A luxury maison specialising in footwear has just announced a traveling exhibition pit stop in Abu Dhabi...

Parisian label, Roger Vivier, is set to take the much-talked-about traveling exhibition, aptly titled Icons Connected to Abu Dhabi. Following a recent pit stop in Dubai, the exhibition will now take place in the capital and will pay tribute to the late designer.

Icons Connected will exhibit beautiful accessories and shoes that capture the heritage of the brand. Also featuring a range of iconic photographs and vintage pieces from the brand's celebrated timeline, 11 displays will showcase prominent events throughout the brand's existence including the evolution of the iconic Virgule heel, Elizabeth Taylor's shoes, Queen Elizabeth's coronation shoes and framed collages from the brand's archives created by the famed designer himself.
