Handbag designer Clare Vivier has amassed widespread appeal for her fusion of classic French glamour and minimalist California cool. Her famed pouches and envelope clutches (some plain, others stamped with bold prints or sayings) have found fans in stars, street style icons, and, well, us. And she's bringing all of that to Swedish retailer & Other Stories with a second collaboration.
"We’re delighted to work with Clare again," says Sara Hildén Bengtsson, & Other Stories creative director. "Her collection is sophisticated yet bold, bringing a piece of that elusive and charming California essence to our customers."

The Co-Lab collection by Clare Vivier comprises perforated drawstring totes, color-block pouches, bright wallets, and a perforated loafer slipper (her first-ever shoe!). To illustrate the Californian cool aesthetic, Vivier recruited three of her friends—sisters Mamie, Grace, and Louisa Gummer—to model the collection in her ad campaign, shot by photog Stephen Shore. "They are my dream customers," Vivier says. "Creative, hardworking, stylish, city girls."
In other words, we want everything. The collection ($195 for the tote, $120 for the shoulder bag, $55 for the pouch, $39 for the wallet, and $11 for the nail color) is currently available exclusively at stevenalan.com from now until March 8, and it will be available at all & Other Stories stores and stories.com starting March 5.
