Repetto

In 1947, on the advice of his son Roland Petit, Madame Rose Repetto installs a tiny workshop of ballet slippers at 22, rue de la Paix's throw from the Paris National Opera. Using techniques and adapted products, the success was immediate. In 1956, Brigitte Bardot opens door to the shop with an idea in mind: to find a shoe as light as the ballet ones she was wearing, but much more flattering and feminine. Madame Repetto creates an unprecedented ballerina, according to a technique directly inspired by ballet slippers mounting: the back sewn. Thus, the first Repetto ballerina was born, immediately synonymous with elegance and lightness. Today, Repetto stands out as a true international luxury French house and broadcasts its universe and the quality of its expertise on a large range of products, in ever more fascinating and exclusive boutiques.
