Founder Clare Vivier's frustration at the lack of functional yet stylish laptop cases while she was working as a journalist for French television led her to create her own line of handbags and accessories. She has cultivated an identifiable aesthetic that's all her own, creating a collection of playful yet functional leather handbags, accessories, and the highly covetable Clare V. clutches, which are recognized worldwide by influencers, tastemakers, celebrities, and bloggers. Clare’s strong connection to France, where she spends a significant amount of time each year with her French husband and son, remains at the core of the brand. A beautiful play on classic shapes, modern detail and Parisian charm, the Clare V. line continues to evolve with each new collection. While the brand has continued to grow, the line continues to be manufactured start to finish exclusively in Los Angeles since 2008. Shop Clare V.
