When Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, then first lady of France,
stepped out with the premier Roger Vivier Miss Viv’ bag in 2009, the accessory became a must for style-setters everywhere. Now, the Miss Viv’ gets a revamp, taking inspiration from brand ambassador Inès de La Fressange’s frequent globe-trotting by adding a travel-inspired twist to a collection. Look for exclusive bags arriving at Roger Vivier flagships around the world, including the festive Santa Folk number, available only at South Coast Plaza. “California is the state of liberty, youth, sun, universities, movies and writers,” says de La Fressange of the myriad influences channeled in the boho design.
