Curated by Dr Lucia Savi, Bags: Inside Out provides an unprecedented and comprehensive look at the ultimate accessory and examines the worldwide heritage of these highly covetable objects from the 16th century to today. The exhibition explores the function, status and craftsmanship of bags, and people’s longstanding fascination with this global obsession.

The final section of the exhibition “Collecting Bags” is co-curated by Swire Properties exclusively for the Chinese Mainland tour. This section features 10 bags from award-winning actress Tang Wei’s private collection representing cherished moments in the star’s life and career.
