The stiletto heel was created by Roger Vivier in 1954, its audaciously plunging lines designed to complement Christian Dior's collection. Back in the sixties he was also the inventor of incredibly flattering and sexy black-vinyl thigh boots, and the low-heeled square-toed pumps which lent urban Amazons their confident stride. His inspired innovations radicalized traditional techniques as he ranged between fabulous embroideries and clear plastic, metallic-finish kid-skin and metal mesh, persuading the leading manufacturers to accommodate his creative whims, but never losing sight of his classical foundations. Known as the 'heel king', this master of frivolity was always one step ahead of fashion.
