Shoe Icons: Roger Vivier

There are some designers where it is impossible to chose a single shoe which epitomises his contribution to footwear. Manolo Blahnik is one. Vivier is another.
He has, over the years given us the stiletto, the choc, the virgule heel. Pilgrim pumps, fantastic embroidery and beading, clear plastic slingbacks, thigh length boots and ALLEGEDLY the Queen's coronation shoes.
The legend has grown to vast proportions, justifiably so.

Often it is the simplest styles which are the best. 1957-62
