Roger Vivier SS12- Art Deco meets Cubism
Courtesy of Roger Vivier
We've seen a strong 20's influence in many SS12 collections. I love how designers have reinvented drop waist dresses and flapper fringed hemlines. You can almost hear the 20's roar again.

This weekend Roger Vivier presented their SS12 collection in Paris, which I was sad to miss. Their people always put together the most beautiful presentation in really stunning venues.
The brand joined in on the 20's trend for next season. They approached it from a different angle –the early era that saw the end of the Art deco movement and the beginning of Cubism started by Picasso and Braque.
The key for the Roger Vivier SS12 styles created by Bruno Frisoli are the geometric leather pieces in different colours sewn together onto a uniform base that make up the shoes and bags. The effect reminded me of the cubist take on the figure of the harlequin that Roger Vivier has often used as a motif –this time in that cubist/art deco way I mentioned.
The 'Prismick bag' and the 'T Bar Sandal' (picture on the right) are two of my favourite pieces. They're fun and contemporary but classic. I can really see them on Blair Waldorf. She's worn some stunning Roger Vivier pieces in the past and these citrusy colours would be perfect for her!
