An oldie but a goodie. Japanese graphic designer Taku Satoh has been in charge of the bulk of Issey Miyake’s visual identity. But one of my favorite designs he’s done is this very simple, lovely and elegant shopping bag for Issey Miyake’s more innovative retail project ELTTOB TEP, when it launched back in ’07.

PET bottle spelled backwards – the designer is fond of using the plastic to create new textiles – the line includes selections from all the other product lines as well as a very special  line of odor-free nail polish made with Japanese scallop shell powder and produced by Ueba Co., an artisanal brand in Kyoto with a 250-year history.
