In 1956, on Brigitte Bardot's request, Rose Repetto creates a ballerina as comfortable as a ballet shoe, but much more appealing and feminine. The ballerina 'Cendrillon' is immortalised in carmin red in the movie: Et Dieu créa la femme. The Cendrillon is since then the mythic shoe of Repetto, made with the stitch and return technique and comes in different colours and materials.
In the 70s, Serge Gainsbourg becomes a brand ambassador wearing the famous white 'Zizi', Repetto shoes created for Zizi Jeanmaire, daughter-in-law of Rose Repetto. The Zizi will always be fashionable and they are made with the Repetto's own technique, the 'stitch and return' method.
The Repetto quality
The mythic models of our Maison are made in our factory in Saint Medard d'Excideuil, Dordogne using the 'stitch and return' technique. Throughout the process of fabrication, numerous controls are carried out to ensure comfort, quality and esthetism to every single pair of Repetto shoes.
In 2009, Repetto creates the Michael, a comfortable and elegant loafer. This design appeals to both men and women and is a Repetto essential.
