Behind The Scenes

Clare Vivier Takes Us Vintage Shopping

Please accept the photo above as proof that the L.A.-based handbag designer Clare Vivier is an adept vintage shopper. “I didn’t even look at the label on this trench coat when I bought it. Then I got it home and saw that it was Bonnie Cashin for Sills, a line that’s no longer available,” Clare explains. She was kind enough to share her three go-to stores—two in her neck of the woods and one back in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she did most of her growing up.My Sister’s Closet“It’s in a house on a shopping street in St. Paul, and it’s basically a consignment shop for wealthy older people—so you see some really great labels. I’ve gotten a few YSL blouses recently and that Bonnie Cashin trench.”(1136 Grand Ave., St. Paul, 651-222-2819; mysistersclosetmn.com)The kind of jacket that makes any outfit stand out, from Luxe De Ville.Luxe De Ville“Luxe De Ville is around the corner from my house in Echo Park—it’s kind of like my closet. I go there the day of an event, and the owner pulls things for me I would never have tried on. He doesn’t have a lot of labels, but he has a great eye. It’s like I have a personal stylist.”(2157 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, 213-353-0135; luxedeville.com)Kick-ass boots from The Way We Wore.The Way We Wore“It’s high-end, and the owner, Doris Raymond, has a 50% off sale every year, which is a huge thing because she has so much great stuff. I got the most beautiful snakeskin platform boots from her.”(334 S. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, 323-937-0878; thewaywewore.com) Clare’s new edition is out of this world good—get yours before it’s gone!

Clare Vivier's Very Favorite Places in Silverlake

Clare Vivier practically owns her L.A. neighborhood: She has lived in Silverlake for a decade (yup, early adopter) and has her own store there. Basically, if you need someone to show you the ropes, she’s your girl, and she was kind enough to play tour guide. Taix“Taix is a really old-school French restaurant—the interior hasn’t changed in 30 years, and the waiters have been there forever. I love to eat steak frites in the bar area.” (taixfrench.com)Intelligentsia“It’s just the best coffee. I usually get an espresso, and they serve it with a little glass of sparkling water. I think that’s really cute.” (intelligentsiacoffee.com)Forage“My very favorite restaurant is Forage. I eat there at least once a week and order the kale and arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette and toasted breadcrumbs on top.” (foragela.com)Mohawk General Store“I got a pair of silver Rachel Comey loafers there last year, and I feel like she should release them again because I get so many compliments on them! There’s a Raquel Allegra coat in a nubby, boiled wool that I want right now.” (mohawkgeneralstore.net)Cookbook“This is a super cute little market on Echo Park Avenue. Any time you don’t have an idea of what to cook, they’ll help you figure it out. It seems like a small store with a small selection, but they’ll be like, ‘Oh! Just take this arugula, this mint, and peas…’ Which is nice—to have your selection totally slimmed down.” (cookbookla.com) Clare is back with a bang—see her newest edition here.
