Clare Vivier

Designer Clare Vivier marries classic French glamour and minimalist L.A. cool in a line of handbags and accessories that are at once utilitarian and stylish. After recognizing a need for functional yet fashionable laptop cases, Clare took the first steps toward creating her own eponymous handbag line. As the brand has grown, Vivier has collaborated with Steven Alan, & Other Stories, GOOP and Apple, among others. After opening her first flagship store in the Silverlake neighborhood of L.A. in 2012, Vivier opened her second store in Manhattan’s NoLita in 2013 under the new name, Clare V. The brand's third retail location opened November, 2014 in Santa Monica.
