Tall Tales

by C California Style

French fashion designer—and creator of the stiletto—Roger Vivier is remembered in an eponymous tome from Rizzoli this month.

Archival shoe imagery, renderings and details on current designs fill the 304 pages, while actresses Catherine Deneuve and Cate Blanchett comment on Creative Director Bruno Frisoni. “[He] understands the history of the objects he is designing,” says Blanchett. “There is so much involved that you can just pick a thread to unravel it.”
