One Piece of Leather Transformational Fun
GUSTON is the new iconic bag from ISSEY MIYAKE, made from a single piece of top-quality leather.
The long-cherished concept of ISSEY MIYAKE translates into the GUSTON bag made from one piece of leather.
The name GUSTON is the fusion of three words; Guided by the laminated print of overlapping colors, the structure changes its form under the concept of one piece of leather.
GUSTON, GUSTON… While you repeat this playful sound every day when you use this bag, it will become your favorite companion and your own unique GUSTON, the bag of quality and a playful mind.
GUSTON handbags and tote bags are reversible. The bag offers a completely different look when the solid-colored inside is turned outside. To reverse a bag, simply unzip it, turn it inside-out, and zip it up again. Every time you do this, the playful bag changes its form, and each bag comes with an inside pouch for unbeatable convenience.
The fuzzy surface of leather, normally never outwardly seen, is decorated with colorful and graphical print patterns. The multiple colors are applied in layers and laminated to create small difference in height between the thickly-inked part and the thinly-inked part. These grooves act as guide lines to change the form of the bag in its own unique way.
