Clare Vivier is the founder of Clare V., a handbag and accessories line born and made in Los Angeles and known around the world. After noticing a lack of functional yet stylish laptop cases while working as a journalist for French television, she decided to create her own. Since that time, the iconic indie brand has become synonymous with classic shapes, modern details, and Parisian charm. Clare now operates seven stores across the country, is a member of the CFDA, and has collaborated with the likes of Apple, Steven Alan, and Goop. She currently resides in Silverlake with her husband and son, Oscar.
