Tassenmuseum Hendrikje Amsterdam: surprising street couture

Tassenmuseum Hendrikje: celebrate 20 extraordinary years

We’re fan of Tassenmuseum Hendrikje for several reasons: it’s located in a beautiful 17th century canal house, the museum has a special story and the collection of more than 5,000 bags, pouches, accessories, suitcases and purses is at least as beautiful.

Yet we now have another reason why you should quickly visit the Museum: Tassenmuseum Hendrikje celebrates its twentieth anniversary. In the past 20 years, the museum has become one of the ten best fashion museums in the world and to celebrate this, Tassenmuseum Hendrikje will exhibit three extraordinary expositions.

One of those special exhibitions, Street Couture, has nog started and is definitely worth a visit. At this exhibition it’s all about mix and match: high end fashion is combined with street fashion, sports and pop culture. You’ll see the couture classics of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Dior and Alexander McQueen combined with street fashion from all around the world.

In addition to this collection – which can be seen until June 5th – and the very cool permanent collection, Tassenmuseum Hendrikje will show another two special collections: It’s a Man’s World, where it’s all about the man bag and Royal Bags, where bags of the royalty are exposed. Tip: book a high tea or lunch in one of the style rooms with your mother, sister or girlfriends!
