Repetto

The history of Repetto goes back to the year 1947 to a tiny workshop near the Paris National Opera. Back then Rose Repetto, the founder of the brand, created her first ballet shoe following the advice of her son ballet dancer Roland Petit. But the most important milestone for Repetto was when Brigitte Bardot wore the legendary Cendrillon style in patent red in the film Et Dieu… créa la femme.


After that in 1959 Rose opened her first boutique 22 Rue de la Paix in Paris which became the trusted place for the worlds best prima ballerinas. A decade later one of the French most appreciated musicians, a multi-talent Serge Gainsbourg got fascinated by the style Zizi in white. Originally Rose created the style for Zizi Jeanmaire who was her daughter in law and ballet dancer known from her androgynous presence and style. Exactly what the Zizi shoe is as well; a blend of lace-up oxford shoe and ballerina shoe, the style exhales a perfect blend of feminine and masculine style.


And anyone who has worn a pair of Zizi or any style from Repetto knows how amazingly comfortable Repetto flats are. All the shoes are still made using the famous 'stitch and return' method with the extreme skill and knowledge. This same technique is applied to all real ballet and dance shoes that professional dancers use. After the take over of the Jean-Marc Gaucher the brand has done several partnerships with well known designers and brands including Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons. The attraction remains to this day and the brand is prefereed by many celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss, Jane Fonda and Isabelle Guérin.
