Clare Vivier is expanding her line of women’s accessories and translating its French-meets-Los Angeles aesthetic into a new men’s line. The new additions — which include items ranging from dopp kits ($65 to $110), wallets ($159) and document holders ($156) to passport holders ($97) and totes ($478) — will be sold on her Web site as well as at Bird retail stores in New York.
The line, Vivier said, is a natural extension for her business. After launching in 2008 and setting up retail stores in Silverlake, Calif., and on Elizabeth Street in New York, the designer said men began asking her to create a line that was a little more masculine. “It was actually my husband who really asked me for it that made me go, OK, now is the time,” she said.
