Roger Vivier Virgule


Launched in 1963, the Roger Vivier Virgule pump quickly became iconic for it's unusual comma-shaped heel. The word 'Virgule' means coma in French.


Roger Vivier saw the shoe as a sculpture whose shape he constantly called into question. Heels were his key elements, from the stiletto to the ‘virgule’.




Roger Vivier was born in Paris in 1907 and after graduating in Sculpture at the Ecole Des Beaux Arts, he begins to design shoe styles for friends who own a factory .

In 1937 he opens his own shoe design company, where he sells his creations to the most important shoe makers in the world, he also signs a contract with the American company Delman for whom he designs platform shoes which were adopted by Elsa Schiapparelli for her Spring-Summer 1937 Cirque collection.

Working for Christian Dior in the 50’s  and until 1963 and creating for the Maison the shoes for the coronation of the young Queen Of England ,Queen Elizabeth II, as well as for Parisian maisons  such as  Grés, Balmain, Nina Ricci, Roger Vivier creates the “Virgule” heel in 1963 in order to distance himself from his previous creations.




In 1954 he launches the first stiletto heel.

In 1965 he creates the iconic square-heel and Pilgrim-buckle pump for Saint Laurent’s Mondrian collection .This pump will be immortalized by Catherine Deneuve in the film Belle De Jour  by Buñuel . Other iconic women that fell to his feet in every sense of the word, and immortalized his creations were The Duchess of Windsor, Princess Soraya of Iran, Jeanne Moreau and Marlene Dietrich, Brigitte Bardot, to name but a few.

Virgule is an artistic and architectural top of shoemaking, it is like a sculpture. This is definitely not the safe, go-to pair of heels that you would keep at the front of your shoe rack. When it comes to a fun night out at your favourite art gallery or the newest It bar, though, you’ll be loving the Virgule’s quirky silhouette.
