Repetto's classic flat gets a sharp new look
Actress, singer, model and animal rights activist, Brigitte Bardot was the inspiration behind Repetto's famed 'Cendrillon' ballet shoe.

For Bardot's starring role in the 1956 movie Et Dieu... créa la femme (And God Created Woman), Rose Repetto used her unique 'stitch and return' method to create a ballerina as comfortable and flexible as a traditional ballet shoe but that could be worn out of the studio. A pair of carmin red Cendrillons were born, and Repetto dedicated the shoe to the French actress. Nearly 60 years on, Repetto has updated the iconic ballet flat and given it a sharper toe. The 'Brigitte' is the brand's second love note to Bardot and is available in a range of colours for A/W'15. Prices start at RM1,190 and will be available at Repetto in Pavilion KL.
