From Apr 6, Isetan Mitsukoshi’s private brand Number Twenty-One will launch its latest collection of handbags designed in collaboration with designer/potter Makoto Kagoshima. The collection will be sold on the first floors of Isetan Shinjuku, Mitsukoshi Nihonbashi and Mitsukoshi Ginza department stores.

For the collaboration, Kagoshima designed four new patterns named Seven Sisters, Birds and Flowers (multicolor/yellow) and Five Flowers. For the project, Seiren Co., Ltd.’s Viscotecs print technology was used, bringing out the fine brush strokes in the prints.
