Peak holiday shopping season is upon us! We’re asking some of our favorite tastemakers to share what they’re giving and getting this year, as well as how they’re giving back. Todd Barket of Unionmade Goods showcased his specific brand of relaxed elegance, yogi Tara Stiles shared her thoughtful picks; now we have Clare Vivier of the timelessly classic Clare V. handbag line letting us in on her tasteful picks. Clare’s handbags are flying off the shelves and her new holiday bags are sure to as well. With new e-commerce partnerships and a brand new store on trendy Elizabeth Street in New York, she’s busy as ever with no signs of slowing down. Read on for her holiday favorites including Love Adorned, Steven Alan, Thomas Sires and of course Clare V…
