By Thailand Tatler
February 12, 2020
The exclusive event was attended by the fiercest women in society, including Cindy Bishop, Suquan Bulakul and many more

Theatre, musicals and cabaret has always inspired Gherado Felloni, creative director of Maison Roger Vivier. So for the brand's spring/summer 2020 showcase in Bangkok, Roger Vivier hosted the Hotel Vivier Call Time at The Crimson Room, for its exclusive guests and fans of the brand to explore the new collection in an atmosphere of mystery, live music and romance. The spring and summer collection features cheeky reinterpretations of Viv’s Clogs with pieces such as the Vivier Queen Sandal, the Tiki Viv’ Mule and the Tiki Viv’s Mini bag to go with it. Refreshing and casual, the collection would still make the most glamorous and whimsical beach accessories as you will discover down below. Meanwhile, at the party, we stole some moments with 10 of the most high profile attendees—from accomplished artists and international supermodel to medical professionals and entrepreneurs—to learn of their stories surrounding the brand and what comes to their minds when they think of Roger Vivier.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

The one I'm wearing right now—the Belle Vivier Trompette. It's the classic silhouette, but I love the metallic edge to this one. It gives it more of a pop, but still super versatile. I could wear it out to the evening or to the office. 

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

I've been a fan of the brand forever. It's very much my style, so I don't even remember when I started knowing about them. They've just been a part of my wardrobe for a long time.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

My favourite is the Roger Vivier Flower Strass Pumps. It's the satin pair with the sparkly buckle. I was so impressed by them when I first saw them. I thought they looked classy and expensive and, most importantly, you could wear them with anything and they'd looked good, and your feet would look good. 

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

In truth, I came to know about Roger Vivier from seeing celebrities wear the shoes. They were so en vogue even the royal family wore them, and it was actually the satin pair that was my first real introduction to Roger Vivier. 

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

A successful woman and a woman who isn't loud with her fashion but when you look at her, she has that "it factor".

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

My favourite ones are the Belle Vivier Trompette in mirrored leather and with Roger Vivier's classic metal buckle. They are innovative yet classic and give a nice twist to any outfit. 

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

I got introduced to the brand by my friends. One day, one of my best friends came up to me and said she had discovered the most beautiful shoe brand and that I needed to get a pair of them. We went to together to the store and the rest is history. 

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

A strong and powerful princess.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

I own multiple pairs of Belle Vivier Trompette. They are very practical and can be carried from day to night. They suit my personality and character very much—smart, confident and strong.

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

I first saw it in the shop in London. I entered the shop because the buckles attracted me. Upon learning the brand’s history with Queen Elizabeth along with several other historical figures wearing these shoes, I really fell for Roger Vivier. I got my first pair in London probably eight years ago.

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

The name Roger Vivier evokes sense of elegance, sophistication, glamour and whimsicality. Vivier’s women are confident, independent and sophisticated.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

I like the flats. Roger Vivier’s flats are very versatile, and I usually wear them to work at the hospital I manage.

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

Years ago, actually, I got the chance to be featured in Thailand Tatler, and that was when I first knew about the brand. Roger Vivier is very glamorous, yet very comfortable and wearable.

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

I think Roger Vivier is the brand for the independent, working woman, someone whose schedule is packed and does not have the time to constantly change her shoes from event to event. She can wear Vivier to work or to cocktail parties.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

I tend to fall for the tomboyish style, and this pair, the Belle Vivier Trompette, is very smart just like what I like. 

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

Me and Suvadee Phungbunphra of PP Group are good friends, so I learned of the brand through her. I had heard of Roger Vivier for a long time but really got to know the brand in depth because of PP Group.

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

Speaking of Roger Vivier, I think of France and French women. I imagine a woman with a fluffy black dress, black leather jacket and Roger Vivier pumps—or elegant figures like Audrey Hepburn or Catherine Deneuve.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

I love Roger Vivier's Flower Strass Pumps, yellow one with crystals.

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

I first heard of Roger Vivier back in the time I was still working for Dior. Vivier used to design shoes for Dior.

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

I think of evening shoes when I hear Roger Vivier. I think of the simplicity, comfort and, of course, crystal-studded buckles. I used to think of very feminine women, but now Roger Vivier encompasses new items like sneakers and more casual looks, so I would say that the Roger Vivier woman is simply someone who has fun dressing up and knows what they like.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

That's so hard to answer! I think it'll have to be the pair I'm wearing right now, the Belle Vivier Trompette—it's simply the best! It's one of the older models, before the current designer. I think Roger Vivier has become much more dramatic after the latest designer, but for me, I love the classic style. I think every woman needs a good black heel, one that you can wear with everything. You need one that is just at the right height and angle that makes you exude beauty and confidence, which means you should also be able to walk in them in real life.

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

I've always been into fashion, and Roger Vivier is a staple in the fashion world, especially when you're talking about a brand that is all about shoes. Because that's how Roger Vivier started out, focused solely on shoes. There weren't many brands like that, so Roger Vivier has always stood out to me for having such a strong character. 

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

When I think of Roger Vivier, I think of a woman with such an allure. She makes you question, "who is this woman?" You see her and you need to know who she is and what's her secret. She's sassy, sophisticated, fun and classy all wrapped up in one.

What is your favourite pair of Roger Vivier?

Definitely the one I'm wearing today. It's the Belle Vivier. It's my favourite because I don't usually wear heels. I enjoy wearing flats more, so this is really comfortable to me without sacrificing on style. 

How did you come to know about the Roger Vivier brand?

I got to know about the brand from Suvadee and Orand, of course, the founders of PP Group, who brought in the brand to Thailand. I'm friends with them, so she told me she was bringing in Roger Vivier and introduced me to the brand and its legacy. 

When you think of Roger Vivier, what image comes to mind?

I think of a woman who has her own unique character because Roger Vivier shoes are so versatile. For instance, if she's kind of cool and edgy, she'd be wearing a Roger Vivier sneaker.
