CULT STATUS: An unlikely but oh-so-perfect pairing of iconic brands: Repetto, the dance shoe brand that literally invented the ballet flat, and king of decoupage John Derian have joined forces for a special edition. The pink BB style, named after Brigitte Bardot, who first began wearing the slipper on the street, is reimagined in a print that features festive florals overlaid with Derian’s signature antique script. The shoe, which retails for $295, will be available mid-April at Bergdorf Goodman, Alan Bilzerian in Boston and Opening Ceremony, as well as at John Derian boutiques. “After pairing with two cult brands like Rodarte and Opening Ceremony, John was the obvious choice,” said North American director for Repetto Michael Flanagan.
