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 Bag, CHANDELIER Crossbody Bag, DECO 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!
