INTRODUCING THE HERITAGE COLLECTION

Saturday 07.16.16

Whiting & Davis is the oldest handbag company in the U.S., and 2016 marks 140 years in business! To celebrate, we have designed a very special Heritage Collection of limited edition handbags for Fall 2016 that we are very excited to share with you. Based on some of our favorite vintage and antique Whiting & Davis designs from decades past, the Heritage Collection is comprised of five elegant yet contemporary new styles: the new VICTORIAN STRIPE Crossbody BagCHANDELIER Crossbody BagDECO CRYSTAL POINT Evening Bag, SKYLINE Crossbody Bag, and my personal favorite, the POIRET POUCH.

To celebrate our 140th Anniversary and the launch of this exciting new limited edition collection, we recently hosted a retrospective exhibit at Lady Mendl's Tea Salon in NYC, where editors, bloggers and friends gathered to admire dozens of our most iconic antique and vintage designs alongside the new Heritage Collection handbags they inspired. It was a thrill to host such a fun, fashionable event, and to demonstrate the ways we have evolved these classic styles for today's contemporary taste and lifestyle (for starters, they all fit the iPhone 6 Plus!). We're so excited to celebrate this huge milestone and hope you enjoy the new collection. Cheers!

THROWBACK THURSDAY

Thursday 08.27.15

Because it's a Thursday, we're throwing it back to the Roaring Twenties when we made this Princess Mary bag, which currently hangs in our design room. Can't you imagine it on the arm of a 1920s flapper beauty, fringe swinging every which way? It certainly fits right into my imagination of a glamorous Great Gatsby party scene. The intricate metal mesh on this beautiful antique bag looks so fine and delicate yet here it is, still going strong nearly a century later! And how gorgeous is the chainlink detailing at the bottom? What a stunner!

New Snake Head Crossbody Bag

Friday 01.17.14

Sssssss! Get bitten by our new Snake Head bags, featuring the classic Whiting & Davis snake head as the zipper pull! Whiting & Davis vintage handbag lovers will recognize this zipper pull as the latest in our brand's legacy of iconic serpents, dating back to the 1890s. We are very excited about the release of this new Snake Head Convertible Crossbody Bag (and its sister, the new Snake Head Shoulder Bag) as the latest in the legacy.
