In partnership with Roger Vivier
If your schedule looks anything like ours, the months of December and January are a true calendar overload. From end of year celebrations with close friends to intimate, meaningful moments with family and loved ones, the festivities are in full swing, and naturally that spirit also extends to our outfits. In moments like this, it's the small details that make the biggest difference – something that iconic Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blyth and the RUSSH editors agree on – and when it comes to accessories and pieces that are true showstoppers, it's impossible to look past French luxury footwear and accessories Maison, Roger Vivier.
I think we can all agree, there's nothing that elevates an outfit quite like the perfect shoe or bag, particularly during the Australian summer when dressing with ease is paramount. It's a craft that Roger Vivier has held since inception, revered as the architect behind some of the most revolutionary designs and pieces, and the Maison's current creative director, Gherado Felloni is continuing that legacy with the latest holiday 2023 collection, Paris in the Snow.

Sure, the streets of Sydney's Paddington in the midst of the December heat might be more than a small journey away from the city of light, but for Northwood-Blyth, Paris is always in her heart, no matter where she goes. Styled by RUSSH's fashion director, Charlotte Agnew, and photographed by Olivia Repaci, the model and ultimate cool girl embodies all the glitz and glamour of the collection. Iconic silhouette's like the Bouquet Flower pumps and flat 'Très Vivier' Mary-Janes offer an easy transition from day-time plans to sparkling evening celebrations. While timeless handbags like the now iconic Viv' Choc pillow bag means you'll never be without the essentials (or a cute accessory, for that matter).
While on set, we spoke to Bambi Northwood-Blyth about her connection with Roger Vivier, her ultimate styling tips from the summer, and how she's wearing her favourite pieces from the Paris in the Snow collection this holiday season.
Roger Vivier is known for creating collections that resemble works of art. Do you like to accessorise your looks with statement footwear and accessories?
I do. I love being able to elevate a look, with an accessory. Denim is a staple in my wardrobe, so I love dressing it up with a Roger Vivier shoe and clutch like the new Viv' Choc Pillow Bag.
What is it about the Roger Vivier brand that has always been iconic to you?
The shine, the sparkle. I love how feminine and fun it is.

Tell me a bit about your day on set shooting – did you have any favourite pieces that you loved wearing?
It was such a lovely day, and RUSSH's fashion director Charlotte Agnew is the ultimate at cool girl style. I love the Mary Jane’s as well as the velour purse.
If you could describe this collection in three words, what would they be and why?
It’s four but it fits.… Je ne sais quoi – because it’s how the brand feels, looks, the shapes, the colours, the fabric.
