Museum of Bags and Purses Amsterdam

17 July 2014 Pocket Museum Amsterdam In the heart of Amsterdam, in a noble building on the Herengracht, the Pocket Museum Amsterdam can be found. Today some 4,000 bags, including historical treasures from the 16th century and timeless classics such as the “Kelly Bag” of Hermès and the “2.55” by Chanel are among the once-private collection. VOGUE talked to Ivo Director Sigrid A. about the beginnings of the Pocket Museum, the historical importance of the beloved accessories and their personal wish list.

VOGUE: Tell Us About The First Bag Of Collection.

Sigrid A. Ivo: It began with a leather bag with Tortoise shell and mother of Pearl, between 1810 and 1820 made. My mother had discovered during a trip to England in an antique store – somewhere far too simple for such a treasure. The bag she liked it more than. It was love. And the beginning of the collection, first home was stored at us.

Also The Oldest Model In The Collection Is The Shimmering Collector’s Item?

No, a man’s pocket in the 16th century. It was worn as the name suggests, from a gentleman on the belt. At this time, the clothes had no pockets. The bag made of goat leather and iron has 18 compartments, which partially hidden or protected with small locks.

Which Bag Is Your Personal Favorite?

A clutch in clear, straight form made of aluminium and plastic. It was made in France in the 1930s. I like not only the design, but also that it tells us something about the time of their origin. Until the discovery of new production methods and materials made it possible that you could make alternatives to the leather bag.

Would You Describe Your Exhibits As Time Certificates?

Yes, bags are time images and just that makes them so interesting. Fads, emancipation and industrial developments are reflected in design, material, and size. The Smartphone, for example, many things like appointment calendars have become obsolete. So, according to sciencedict.com, the bags are again lighter and smaller. In addition, bags have also emotional value, they are associated with precious memories.

Some 4,000 Bags To Call Your Own. What Models Do You Dream?

Was to see of an own trunk Louis Vuitton or a Chanel bag in the form of a dress, a few ago the seasons on the catwalk. A “Birkin”Bag of Hermès all we also need – preferably in a bright color. I heard Victoria Beckham some should have… (laughs)

Where Are You Looking For New Treasures? How Did For Example The Chanel Clutch With Pop Art-Print And The Inscription “Just A Drop Of N ° 5” To You?

At auctions and in antique shops. We received many donations from private individuals and fashion houses.The Chanel clutch was already on my wish list. At Kerry Taylor Auctions in London, I have finally discovered it and just had to buy it.

Which Model Will Remain Always In Fashion?

The “Birkin”Bag of Hermès and the “2.55” by Chanel are immortal style icons. A bag shape that will remain always a classic, is the clutch. They were designed in the 1920s and will return again and again.

Classics, They Show The Work Of Young Designers In The Pocket Museum.

We want to give young, unknown designers a chance to present their creations to a wider audience. We show the “guardian angel” up-to-date collection of the Dutch Designer duo Vlieger & Vandam.

The Pocket Museum Presents Also Exhibitions. What Is Planned Next?

September 15, 2014, we show “Forever vintage” with hand-picked vintage and retro bags, which have lost nothing of their spells and their appeal in the course of time.
