Bruno Frisoni, Artistic Director of Roger Vivier, has created the high boots worn by actress Cate Blanchett for her role as Maid Marion in “Robin Hood”.
The boots are a result of the collaboration between Cate Blanchett, Bruno Frisoni and Janty Yates, the costume designer.
Bruno Frisoni: “When Cate asked me to create her boots for the movie, I was so excited I started sketching while we were still on the phone. In my mind I could see not only the boots but Cate as Maid Marion herself! Cate is an incredible actress and person. I admire her modernity, which is fragile and strong at the same time. That’s how I picture her: a woman in men’s clothes. I wanted to create some boots that were both feminine and masculine. Sexy: seduction on a horse!”
you got me there mister, isn’t Cate Blanchett THE absolute woman? i’m almost in love with her, i have to admit.
the boots: here we go
