The book covers the history of the bag and its uses over the last 500 years, encompassing pouches, wallets, chatelaines, reticules, travel bags, minaudières, vanity cases, evening bags and well-known designer bags and It-bags. Read about Madonna's bag, the cupcake bag featured in the well-known film Sex and The City, and learn why the Kelly bag will continue to be timeless. Over the centuries, the bag has been influenced by trends in fashion, design and art, as well as by socio-cultural developments and the emancipation of women. BAGS presents the bag in all its diversity regarding its use, forms, materials and adornments. That's why it's a must for enthusiasts and professionals alike.
