Stepping into Fall with Nathalie Love

We teamed up with our friends at Steven Alan to shoot some of our favorite ladies in CV (you’ve probably already seen the dreamy pics of Matilde on our Insta). For Fall, we turned to LA girl-about-town, Nathalie Love, to model some of our favorite bags of the season. Here the actress/model gives good face to photog Jeana Sohn and makes us want each and every CV style she’s carrying. Get ready to fall in lovel! -Alexis


This beauty will always be in season. Nat holds tight to her Navy Petit Duff.


Daydreaming about CV. The Navy Nubuck Foldover does day-to-night double duty.


The Cream Petit Duff proves you can wear white after Labor Day – and it looks good.


The jumpsuit is having a major moment, and so is the British Tan Messenger.


The color is gorgeous for Fall.


The Trop is a CV classic and it just gets better with age. We have a feeling that Nat will be carrying hers year round.


Black Pebble Foldover – we love you longtime.

_MG_6819This is what we want to wear everyday this Fall. Cashmere, subtle floral print, riding boots and that classic navy nubuck messenger. Want.



CV Seen Around The Web

Every week we’re flattered by the love we get from some of our favorite ladies. From major leo love to the season’s latest styles, they always wear their CV in the most ingenious – and inspiring – ways. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite shots that we’ve seen around the web!  -Alexis

We had the privilege of hosting Damsel in Dior herself, Jacey Duprie, at CVHQ a few weeks back. She decided to take the Spotted Sandrine for a spin – and it looks like the perfect work to weekend bag on her.

We’re pretty much obsessed with all things J. Crew and Jenna Lyons. So when we saw their profile of Lucy Chadwick on their blog, with her cleverly clutching the Leo flat, we flipped. How brilliant is that styling?

This girl always gets it right. Jules makes white overalls look so good – and the Leo looks just right against all that white.

Ithaa from Ithaa the blog came into CVHQ to visit with Clare and she loved the CV spots. She couldn’t decide between the buff and navy minispots clutches.

Now this is our dream outfit. Sailor stripes, the most precious hat, pendant necklace and of course, the CV Madeleine Petit.

One of our favorite new mommy bloggers (and stylist of the Spring ’15 CV Lookbook), Sophie Assa of Eenie Meenie Bambini, is never without her black croco messenger. Check out her recent profile of Clare.

And this lovely New Yorker has always worn her CV so well. Here she is beating the Summer heat in NYC with her black and white striped flat clutch in hand. The best part? It’ll look just as good come Fall.

Behind The Scenes of the Spring ’15 Shoot

Just last week we teamed up with photographer Jeana Sohn to shoot the CV Spring ’15 lookbook. We ventured outside to a cool pool and courtside setting to match the sportier themes of the collection – and catch the best shots of CV model, the gorgeous Hayley Magnus. We couldn’t wait to share the behind-the-scenes snaps you won’t find anywhere else. Countdown to Spring starts now!

This pretty much sums it all up. Sporty vibes captured on film for our shoot. Sophie Assa styled Hayley with the new Kenya on her arm.

Swimming lessons are in order with this printed clutch poolside. This French phrase is the latest addition to the CV line.

Next, the shoot moved onto a tennis court. Here, Hayley looks pretty in pink, set amongst a spattering of tennis balls while grasping onto our new net print clutch.

The anthracite foldover is the perfect complement to Hayley’s pretty, preppy look. Liberty prints + Nikes = perfection.

And of course at the end of the day everyone let loose. Hayley practices her balancing act with her tennis ball fanny worn over her prim white tennis look.

Excitement was at a fever pitch right before the launch last week. We were busy at CVHQ getting the Clare V. shop up and running, featuring some of our favorite picks – and exciting exclusives.


We collaborated with CV friend and LA native Jenni Kayne on a cute canvas Wallet Clutch with a liberty stripe that was exclusive to SPRING. This special design is flying off the shelves!


We also created this beauty! The ‘Spring Is Here’ Flat Clutch helped kick things off for the app, and we loved seeing it pop up in some of our favorite blogger’s feeds.


How good is this shot @WeWoreWhat shared of her new CV for SPRING clutch?

The Clare V. x Steven Alan Sunnies are Here!

The future is bright for Clare V., which is why we’ve teamed up with our friends at Steven Alan to create a custom collection of sunglasses just in time for Summer. This exciting collaboration is a unique reflection of both brands and got the exclusive scoop straight from Clare. From the retro shapes to the cheery colors that scream CV, they’re a really refreshing option. We had a few of our favorite ladies, Clare, Sophie and Chloe, model some of the frames, which are now available in both CV stores and on Get a look at some of our favorite ways to wear them! -Alexis


The best undone look we can imagine: Soph in the Cap Ferrat shades that no CV bag should be without.


Clare modeled her favorite Cap Ferrats right outside CVHQ. We adore this shot of her and a few of her favorite things: iPhone, espresso, Smythson notebook and Clare V. x Steven Alan sunnies.


Soph shows us how to wear the Nice right into Fall with a tough moto jacket and a Steven Alan button-down layered underneath.


Chloe put on the Calais sunglasses in Tomate as soon as they hit the studio. We think they happen to pair perfectly with her CV Bonjour Tee.


And here’s Soph again in her Cap Ferrat sunglasses with a bit of a floral backdrop for effect. Check out her Oui tee too, one of the latest styles available for sale.

CV was shot at a cafe in NY in her bleu and rouge Cap Ferrat sunnies – so chic!

502A6558We asked Sophie to take the Calais for a spin, and show us just how good they look in the pot du creme shade. The lighter, brighter color feels just right.
