Divided into three sections, it follows the themes Function, Status and Identity, and Design and Making with everything from military rucksacks and Winston Churchill's red despatch box to innovative designs by Mulberry and Karl Lagerfeld on display. Other highlights include a Fabergť Egg evening bag, a Fendi baguette bag and a Stella McCartney rucksack.
