Roger Vivier

The Grand Opening Party of the Roger Vivier Boutique in South Coast Plaza was a night filled with champagne, hors d'oeurves from Marche Moderne, and live music.  Guests were able to meet the charming Bruno Frisoni amidst the chic shoes, bags, and clutches.  You could see his design asthetic in his personality; classic French style with bits of humor and unexpected charm in details. 

The boutique was a carefully planned juxtaposition of vintage Parisan accents and sleek, modern pieces.  Old French mirrors stood side by side with white linear leather sitting pieces, all placed carefully amidst the glorious shoes, bags, and jewelry.

My eyes went immediately to his purses.  The detailing in each piece was unexpected, quirky, and fun.  These pieces would be conversation starters and keepsakes that you'd pass on to your daughters.  As I have a boy, I'd obviously pass this to my daughter-in-law after a series of rigorous trials and tests.  Who are we kidding??!  I'll wait to give them to my granddaughter.  ;)

After the event, we were invited to candlelight dinner with Bruno Frisoni at Marche Moderne.  How lovely and fresh the patio looks!  This was the perfect ending to a fantastic evening celebrating Roger Vivier, Bruno Frisoni, and the amazing shoes and purses from this design powerhouse.

Best party favor!
