FASHION | HOTEL VIVIER TAKES OVER THE GALERIES LAFAYETTE

On July 17thMaison Roger Vivier partnered with the Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées to launch its latest Fall/Winter 2019 collection. This takeover is an aesthetic delight for luxury shoppers and fashion aficionados alike, as it involves Hotel Vivier and Daydream Vivier-themed installations displaying on three entire floors of the renowned Paris department store.

For six weeks, the Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées will be highlighting Roger Vivier’s iconic styles, along with the fashion house’s newest offerings. On the ground floor, a majestic atrium welcomes guests with a grand façade of Hotel Vivier, serving as a gateway to the rest of the “Roger Vivier universe.” As Maison Roger Vivier states, “Hotel Vivier is an ode to women, in all their diversity and beauty, that will take guests on a journey that crosses over to dreamscapes, merging fantasy and reality.”

On the first floor, guests can peruse the newest additions to the Maison including the Très Vivier pumps, the I Love Vivier heels, and the RV Mini Bucket bags. Meanwhile, six glass boxes await on the second floor, providing a backdrop for installations that showcase the collections, as well as the brand’s spirit. From a private cinema to a room filled with hundreds of unicorns, the installations demonstrate how shoes and accessories bring ideas and concepts to life – how whimsical creation and inspiration coexist. This particular level at Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées represents Daydream Vivier, where the glass boxes highlight showstopping pieces like the Trapeze heel, reincarnated from the 1960s. Fashionistas will also love some of the rare Vivier items, meticulously handcrafted from crystals, silk, velvet, and pearls.

Hotel Vivier and Daydream Vivier provide Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées visitors an opportunity to enjoy a unique shopping experience, while surrounded by the beauty and creativity of a couture-focused museum.
