The return of classicism has a new objective – to reinterpret the rules of sophistication. Expressive sartorial accoutrement has become the captivating new subject of the notoriously chic. Its elegance extrapolates from molten black sky-high boots to buckled leather combats to crystallised heels. From satin clutches to tricked-up trainers to suede carry-alls. This long-held romance for magnifying the moment while romancing nostalgia is part of the Roger Vivier heritage and it arches into this season’s rendezvous with a poetic, pre-Raphaelite take on discotheque. It offers an enigmatic vision of the future, a fashion sfumato of sorts – one that blends and blurs the lines between realism, retrospect and our life in style.
