Prada puts its best foot forward with its new limited Made-to-Order Pumps Project, with a selection of pumps this time around that’s exclusively for ladies. And as far as Prada is concerned, the possibilities are literally endless, with an extended range of options for you to customise to your heart’s content. What’s also new in this coming edition is the updated range of prints that will include the iconic Flower, Kiss and Lips, as well as a new bejewelled buckle (because we all like shiny things, don’t we) that will be made available as an add-on for the pumps.

Now that we’ve got your attention (and all these customisation possibilities floating around in your head), we’ve got you covered and broken it down into the key numbers for easy reference.

19 – A total of nineteen different pumps and sandals (with or without platforms) will be ready on-hand for this project.

8 – The total number of heel heights that will cater to ladies who are either looking for utmost comfort or choosing to stand tall in the crowd with those few extra inches.

6 – The range of hues that the pump will be made available in, on top of the newly added prints.

4 – The pumps will come in 4 different materials –  patent leather, satin and suede. In other words, there would at least one finish that will appeal to your shoe-obsessed soul.

3 – As far as the soles are concerned, you can choose between Black, Light Blue and Lily-Of-The-Valley (a soft nude pink), which can be further customised if you’d like to include initials, numbers and charms in an amber or steel shade.

Roger Vivier: Behind The Chrome Buckle

CATEGORIES:Designer Shoes

VIVIER’S PILGRIM MADE ITS FIRST APPEARANCE IN 1965 FOR THE MONDRIAN-INSPIRED COLLECTION BY YSL. IMAGE: ROGER VIVIER

Think Roger Vivier and the first thing that comes to my mind would be its iconic buckle, something which I’ve always associated with the French luxury shoe-maker who opened his first store in Paris’ fashionable rue Royale back in 1937.

Having worked with fashion greats like Christian Dior, Nina Ricci and Pierre Balmain, it was through Yves Saint Laurent’s invitation to design shoes for his 1965 Mondrian collection that Vivier’s emblematic icon was born. The chromed buckle adorned a selection of flat-heeled pumps which Vivier created to complement Yves Saint Laurent’s couture creations for that season.

And there’s been no looking back since.

Today the buckle is a permanent fixture in almost all of Roger Vivier’s creations under the direction of the brand’s Creative Director, Bruno Frisoni, who has adopted the chrome buckle as a symbol of Maison Roger Vivier. ‘This emblem of the Vivier spirit seemed the most obvious signature,’ Frisoni says, ‘especially as it lends itself to so many interpretations.’

From shoes and bags to small leather goods and even accessories like belts, jewellery and sunglasses, the iconic Vivier buckle has been reinterpreted countless times according to the spirit of the season.

From being intricately decorated with glittering strass to holding its own as the most defining icon on the Viv’ range of bags, the buckle has seen various interpretations – wrapped in leather, adorned with floral crystals, even chromed in countless metallic hues. The only constant is that it has never become unrecognisable, always retaining its distinct shape as an ode to its creator.

Walk into Roger Vivier today and you’ll see a plethora of buckled beauties, starting from footwear that range from tall sensual heels, to flat-heeled pumps, to girl-on-the-go sneakers. And then there are the bags, from the Pilgrim de Jour leather tote that comes with matching leather-wrapped buckles to the Viv’ range of exuberantly youthful pieces that come in the form of sling bags to clutches and everything else in-between.

In other words, falling in love with most everything you see would the easiest part. It’s deciding on what exactly you’ll want to bring home with the iconic buckle that would be difficult.

NET-A-PORTER Sale: Up to 50% Off

NET-A-PORTER Sale

I love browsing through sales. It makes me feel like a kid on Christmas morning! Even if you don’t find what you were hoping for under the tree, there are always other fun surprises like Lanvin’s white platforms. While the look is retro, they’re rocking some of the season’s best trends – metal heels, pointy toes, ankle straps, and white pumps. These shoes are worth the full ticket price, but if NET-A-PORTER’s going to give them away for less, who are we to argue? Other heels worth splurging (or saving) on are Alexander McQueen’s gold-dipped platforms. They’re about as glamorous as pumps come, and in perspex, that’s saying something. When shoes are half off that means you should get two pairs, right? Seems like sound logic to me! Dangerous, yet sound. Shop the full sale here.
