This is a first, the first time we have spoken about Roger Vivier. But Vivier, known as the “Fragonard of the shoe”, has created some of the most important shoes of the 20th century, including in the 1950’s when he invented the stiletto heel. Vivier passed in 1998 and Bruno Frisoni took over as the artistic director in 2002. Frisoni has continued to keep the brand growing, as the shoes have always spoken for themselves and now the handbags are seen on every top celebrity and socialite from Paris to New York.

One of the biggest fans of Roger Vivier is Katie Holmes, who has been seen in Vivier often. The latest acquisition for Katie Holmes is the stunning Roger Vivier Mikado Flat Bag in black python from the fall/winter 2008-2009 collection. While Katie wears her Vivier bag, her daughter Suri enjoys her very own pair of iconic Roger Vivier Buckle Flats. Jealous? Yes, I am as well. Suri is becoming a fashionista in her own right and Katie Holmes is stunningly dressed in Vivier accessories, including her sunglasses and new handbag.

Buy the Roger Vivier Mikado Flat Bag through Roger Vivier NYC for $2275 (large) and $1325 (small). Call 212-861-5371. Visit Roger Vivier online.

    It looks very similar to a Stella McCartney bag featured on my website I wonder what Stella would say.

  • love the bag. it looks much better on someone than the stand alone image conveys.

      it looks so-so on advert, but looks kinda good on katie holmes.. or is it because of katie holmes? hmmm.. (ipad)

    I like the pic of the bag by itself- it makes me kind of want it but when I see it on Katie Holmes, i don’t like it as much.

  • Anilu Magloire

    Love it!

  • hrhandbags

    Katie Holmes seems to be toting pretty much a lot of the hottest bags ever released, although I’ve yet to see a bag that the two of us would agree on.

    I love your site! Thanks for all the great bag reviews.
