CV On The Move

As the Eastsider blog recently reported, we've moved studios! Just two doors down from our old store front, we've temporarily moved our studio into our future flagship Clare Vivier storefront. 
 It's a beautiful, light-filled corner location in Silverlake, I'm so excited to be working here.
However, there are a few drawbacks to working in light filled spaces: from approximately 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. I cannot really work at my computer. A little issue of window coverings has yet to be addressed. 
As you can see we are still in full set-up phase, but here's my desk, which faces out into the room and the work table covered with leather and 
 inspiration pictures for upcoming collections.
 Still lifes around the space include our little hemp twine, rope and webbing collection.
 A few lovely books on the drive-me-crazy-cute-green shelves.
 Boxes are still being sorted through but everyone's hard at work. Opps! We need one more chair, it's true.  Poor Ted!
 Art work has yet to be hung, photo shoots happen on paper on the floor - work goes on, even in chaos.
When night falls, the palm trees are beautiful against the azure blue sky...I'm so happy working in this space as a studio, but it is going to be an amazing store.

Congrats! How exciting to grow like this, and have a crazy awesome new space too boot. I just bought one of your beautiful bags, right before I found out I am visiting LA next month, so I guess I will have to stop in and buy another one! Ummm when are those leopard numbers gonna be ready?

Have you thought about trying some type of computer screen film like a polarized plastic to cut the glare? I have seen similar on planes to keep wandering neighbor eyes from seeing important documents in flight and they simply clipped on and off. LOVE the snail art. Local artist? Green shelves as well. love the petite messenger in orange. Any stores in SF area? If in town let mw know. I would love to have a gathering in silicon valley to share your products. xo
