& Other Stories’ New Collab Is Made For West Coast Girls At Heart

Springtime means a lot of different things for our clothes: We shed layers, dress lighter, and gradually re-introduce color into our repertoire. That last one can be tricky, getting thrust into florals and prints after several gray (and navy and black) months. Thankfully, & Other Stories' latest collaboration is easing the transition this season. 
The Swedish retailer has recruited some seriously cool folk for its Co-Lab partnerships, from Lykke Li to Sadie Williams. This time around, it tapped previous collaborator handbag designer Clare Vivier. Inspired by the designer's neighborhood in L.A., the collection features bold colorblocking on perforated and smooth leather totes, crossbody bags, and pouches. Also, as a part of Clare V. x & Other Stories 2.0, the designer embarked on her first foray into footwear: a black perforated loafer that we're calling dibs on, like, now.
The collection lands in stores and online on March 5, but some lucky Angelenos got a first look last night at Steven Alan. Don't fret if you missed out; there's also a special pre-sale there from now until March 8, which leaves plenty of time to secure the bucket bag your closet's missing.
