Repetto

In 1947, Rose Repetto creates her first ballet shoes on the advice of her son Roland Petit, in a tiny workshop near the National Opera of Paris.

In 1956, on Brigitte Bardot's request, Rose Repetto creates the “Cendrillon” ballerina and dedicates it to her. For BB, this ballerina will always be a part of her success in Vadim's film “And God Created Woman” from 1956.

Rose Repetto opens her first boutique at 22 Rue de la Paix in Paris in 1959. It becomes the place frequented by the world's prima ballerinas: Bejart, Noureev, Barychnikov, Carolyn Carlson, the Kirov at the 'Folies Bergères', all are supplied with their dancing shoes and garments by Repetto.

With a view to expanding her company, Rose Repetto establishes a factory in Saint Medard d'Excideuil in Dordogne in 1967. Nowadays, the pointe shoes and ballerinas are still made using the famous 'stitch and return' method with the highest skill.

In the 70’s, Serge Gainsbourg got fascinated by the “Zizi”, a shoes model, created by Rose Repetto for Zizi Jeanmaire her daughter in law. He became the ambassador of the brand.

Repetto is above all the number one reference for dance equipment, especially for ballet, and the supplier of the most prestigious dancers, from top till toe.

Worship side

The legwarmers, a classic warm-up combo that protects your ankles and knees and softly enhances your sensuality during workouts.

Worn under a skirt, the legwarmers are the perfect alternative to regular tights; made in thick materials, they keep you just as warm while adding a sexy touch, exposing just a thin strip of skin below the upper thigh.

Over a pair of jeans and with some boots, the legwarmers represent the dancer’s alternative to the dominant over-the-knee boots. They breathe the air of the 70’s and 80’s and pay a tribute to Elisabeth Novick, the distinguished fashion photographer who so stylishly introduced the legwarmers to Vogue, catching everyone’s attention and launching a new trend. The girls of the 80’s couldn’t live without this sexy-cosy basic portrayed by Jane Fonda and her legendary workout program.

Today, the legwarmers have their proper place within the history of fashion, and they remain, warming and enhancing the thighs of the 21st century.

Made to be easily removed once the muscles and articulations are warmed up, they are perfect for indoors cocooning accompanied by some mini shorts and a pair of clogs, for maximal comfort and effect.

deTOUJOURS offers you the real legwarmers, in their long version, as worn by professional dancers from Repetto, unique artisan in the ballet world.
