Handbags are fashion detail that is number one of the most fashion worn worldwide. In honor to this, there is a museum  in South Korea. To show the timeless of a great handbag that is dating back to the 16th century. Styles may come and go, but this “Simone Handbag Museum”is for sure  a timeless showcase that is so committed– it is even shaped like a purse. With very specific architecture it gives a really honor to handbags and visitors are coming more from curiosity and fun because of the outside appearance.

Beside that this is a five story building a museum, lower levels have dedicated workshops that allow up and coming designers the chance to create a bag of their own and use the tools needed to make a purse. This is a great chance and experience as well for the experts and for beginners in “design job” also. Giving a inspiration for those designers  who wants to sell their crafted works; Here they will also have an area to market their merchandise. UAD Architects and Charlie Smith Design intentionally built out the structure as a giant handbag to invite in their target audience. If you are visiting  Seoul,Korea – make sure to visit this place. We are strongly recommending.
