Roger Vivier Unveils Its Paris-Inspired Couture Creations, Viv’ Choc Pièce Unique

In a dazzling display of artistry and craftsmanship, Roger Vivier took centre stage at this year’s Paris Couture Week, debuting its Viv’ Choc Pièce Unique collection. Under the direction of artistic maestro Gherardo Felloni, the revered fashion house paid a splendid homage to the savoir-faire of French craftsmanship and the rich history of Paris through an ensemble of exquisite handbags, each a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

Inspired by the iconic Viv’ Choc bag, the collection’s 15 designs are a testament to Roger Vivier’s enduring legacy. With thorough attention to detail and unparalleled artistry, these creations seamlessly intertwine tradition and innovation to encapsulate the essence of the late designer’s vision.

To further elevate the presentation, Felloni envisioned a bespoke ceramic display inspired by a resplendent chandelier. With delicately painted branches cradling each handbag, the display evoked an ethereal feeling that enhanced the mystique of the new collection, transforming it into a visual masterpiece.

Prepare to immerse yourself in a world of unmatched beauty as you explore the diverse range of designs. From the fascinating plumasserie technique, where delicate feathers gracefully dance across the surface of the bag, named Josephine, an enchanting nod to Roger Vivier’s revolutionary 1959 Choc heel, to the intricately embellished Caterina de’ Medici, named after the 14th-century queen of France, with hundreds of shimmering natural pearls, each element exudes an air of opulence, befitting its muse.

Drawing inspiration from the vibrant tapestry of French history, these handbags evoke the spirit of iconic landmarks and historical figures. With velvet and alligator skin as their canvas, each piece becomes a gateway to Parisian elegance, transporting you to the timeless allure of the Eiffel Tower, the grandeur of Versailles, or the captivating world of Marie-Antoinette’s lavish courts.

The creation of each bag is a labour of love, a testament to the unwavering dedication of the brand’s artisans, that have undergone an elaborate process spanning up to 90 hours as artisans infuse their skills and passion into every detail of the bag.

As the collection journeys across the globe for presentations, each handbag sold will be replaced by another, ensuring that every fortunate owner possesses a truly exceptional piece of art.

As you embrace these remarkable treasures, immerse yourself in the magic of Roger Vivier, a world where every handbag becomes a vessel for personal style.
