‘Bags: Inside Out’ is an exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A). The Inaugural Asian Tour travelled to our retail centres in 2022 and 2023, including Taikoo Li Sanlitun, Beijing; Taikoo Li Qiantan, Shanghai; Taikoo Hui Guangzhou and Taikoo Li Chengdu.
This summer, ‘Bags: Inside Out’ made its grand finale at Pacific Place, Hong Kong from 16 June through 16 July 2023. Curated by Dr Lucia Savi, ‘Bags: Inside Out’ celebrates all things bags with an extraordinary display of 240 unique objects spanning the 16th century to present day. 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.
Exclusively for the Hong Kong exhibition, celebrated singer and actress Kelly Chen, a passionate bag collector, showcases 13 bags from her impressive collection over two decades.
In addition to what’s on display, Pacific Place has curated bespoke guided tours, makers workshops, a 'Bag the Spotlight' 360-degree video booth alongside this immersive showcase.
