The Clare V. Bags Story

The idea for starting the line of Clare V. bags came when founder Clare Vivier had a job but couldn’t find a decent work bag, one that didn’t look too corporate-y in its black nylon. The first Clare V. bag design was a simple leather tote she called La Tropezienne, which combined beautiful vegetable-tanned leather with elegant, durable construction. The result was a timeless Clare V. bag that only improves with age. The La Tropezienne is so understated, it’s easy to miss. But once this Clare V. bag draws your attention, you’ll wonder how you ever overlooked it in the first place. It easily becomes the favorite go-to Clare V. bag in anyone’s collection.
