More About Roger Vivier:

A pilgrimage to Madison Avenue? Believe it. For his iconic pilgrim flat and more, head to Roger Vivier's Madison Ave. flagship, his first foray into a freestanding store stateside. If the store's cozy and welcoming, to your feet and your senses, it's because the New York boutique is modeled after Vivier's own pad. Cotton candy colors with an assortment of paintings, African masks, and antiques, with decor by Chanel muse Ines de La Fressange. And you've no doubt seen the shoes addorning the toes of Mrs. Michael Douglas, Kate Winslet, and the such. But he's been around longer than that. Yes, his shoes were fit for a queen (Elizabeth that is) and Ava Gardner back when he was designing for Dior. (As if we need to tell you.) In addition to must-have shoes, the 3,000 square foot townhouse has his eyewear, weekend bags, and designer Bruno Frissoni's exclusive Bespoke bags and shoes. Yes, the guy who used to call both Christian Lacroix and Karl Lagerfeld boss. Talk about clich├ęs: once you leave this boutique, you could literally be the woman who lived in her shoes.
