About the Exhibition

Bags: Inside Out
 is an exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A). The Asia inaugural tour will travel to Swire Properties' five retail centres in 2022 and 2023. The thematic exhibition examines the worldwide heritage of these highly covetable objects from the 16th century to today. From designer handbags, vanity cases to utilitarian rucksacks, the exhibition explores the function, status and craftsmanship of bags, and our longstanding fascination with this global obsession.
