Hello lovely people, welcome back to a new fashion blog in 2021. It has been a while since I have been to an exhibition, so when I saw this exhibition about bags recently, I had to go.
As some of you will know, I am quite a bag lover. I love well-executed bags from leather. [They are just a dream to have and to feel] It does not always have to be from a luxury brand, but seeing all kinds of beautiful handbags in this exhibition is just a sight for sore eyes. Not only will you see these beautiful handbags displayed. You will learn more about the process of how a leather handbag has been build from scratch to finishing product. The exhibition is sponsored by Mulberry.
For more details on how to get a ticket or information about the exhibition, go here. If you haven’t been yet, it is still possible to go until Sunday, 16 January 2022 at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
The exhibition starts with a bit of history of the purpose of a bag. The beginning of the exhibition is a great way to get you introduced to the evolution of bags. From what I understood, the beginning started with utility bags for men. Slowly bags were made for different purposes, for example, a bag for medicine.
Displays and settings
There are two floors in use at this exhibition. You will find some famous luxury bags from almost every luxury company.
Below a compilation of what you will find in the exhibition.
I think the top floor is the best part. Here is displayed the complete process of how a handbag is made by hand. You will see all materials they use and how they start by making a prototype.
Here are some of the iconic handbags and luxury brands I liked while growing up. If you haven’t been to the exhibition yet, give it a go. it will be there till the beginning of 2022. Since you are already in the V&A, explore other parts of the museum for free… you will not regret it.
