From now until October 16, shoppers at Ngee Ann City, Singapore will be able to experience a day in the life of a Hermès Kelly bag for themselves. We’re quite certain you never wondered what life as a bag would be like but getting a Kelly’s eye view of the world if certainly intriguing. Standing 12 feet high, the to-scale replica of the iconic Kelly is part of a traveling exhibition called Kellydoscope by Hermès.

Having already traveled to Hong Kong, London and Kuala Lumpur, the exhibit is one that will rock your world, literally. The interactive exhibit invites you to step inside (into the oversized Kelly) where three short films will be played as you sit on a stool fashioned after the unmistakable orange Hermès box. Make no mistake though, sitting still is not what this exhibition is about and you should prepare yourself accordingly. Just as bags are brought around in the world, experiencing lots of ups and downs, bumps and jostles, so too will you; the Kellydoscope moves around in a way that mimics the motions the bags experience in each of the three films. In terms of immersive experiences, this one is unique and somewhat unsettling even.

Carefree and charming, the short films explore the various lifestyles of a woman who owns and adores her very own Kelly bag. Explore these extraordinary moments for yourself by visiting the Kellydoscope exhibition. Only one person can experience the exhibit at a time so be prepared to wait your turn.

The Kellydoscope exhibition is located at Ngee Ann City Atrium from 10am to 9.30pm daily until October 16.
