Clare V. x Steven Alan: Model Q&A

  • It’s always a pleasure to team up with handbag designer and good friend Clare Vivier, whether it’s for a special edition bag, a monogramming trunk show, or a sunglasses collection (coming soon). Our latest opportunity for a collaboration was a Clare V. x Steven Alan photo shoot in LA, featuring some of our favorite bag styles. Resident CV model Matilde stars in the summer campaign, and we got fall model Nathalie Love to interview her just in time to kick off the season with Memorial Day weekend.

    What will you be wearing this Summer?
    This summer it’s going to be about undergarments. I am collecting swimsuits and teddies that you can just put a short on over. I also wear slips and silk-lined dresses, in colors, transparent or black and white. I’ll also be wearing this cute Hawaiian dress.

    Which Clare V. bag do you covet most?
    I’m really into the new black shearling Saddle Bag for Fall. I love the contrast of a wintry, furry bag in LA. And of course I have my white Madeleine which kinda makes me feel like Paris Hilton.

    The white Petit Duffle

    What are your favorite places to shop in LA or NY?
    My friend was right about Jet Rag on Sundays. LA is just amazing for all kind of cheap treasures. I guess NY is more about just wandering around.

    What are your summer vacation plans?
    I’m going to Europe to visit family and friends, to Italy and Belgium. Then Venice, CA sounds good, too.

    Your perfect summer day would entail . . .
    Wake up early, go for a hike, read and take time to be creative. Have friends over for dinner outside. Walking in the busy hot streets at night when I’m in Europe.

    What’s your favorite summertime meal?
    A big fresh salad, with fruits and vegetables all mixed up and some cheese on top.

    What’s your favorite summer memory?
    When we were younger with my cousins, I would teach them choreography and they would perform it in front of the family by the pool!! I have to find the videotapes!

    Many thanks to Matilde! You can find Clare V. handbags and leather goods at all of our stores and in our web shop. Stay tuned for our next model-on-model feature when we turn the tables and Nathalie talks all things fall with Matilde.
