Viva la Vivier
Many women are forever indebted to French designer Roger Vivier for his glamorous invention, the stiletto heel. But Vivier also made quite a name for himself in the realm of handbags, using the square buckle he made famous in the 1960s on his “pilgrim pump”. Branded with the iconic square buckle, a Vivier can be spotted from a mile away and serves as a testament to the wearer’s classic sense of style. Whether it’s suede, metallic, python, or leather, a Roger Vivier handbag is feminine, subtle, and timeless, just like you.

Roger Vivier studied sculpture at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and designed shoes for Christian Dior for a decade before creating his own classic label. An impressive group of A-listers champion Roger Vivier designs (think Ava Gardner, Queen Elizabeth II, Katie Holmes, and Jennifer Aniston, to name a few) and it’s no wonder why. Whether a clutch or a handbag, Vivier bags exhibit a keen eye for line, form, and craftsmanship so that your arm candy is more than just a purse, it’s a piece of art.

Daring Darling
Algerian-born Yves Saint Laurent is regarded as one of the greatest French fashion designers of the twentieth-century. Interested in fashion from a very early age, Laurent submitted three sketches to a contest for young fashion designers organized by the International Wool Secretariat. Though only 14 years old at the time, he took third prize and traveled to Paris to receive his award. Here, he met Michel de Brunhoff, the editor-in-chief of Paris Vogue, who encouraged the young designer to relocate to Paris and study fashion.

Laurent followed Brunhoff’s advice and moved to Paris to work for Christian Dior. Laurent’s innate talent shone through and he became the head designer for the label at only twenty-one, after the untimely death of the master. Backed by this experience, Yves Saint Laurent founded his self-titled label in 1962 with partner Pierre Berge. Laurent produced clothes of striking beauty infused with classic sex appeal. From his famous Piet Mondrian shift dresses to his revolutionary tailored tuxedo suit for women, his collections and accessories soon became famed for their daring but elegant looks, a reputation that still holds true today.
