Clare V.

Like most good things, Clare Vivier began making bags in response to a need. Travelling a lot while working for French television, she noticed a lack of functional laptop cases that were also stylish, so she fabricated her own. She marries classic French glamour with minimalist Los Angeles cool to produce a line of handbags and clutches that are as chic as they are utilitarian. From conception to fabrication, her line has been made exclusively in Los Angeles since 2008, consciously engaging in ethical manufacturing practice without compromising quality.
