Roger Vivier opened thier new flagship store in NYC last week. The gorgrous classic square-toe buckle flats which the equally lovely Catherine Denvue made famous in 'Belle du Jour' can be found there. Exhibit A:
The boutique also features small leather goods, the new handbag line and sunglasses as well as lots of different shoe styles.
We can get our lovely flat fix without having to go to awful Saks (well at least here in NYC). Have I mentioned my loathe for Saks Fifth Avenue? Where to start? The pushy over-bearing cosmetics sales people, I swear it's like a video game trying to fight them off just to get to the rest of the store, and YES unfortunately I know of no way to avoid them, there is only one way to enter and its by having to walk through that first floor swatting them off (no matter which door you choose). Arghh. Anyway.
The new boutique was designed by cult French jeweler Herve van der Straeten, and has a very artistic, calm vibe. A glimpse into the lovely and serene (no crazy sales people here) new store freshly opened on the Upper East Side:
