Roger Vivier's Fall 2019 collection is next level. Susan Sarandon and Anna Sophia Robb star in Gherardo Felloni’s recreation of Italian director Antonio Pietrangeli’s 1965 cult film Io La Conoscevo Bene. The short film follows a young, aspiring actress who moves from the country to the big city to chase her dreams of stardom, which produces a dramatically animated backdrop for the collection.
The story unravels at a breathtaking mansion deep in the heart of upstate New York. Susan Sarandon is exuberant and fun, with a passion for theatrics, obsession for shoes, and a love for her trusty pup Tuna. Academy award winner, Sarandon, prepares to teach her acting class to eager and talented young students from far and wide.
AnnaSophia Robb steps on the scene as a student acting prodigy determined to learn from the best. Dressed to Impress from head to toe, Robb arrives at the mansion, in embellished Très Vivier boots, the buckle polished to a perfect shine, and her matching Beau Vivier bag. Inside the massive manor, she joins her peers, a stunning and eclectic mix of characters, boasting sensible yet stylish footwear.
A wide range of stunning footwear is present in the campaign from Viv’ Utility boots or Viv’ Run snow booties that keep off the cold from the snow-covered landscape to dainty and ladylike for others who prefer the classics, wearing Très Vivier block-heel pumps. Viv’ Run sneakers, Belty Viv’ bags and Broche Vivier bracelets with sparkling buckles made sophisticated meets street appearances.
Drama teacher extraordinaire Susan Sarandon guides her class through each lesson: laughter, speech, accents, and fashion. With each specific masterclass in polished dressing, Roger Vivier’s magnificent footwear made spotlight debuts that capture the screen. AnnaSophia is the star among her stylist peers as she exemplifies effortless fashion by creating looks and combining accessories.
“Because ultimately, superstars deserve their jewels—and at Roger Vivier, shoes can be jewels and the jewels are the shoes.”
