Made in Britain
British designers are renowned for their craftsmanship, quality and attention to tradition that they combine with modern design. For the exhibition Made in Britain, the Bag and Purse Museum in Amsterdam drew from the recent collections of Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and even the catwalk collection of Lulu Guinness. Bags by Paul Smith, Anya Hind March, Bill Amberg and brands such as Mulberry and Burberry are also on display. Bags from English designers and brands from the museum's own collection complement these nicely. Photo: Empire bag, Alexander McQueen, 2008.
