, love and creativity. Right now it’s hard to do, but it’s my job.

For his Fall 2022 Hôtel Vivier presentation at Paris Fashion Week, Roger Vivier’s creative director, Gherardo Felloni, paid tribute to the house’s craftsmanship, offering guests a glimpse into the shoe-making process – from shapes to heels and embroideries to jewelry.

“The presentation name is ‘Confidential’ because we opened our door a bit to show what’s inside,” the designer said.

What’s inside Vivier is an archive like no other, an archive the designer has drawn from every season since joining the brand in 2018.

The Viv’ Choc neon bag in a limited edition for fall 22.

“When I arrived here, it took me 15 days to see all the archives,” he recalls. “It’s easy to see images whenever you want. But when you have the archive, there’s so much you realize you don’t see [in photos], you do not know. Of course, I memorized everything.

The iconic Choc heel, which Felloni calls a “masterpiece,” is the centerpiece of the new feather-embellished Choc Feathers pump, the designer’s “shoe of the season.”

“It’s handmade, and it takes almost a week to make the shoes and all the feathers by hand,” he said. “It’s something unique, and [Roger Vivier] was the first in history to use this technique and the shoes. It was something for hats and he brought it shoes.

Bag highlights include a limited edition Viv’ Choc rhinestone bag in a neon pink satin variation with a rhinestone buckle.

As always, the designer has combined his love of music, design, and theater by creating distinct presentation rooms, including a dining room buffet, a backstage cabaret, and a leg hallway (and a few crystals and very glamorous pearls.)

A leg aisle showed some very glamorous jewelry at Vivier Fall 22.

It was easy to get caught up in the glamor of it all, but Felloni also had Ukraine in mind. He asked the guests to observe a minute of silence in front of a close friend – a Belgian actress and singer – sang “Imagine” beautifully as she stood next to the giant swan who greeted guests during the presentation.
