I don't know if Vivier is starting to loose its groove as far as sale offerings are concerned but their sample sales just aren't the same anymore. Back in 2011, when the brand hosted its first-ever sample sale, I found lots of well-priced merchandise and plentiful sizes to go around. Fast forward to the present, I'm sad to report that although the diversity in designs and styles are still bountiful, sizes are seriously lacking (just like last year). That means if you're size 37 and below, you might as well skip the sale as almost all the inventory available were in sizes 38 and up. There were many classic buckle styles like Gommette flats, Belle Viviers, Chips ballerinas, and Belle de Nuits but, again, none of these styles carried 37 or below. But for those lucky enough to wear bigger sizes, buckle flats were $330 & $360 while non-buckle styles like basic pumps were around the $225 mark. As for other merchandise, I found boots, booties, sandals, embellishments, exotics, and platforms.
If you're into Vivier handbags, you might find the sale a lot more interesting. The inventory included mini crossbody bags, evening clutches, Prismick shoulder bags, and oversized totes. As for prices, small bags started at $300 while oversized totes and exotics were well over $1,500.
To be perfectly honest, I'm starting to feel like the Roger Vivier sales aren't worth the hype anymore (been there, done that). Having smaller size feet, today's sale was once again a strike out for me. Oh well, c'est la vie. I guess I'll take my chances at next week's Charlotte Olympia sample sale.
