Repetto announces dance-inspired perfume

Repetto Fall 2011 campaign

Repetto is the latest footwear brand to venture into the realm of fragrance, following in the footsteps of Jimmy Choo and Nine West.

Launched in 1947, the French ballet shoe company’s signature ballerina pumps have become eponymous with Parisian chic across the globe, and its more recent developments into handbags and high-end accessories have proven successful.

As the label continues to expand with 22 new stores set to open internationally in 2012, a partnership with fragrance company Inter Parfums, whose other perfume licenses include Burberry, Van Cleef & Arpels and Paul Smith, has been announced.

A line of scents inspired by the world of dance will be available internationally, with the first set to debut in 2013.

Inter Parfums promises the line will be “poetic, glamorous and ultra-feminine,” although no other details have yet been released.
