Earlier this year, Minimalist Clutch Patron Saint Clare Vivier announced that she was teaming up with & Other Stories on a line of under-$250 handbags, set to launch at the H&M-backed line's Soho flagship in March. And now—on this, the second-to-last day of February—the collection is already here! At...Steven Alan? Okay. Sure.
Yes, Clare Vivier's pal somehow got first dibs on the collaboration, which is full of perforated bucket bags ($135), drawstring backpacks ($195), and office-ready totes ($225) in black, navy, cream, and kelly green. But while select pieces are available on Steven Alan's website and in his Nolita store, we're pretty sure he didn't score the whole lineup. Back in January, WWD reported that the collection would include nail polishes and loafers, neither of which seem to be available online just yet. Your move, & Other Stories.
