In my mailbox: sketch by Bruno Frisoni
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
