V&A museum exhibition: inside out of the bags
The Victoria & Albert museum, London, Bags: Inside Out exhibition explores virtually every aspect of fashion design ― functionality, craftsmanship, style, and status ― involved in the rich history of the OG essential accessory: the bag.
The 300-piece display features prominent styles dating back for centuries, all the way up to today's top "it bags" from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Hermes, Off-White and more. The exhibition provides far beyond an impressive display, serving as a comprehensive guide through the timeless accessory's diverse roles ― from pure utilitarianism to lavish status symbol.
Expect to see today's top must-haves from Birkin bags to Louis V luggage, iconic pieces representing cultural legends like Grace Kelly and Princess Diana, and long lost bags through history with distinct purpose ― all packaged in the highest quality materials like leather which have withstood the test of time.
Although temporarily closed, the exhibition will be on display up until September 12, 2021 ― located in Gallery 40 with or a £12.00 admissions fee for non-members of the museum. Advanced booking is recommended for their opening hours, Wednesday – Sunday, 10:00 – 17:00.
More must-have pieces from the OG to the up-and-coming are waiting here.
