Repetto has launched a limited edition ballerina to commemorate breast cancer survivors, now available exclusively in the Repetto Dubai Mall Boutique. Available in pink, the color universally known to represent breast cancer awareness, the ballerinas will be available for purchase at The Dubai until the end of December, giving consumers the opportunity to shop a pair either for themselves or to gift a survivor in their life as a show of support.
The dainty pink ballerina which bears the iconic Pink Ribbon, was launched this month in an event which served to commemorate breast cancer survivors in the UAE. Women of all ages who have completed or are currently undergoing treatment were invited to The Repetto boutique to celebrate their strength and to receive a pair of the limited edition ballerina, to remind them of their strength and resilience.
The story of Repetto begins in 1947, when Rose Repetto designed her first ballet shoes in her workshop at 22 rue de la Paix, a stone’s throw from Opera Garnier. Her success was immediate. In 1956, Brigitte Bardot immortalized the red pair of Cendrillons specially designed for her in ‘Et Dieu créa la femme’, a famous film directed by Roger Vadim. She was an excellent ballerina and confided to Rose Repetto that she wished to wear a pair of shoes in town as comfortable as her soft ballet shoes. The first ‘stiched and returned’ pair was designed in a sensual carmine red. Very feminine as they subtly unveil the beginning of the toes, the first Mythics still embody the incandescent personality of the film star.
At Repetto, luxury begins in Périgord, France, in a workshop of exceptional craftsmanship, perpetuating the perfect movement. Repetto craftsmen and women receive extensive training to acquire the unique technique of the original back stitch. Today, Repetto has become a true French Maison of Luxury. Today, the brand continues to stay true to the tradition of ballet, while simultaneously offering a diverse product range that includes Ready-to-wear, dancewear, active wear, footwear and bags.
