More Clare Vivier news: after six years of solely catering to the globe's most stylish women, the LA-based purveyor of perfectly chic bags and accessories is finally launching a men's collection. Offering a masculine twist on the French-inspired items we know and love from her Silver Lake flagship, the new range will feature wallets ($159), passport holders ($97), dopp kits ($65-$110), document holders ($158) and totes ($478).
"I grew up with four brothers, so I really get what men want and what they look for," Vivier tells WWD. "It's all about being easy, without anything complicated but with great quality." Although well-dressed dudes have liking been asking for a line for years, the designer reveals that it was her husband who finally pushed her to go for it.
No word yet on the official launch date, but just know that the goods will feature "muted brass and silver zippers," as CV reveals. We're hoping monogramming will be offered, too!
