Handbags: The Making of a Museum
Regular price £29.95
This book charts the acquisition and curation of the collection for the Simone Handbag Museum in Seoul, South Korea. Handbags: The Making of a Museum features excellent photographs of the Museum's collection of handbags including English sweet meat purses from the late sixteenth century; an impressive array of couture items, including a 1928 Cartier evening bag accented with emeralds, diamonds, and mother-of-pearl; as well as contemporary designs including a bag shaped like a champagne bucket and bottle, complete with fake ice.
Chapters are also devoted to a discussion of the actual creation and design of the museum, including the making and posing of the mannequins.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in fashion and all handbag addicts.
