When I was younger, there was nothing that I loved more than rifling through my mother’s jewellery box and parading around with one of her many handbags. My favourite? A white metal mesh purse with a thin strap, that I would fill with bobbles, mum’s lipsticks, and multiple outfit changes for my Barbie.

Twenty years later, and these bags are set to make a revival, following the relaunch of heritage brand Glomesh in 2013; with shoulder bags, clutches and wallets reminiscent of coveted styles during the 60s and 70s. My personal favourite? The vintage clasp style purses that bears a striking resemblance to the one I used to play with when I was younger – a no brainer if you ask me. Available exclusively in-store at David Jones (and online!), the current range embodies one of the trends for the upcoming winter – metallics. Stirring up feelings of nostalgia, the metal mesh bags retain much of their original aesthetic albeit with a modern twist; and a little like reliving those memories of your youth, everything gets better with age.

    Love the clothes! Especially the first picture, the combination of ripped boyfriend jeans and classic feminine pieces like the heels and blazer is so chic! And the lace dress? In love, so sophisticated!
