Since 2006, Clare V. is a collection of bags that embodies timeless style over trend, quality over hype, and progress over abstraction. Clare was a journalist working for French television when she was traveling a lot with her laptop and for lack of anything stylish in the marketplace, fabricated her own good looking padded envelope. Out of that search for bags with chic utility came Clare V. The line is manufactured in Los Angeles, and proudly bears the moniker “locally made”.
Clare V. is a socially conscious company, mindful of the local manufacturing community for the jobs it produces and the low carbon footprint the company inhabits. Clare lives in Los Angeles with her son and French documentarian husband Thierry. They spend a significant amount of time in France every year and all Clare V. bags carry Clare’s signature style of classic necessity with a nod to timeless French designers. Clare has designed bags for and collaborated with many high-end design companies like: Commune Design, Jasmin Shokrian, the Viceroy Hotels and Mannin Jewelry.
