In honor of its 20th birthday, the swanky Santa Monica hotel partners with L.A.'s accessories designer du jour on a summery canvas carry-all.


As of late, Silver Lake.-based accessories designer Clare Vivier has become the go-to leather goods purveyor for fashion editors, stylists and starlets alike (Emma Roberts, Katie Holmes and Amy Poehler are all fans). And now, she's helping Santa Monica's Shutters Hotel celebrate its 20th birthday with a limited-edition beach bag perfect for days near water and on dry land, alike. 

The canvas carry all comes in Shutters' yellow and white color scheme and is big enough to hold your SPF, snacks, requisite trashy beach novel and, of course, a copy of The Hollywood Reporter. As an added bonus, the bag comes with a detachable mini-version of the fold over leather clutch that serves as Vivier's signature.

The French-born designer, who launched her line in 2006 after she couldn't find a properly stylish computer sleeve, is the third label to participate in the hotel's collaborative beach bag program, following Kate Spade in 2012 and Joie in 2011. 

The set, which retails for $220, is available exclusively at
