The Museum of Bags Amsterdam has been busy spring cleaning. Doors and windows are being opened wide to let a breath of fresh air blow through the House. A new season, a fresh start. The perfect moment to begin research into our own ‘nature’.
With Bags in Bloom the Museum of Bags Amsterdam invites nature in both figuratively and literally. From wildflower to hothouse flower, from panorama to landscape. From exotic leaves to floral still lifes. From delicately embroidered pockets to ornate petit point handbags. From the intricacies of gros point to abstract botanical patterns. From Louis Vuitton and Takashi Murakami’s ‘Cherry Blossom’ bowling bag to a whimsical bag illustrated by James Jean for Prada.
