Craft coffee, chic sunglasses, and our new fall Foldover Tote: three ingredients for a perfect day! Fashion blogger Shall We Sasa recently snapped this pic of our new Foldover Tote and captured the essence of its day-to-evening versatility. Whether worn as a foldover clutch, ring handle tote bag or crossbody bag, this statement piece elevates any outfit. We love this new handbag and hope you do too!

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

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.



Whiting&Davis vintage look handbag

I was looking through my collection of 20s and 30s Whiting & Davis bags for something really special to post for Throwback Thursday this week and came across this one.  It's not exactly vintage, though... It's actually one of the first bags I designed for Whiting & Davis back in 2001... wow.  Time has flown!  I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with this effort.  The design was painstakingly engineered to follow exactly along the edge of the bag and even meet neatly at the sides- I remember driving the sample makers nuts about that!  The Art Deco style frame was an original Whiting & Davis frame from the 20s that we had remade and it perfectly suits the graphic  Starburst design. All in all a lovely bag.

We don't do as many vintage style bags as we used to with the trend toward more clean, architectural lines in fashion, but I hope the renewed interest in vintage flapper styles that the Great Gatsby movie has unleashed results in more demand for these types of bags.  I'd love to do more of them.
