Anthropologie has a long history of collaborating with both up and coming designers and those who have succeeded in establishing their brand in the mainstream. Their latest partnership brings a California meets vacations in France vibe to products from clothing to accessories and home decor. Clare Vivier, a top designer of luxury leather goods, started her brand in 2006 after a failed search for the perfect leather tote. Today, the Simple Tote is available in countless colors and materials, and features the signature contrast stripe that reminds us of the French flag.
We will get more in to our obsession with Clare V. bags in a minute, but exploring this collaboration and the venture in to home goods is just the kind of unfussy, whimsical joy that our homes and our lives need right now. Leave it to the French to remind us not to take life and decor too seriously.
And because we all love a great bag, check out our favorites from Clare V.
