CLARE VIVIER | THE BAG LADY

26/04/2013

 in 

Like most good things, Clare Vivier began making bags in response to a need. Working for French television and busy traveling, she noticed a lack of functional laptop cases that were also stylish. She fabricated her own, which quickly parlayed into her now eponymous handbag line. Since then, she has collaborated with Theory, Steven Alan, Refinery 29, Commune, Wren, and Jasmin Shokrian. She attributes her sense of chic simplicity to her strong connection with France, where she spends a significant amount of time every year with her son and French documentarian husband, Thierry Vivier.

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. Clare Vivier’s design principle is timeless but her aesthetic is bold, always taking into consideration the elegant tension between modern detail and classic shapes.

While her bags are now available globally, Clare Vivier roots herself in the Los Angeles fashion community with a nod to socially conscious construction and proudly bears the moniker, “locally made”. From conception to fabrication, her line has been made eclusively in Los Angeles since 2008, consciously engaging in ethical manufacturing practice without compromise.
