Clare V, 239 Elizabeth Street, $165-$195; clarevivier.com

Long before zip pouches became the must-have accessory, China Chow told me about Clare Vivier, an L.A accessories designer who made great ones in a range of colors and materials. I’ve been a fan ever since—and consequently can’t wait to raid Clare’s new shop in NoLiTa where you can also have the bags monogrammed while you wait.
