Now that it's officially 2017, we would like to wish you the happiest year ahead, chock full of festive reasons to pull out your sparkliest bag and shine your brightest. Live a little louder and give a little more of yourself each day. My first resolution is to ditch my boring makeup routine and match my eyes to my Whiting & Davis bag with this golden eye makeup look. Lauren As if we needed any more reasons to love Michelle Obama, the ultra classy First Lady wore head-to-toe metal mesh at the Obama administration's 13th and final state dinner. In reference to the evening’s guests of honor, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini, the First Lady stunned in a glamorous floor-length rose gold metal mesh gown from everyone's favorite Italian fashion house, Atelier Versace.
Production of metal mesh halted during WWII to assist with the war effort.Before your first purchase, you should cruise the internet, antique stores and shows to get a feeling of the styles and colors that appeal to you.Mesh purses are as personal as any other type of purse.In 1912, a process for machine made mesh was developed and Whiting and Davis purchased the patent.This process cut the cost of a bag dramatically, so that mesh bags were available to the mass market.The Whiting & Davis application for trademark indicates they make "Metal Mesh Bags, comprised Wholly or in part of metal that is not precious, in All sizes and forms, both soldered and woven mesh." They give July 29, 1921 as the first use of their logo. The cancellation of the trademark is dated June 21, 2003.
