Whiting and Davis Striped Blouse
Brand Whiting and Davis
Iconic late 70s, early 80s Whiting and Davis chainmail mesh blouse on deck!
This outstanding, wonderfully constructed and HEAVY chainmail / mesh blouse stands apart as a slightly more unique Whiting and Davis blouse design. More common from this period are the solid gold tone blouses or the tie-back halter tops (also usually done in a gold tone) but here we have a black blouse, with contrasting copper, silver and gold chevron detail along the neck.
The blouse has a relaxed short sleeves and v-neckline.
The top is somewhat roomy, cut straight with no taper at the waist, allowing the blouse to hang and drape on the body, the chainmail material sparkling with every move.
This blouse is also special in that it's previous owner decided to add a sheer black lining to the interior, making the piece more comfortable and wearable for an extended period of time.
Top is a pull-over style with no additional closures.
