AWARDS SEASON

Tuesday 01.23.18

Awards season is here and while most are trying to get acquainted with all the nominated shows, movies and players, the nominees and their stylists are busy putting together the perfect outfit.  And we absolutely LOVE seeing what ends up on the red carpet!  The flashing lights, the gowns, the accessories...oh the accessories!  Peak fabulousness and we're all about it.

So when Gayle King shows up wearing our fave bag on her bestie's big night, it's definitely a thrilling moment.  (Above pic: Gayle King at the Golden Globes 2018 wearing Serpent Structured Clutch.)  Excuse us while we pose our predetermined best side and wave to the cameras!

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.

CALEXICO'S SPRING SUMMER CAMPAIGN

Friday 04.03.15

Did you know that our handbags double as both tops and statement necklaces? Neither did we! I am absolutely LOVING this stylish shot of our Quilted Chevrons Clutch from Brisbane boutique Calexico Australia's new spring summer campaign. Sure beats a classic product shot, don't you think?

SERPENTS MINAUDIERE

Wednesday 11.12.14

The new Serpents Minaudiere is our latest take on the Whiting & Davis snake legacy and we absolutely love it, don't you? Turning heads from here to Australia (where this stunning closeup was taken by the stylish crew at Brisbane boutique Calexico Australia), this exotic clutch is seen here with Katie Rowland rings and can be dressed up or down for wherever the evening takes you.

Island Vibe

Wednesday 07.09.14

Our new Palms Crossbody Bag is a tropical vacation in a bag. The palm tree print gives an island vibe to any outfit, from jeans and a tee to something more formal. Our design director took the bag with her last weekend on a weekend trip to Hawaii and this right here is the look of a bag in its element. If only I could have fit in her suitcase too!

Versatile handbags like this are perfect for traveling light - use it to hold travel essentials like your boarding pass and ID in your carry on before takeoff, wear it as a crossbody bag for some stylish sight seeing, then remove the chain to carry it as a clutch to dinner at the resort.

Golden Hour

gold metal mesh clutch bag
Friday 03.01.13

Just a sneak peek pic from this week's photshoot for our upcoming website revamp featuring one of our most iconic gold clutches (aka SHIRRED COSMETIC BAG- but we're just as likely to carry this for date night as we are to stuff it with lip gloss and eyeliner).  Golden bag + golden light + golden girl = STUNNING.
