VINTAGE INSPIRED

Tuesday 06.16.15

In the long history of Whiting & Davis, there have been many types of metal mesh. Among others in our archives, you'll find ring mesh bags from the 1890s, super fine Dresden mesh handbags from the 1920s, alumesh purses in the 1940s, and, one of my personal favorites, large 8mm tile mesh styles from the 1960s. Our design team has reintroduced this large tile mesh in a few new designs including our Brandy Crossbody Bag (pictured) and Brandy Convertible Bag, as well as our two new Mega Mesh styles (featured in my last blog post). I absolutely love the stripe of raw brass 8mm tile mesh down the center of this edgy pyramid mesh bag. To me, that subtle hint of inspiration evokes all the right vibes of vintage style and rock n roll. Pair it with a leather moto jacket and sunglasses. Would also be amazing with a vintage concert tee and ripped jeans or cut offs (hello festival style). I can imagine all kinds of rocker chic looks for this bag, and will hopefully wear them all. It even makes a stylish clutch for something more upscale. LOVE.

MALIBU BEACH BAG

Tuesday 04.14.15

I just returned from the most beautiful weekend in Malibu. Perfect beach weather! Fortunately my friends and I came prepared with great sunnies, surfboards, beach towels, sunscreen and, last but not least, my new Whiting & Davis Spring Summer 2015 Mega Mesh Convertible Crossbody Bag! I love this bag. Not only does it come in colors that announce "SPRING SUMMER" (shout out to the turquoise and yellow), it's just the most effortlessly chic, versatile bag. I like it as a crossbody bag, but those who favor shoulder bags can simply double the chain and voila. From starting the day with green juice and acai bowls (gotta love breakfast in LA) to craft cocktails at the Ace Hotel, to dancing the night away in Hollywood, this bag does just the trick. Not to mention the vintage-inspired oversized metal mesh in enamel finish... swoon.

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.
