The stiletto heel was created by Roger Vivier in 1954, its audaciously plunging lines designed to complement Christian Dior's collection. Vivier was also the man who designed incredibly flattering and sexy vinyl thigh-high boots, as well as low-heel, square-toe pumps that lent urban Amazons their confident stride. His inspired innovations radicalized traditional techniques, as he mixed fabulous embroideries with clear plastic. Vivier persuaded leading manufacturers to accommodate his creative whims, without ever losing sight of his classical foundations. Known as the King of the Heel, this master of frivolity was always one step ahead of fashion.
