Cup of Jo x Clare V. Collection

Today, we’re so excited to share a collaboration with you! We’ve long admired Clare V., the Los Angeles-based brand that makes beautiful handbags and accessories. (I’ve had a trusty Clare V. wallet for years, and their friendly Brooklyn store is on the same block as our office.) Each piece is a work of art that only gets better with age. So, this fall, we teamed up with them to create four timeless pieces that we’ve always wanted, and we really hope you love them…

This super soft sweatshirt says “girlfriends first” in French! It looks so cute for weekend adventures, and it’s 100% organic cotton, with an easy, pre-shrunk fit for layering. It would make a great gift for friends, colleagues, sisters, aunts, moms and any other comrades that make life feel sweet. Update: The sweatshirt sold out, but a new run is now available for pre-sale. We also were able to add more sizes, XL and XXL, and in future collaborations will be adding many more. Thank you so much.

My personal favorite of the collection might be Le Big Sac. The buttery Italian cowhide only gets softer with age, and the side snaps can adjust its size (small for everyday, big for travel!). It’s the perfect sidekick for work, dinner hangs, trips, or a day around town, and I’d love to wear it forever. Update: The bag sold out, but a new run is now available for pre-sale.

How cute is this personality-packed circle clutch? The zipper adds a pop of red. It comes with a crossbody strap, or it can be worn by its top handle (like above). The shape makes even the simplest outfits look cool, and it’s big enough to fit all those everyday essentials.

Meet a trusty companion to any bag or set of perpetually lost keys: the heart fob. It makes me smile every time I see it, and it makes it a million times easier to fish keys out of a bag.

For this Cup of Jo collaboration, we’re honored to work with a woman-owned company with ethical production, made in Los Angeles, that makes pieces that last forever. They’re the highest quality, and we hope you love them. We’ll be having more collaborations in the future — with different brands, different products, different price points — and hope everyone will find something they like among them.

Find the full limited-edition collection here, if you’d like. We’re excited to share it with you. Thank you so much for everything, as always. xoxo
