Roger Vivier’s new sustainable shoe visits The Madonna Inn

Roger Vivier’s latest campaign is getting campy, thanks to singer Rainsford (AKA Rainey Qualley, daughter of Andie MacDowell!). The performer stars in the footwear brand’s new imagery against the interiors of California’s famous Madonna Inn. The resulting photo shoot, which she also co-produced, highlight creative director Gherardo Felloni’s newest creation, the “Walky Viv”. The shoe, a sneaker-combat boot hybrid, topped with an oversized crystal buckle, comes in white, black, and green and is sure to be a must-have. Better yet! The style is the brand’s first sustainable shoe, formed from recycled canvas. No wonder it takes center stage in its Spring Summer 2021 collection.
