Explore the style, design, function and cultural significance of bags from the 16th century to the present day, with Bags: Inside Out at the V&A.
From military rucksacks to designer purses, despatch boxes to vanity cases, rediscover some of the most iconic bags in recent history and learn about the craftsmanship of the ultimate accessory.
With around 300 objects on display, exhibition highlights include a red despatch box owned by Winston Churchill, a rhinestone-encrusted Fabergé Egg evening bag, a carefully restored Louis Vuitton travel trunk from the early 1900s and Margaret Thatcher’s iconic grey Asprey handbag.
