15 September through 1 March 2015
With Forever Vintage, the Museum of Bags and Purses proves that timeless is not the same as ageless. Precious classics from the museum's collection are paired with inspired later originals and imitations, which have frequently inspired later designers in their turn.
During the Amsterdam Light Festival, the Museum of Bags and Purses is exhibiting four 'sea cucumber lamps' by designer, inventor and artist Eibert Draisma in the windows of the period rooms.
