Created in fine, kidskin gold leather, rubies were added to both heel and upper leather in a decorative motif, which echoed the fleur-de-lys that decorates the St Edward Crown and the Imperial State Crown worn by Her Majesty on the day. The heel was elevated and Roger Vivier created a hidden platform within.
Though of course, these were a one off, the brand’s current creative director Gherardo Felloni is re-issuing them as part of his SS20 collection.
