Bruno Frisoni is leaving Roger Vivier after 16 years as head of design at the prestigious Parisian accessories brand owned by the Della Valle group.
Frisoni joined Roger Vivier as creative director in 2003 and maintained the heritage of Roger Vivier whilst adding his own accents of eccentricity and sophistication. In 2006, the company was sold to the Della Valle group. According to the brand, the decision is by mutual agreement and comes at the end of his current contract.
Speaking of his decision, Frisoni said: 'These 16 years dedicated to reviving Roger Vivier represent a fascinating and exceptional experience. I thank Mr. Diego Della Valle for his trust, Ines [house muse de la Fressange], an inspiration and a friend forever and of course the talented teams and collaborators who allowed me to bring the brand where it is today. An extraordinary adventure.'
'I would like to thank Bruno on my behalf and on behalf of all the people who work for Roger Vivier, for the work which has been done during all these years and I wish Bruno a future filled with new opportunities and success,'
Diego Della Valle, president and CEO of Tod's said in a statement.
Roger Vivier is one of the most famous shoe makers of the last century. Inventor of the stiletto style in 1954, he collaborated for many years with Christian Dior.
The latest Vivier collection designed by Frisoni which is his last, will be presented in Paris on February 27th, during the Fall/Winter 2018-2019 Fashion Week.
