Committed to offering a combined culture-shopping experience, Printemps Louvre is supporting contemporary art through an exhibition of XXL works that provide an artistic vision of the handbag.

Six international artists have taken this iconic accessory and come up with their own "pop art" vision bursting with energy.

Each artist interprets their vision of the handbag, a genuine iconic object and a timeless fashion accessory.

Presented at the centre of the store's monumental hall, in a surface area covering 100 m² throughout the whole length of the store, the works strengthen the undeniable bond between the worlds of Art and Fashion.
