Busy working for French television and traveling, Clare Vivier noticed a lack of functional laptop cases that were also stylish, so she fabricated her own, which quickly parlayed into her now eponymous handbag line. 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 family. Vivier 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.
