In the Museum of Bags and Purses

Until the 23rd of September “Made in Italy” is on display at the Museum of Bags and Purses. During this exposition the museum focuses on Italian design. It is immensely popular, but why is that. And what makes something true Italian design? Answers to these questions can be found in fashion accessories from famous designers such as Prada, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana.

The high quality of fabrics with special patterns (such as the distinct patterns of Emilio Pucci), contribute to the iconic Italian design.
