The Cut’s Advent Calendar Gift Guide: Counting down to Christmas with one guaranteed-to-please gift idea every day.
Leopard is a neutral, and now it’s become so ubiquitous that it’s not even a statement. Enter snakeskin as the new gotta-have-it print. Which makes this Clare V. bag a good bet whether you’re looking for a gift for your coolest, most fashion-forward friend or looking for the right link to send to your partner/best friend/generous family member as a hint.
Both the bag’s fabric and the shape fall into the “trendy, but not mainstream for another year” category. It’s from French designer Clare Vivier, who knows her way around an it-bag. The slouchy structure looks like something a fancy grandma gave to a consignment shop that was later found by an influencer. It’s big enough to be practical and hold everything you need for a day, while looking like a bag you could take to a holiday party. Plus, it’s 40% off.
