What you can expect from this exhibition? Lots of Lancel bags! Bags to note – the first Lancel bag, a black silk number with mother-of-pearl and ivory details, a  black python bag made in the Art Deco era with gold buckles, a red Iguana canvas bucket bag with twin straps and gold jewelled clasp in retro style, the first Elsa bucket bag and the Parissienne bag.

The highlight of this exhibition is naturally, the classic “Bucket bag” which was created in 1929.
