When it comes to fashion, texture pretty much has me at hello. I’m especially susceptible to metal mesh…particularly when it comes in a handbags. And I’m not alone…as seen here on the arm of the mother of monsters herself, Lady Gaga:
I’ll have what she’s carrying–a bag from the experts, Whiting and Davis, making handbags since 1876. Here’s one of their bags from my closet, vintage 1960’s, that’s so so fresh with its structured lines and beyond hip oversized chain handle:
Whiting and Davis bags are not only keepsake worthy, but the current retro vibe going on in fashion makes it a perfect time to grab one of these babies and channel Emma Peel wearing a little something like this from Louie Vuitton’s Spring collection:
The prices on these bags are beyond reasonable, available online http://www.whitinganddavis.com/, and the vintage can be found in resale…so keep your eyes open.
Fashion Blogger Warning: the mesh has a luxury texture that will lead to heavy petting. I’m not responsible for what happens after that. Use responsibly.
