When it comes to chic leather goods, Clare Vivier is an expert. She started her eponymous line in 2008 after she noticed a gap in the market for chic laptop cases. Inspired by the laid-back style of Los Angeles, where she lives, and the classic glamour of Paris, where she spends part of her year, her line of leather goods is the perfect marriage of utility and elegance. Since every woman needs a leather accessories wardrobe, we asked Clare to give us her must-haves.
Leather Accessories Wardrobe
"This is a shape that every woman should have. It’s perfect for hauling your laptop to work or holding all of your everyday necessities. The color is a dreamy summer shade."
"The dot clutch has a hand-painted design that feels happy and carefree. It’s even cuter with a monogram or a word printed on it."
"I love the simple shape and pop of color. It definitely makes going through airport security a little bit more fun."
"The color works perfectly with white jeans that I plan to wear well into summer time."
"The Matilde can be worn on the shoulder as a tote or folded over as a large clutch. The combination of the Mexican print fabric with white leather screams summer to me."
Hands Free Pouch
"The aqua fanny pack is going to be my hands-free bag this summer. I'll style it with shirt dresses or shorts for running around to farmers and flea markets or spending a day at the beach with my son."
"The Jane is small enough to carry your phone, credit card case and lip gloss, and not so bulky as to feel weighed down when you are out and about."
