‘Bags: Inside Out’ Showcases History of Bags at Pacific Place this Summer
June 27, 2023
This summer, get immersed in the exciting world of bags with a spectacular exhibition, with a collection lifted straight from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Themed ‘Bags: Inside Out,’ the showcase boasts over 240 unique objects that span across the 16th century to the present day.
Diving into the fascinating history of one of the world's most beloved accessories, the three key parts of the exhibit look at a handbag’s Function and Utility, its representation of Status and Identity – which features culturally significant bags that became symbols of style and power – and the artistry behind the Design and Making of bags.
Attendees will come face to face with iconic items in fashion history, such as Sarah Jessica Parker's Fendi 'Baguette' used in Sex and the City, and Princess Diana's 'Lady Dior' by Christian Dior. Homegrown celeb Kelly Chen has also curated 13 bags from her private collection to showcase at the exhibition.
Granting guests an intimate look at the crafting process behind some of today's most luxurious bags, a guided tour is on offer for anyone interested in getting a closer look, with sign-ups available here.
