When one designer we love launches a boutique, it’s news. But when two of our favorite L.A.-based designers join forces to create a local shopping destination, it’s a B.I.G. deal. This weekend, she of the perfect day clutches, Clare Vivier, and Kathyrn Bentley, the woman responsible for some of our absolute favorite day-in, day-out jewelry have finally debuted their first boutique, aptly named Vivier and Bentley. The store is not only stocked with handbags, totes, and clutches aplenty, but is also brimming with some of the greatest jewels we’ve already got on our summer wish-list. And to celebrate such a momentous opening, the two ladies (and hoards of other stylish L.A. lasses in tow) came out to play on Saturday evening. If you want a behind-the-scenes peek at what the party people wore and bought, make sure you click through our epic slideshow covering the festivities. And don’t forget to high-tail it to their store and site for Refinery29’s exclusive one-day-only flash sale, plus a super-sweet clutch giveaway and a one-day-only 25% discount off the entire store!
Tell us in the comments of the story how you'd style your new Vivier clutch and the answer that has us most impressed will win a sweet new summer bag!
